Paleo Chai Latte

The perfect breakfast beverage, Paleo Chai Latte, made with warming Ayurvedic spices will keep you cozy during the cold weather. Made with eggs, coconut oil, and antioxidant rich chai spices including cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves, this rich hot drink makes a great on-the-go breakfast. Sometimes I serve Paleo Chai Latte as a healthy snack in the afternoon, since it gives me a burst of real energy without any of the caffeine.

Giving Up Coffee and Caffeine

Speaking of caffeine, while many people on the paleo diet start their days off with bulletproof coffee, I do not. I haven’t had coffee since 1993. I think I had a headache for three days straight when I gave up coffee cold turkey a couple of decades ago. My body simply doesn’t tolerate caffeine. The silver lining of giving up coffee is my homemade Dandelion Root Coffee, my favorite coffee substitute beverage. In the winter I drink it almost every day, and a couple of times per week in the summer.

Caffeine-Free Dandelion Root Coffee

Fans rave about my Dandelion Root Coffee. Like regular coffee, its primary flavor is bitter, a flavor that is highly underrated in our culture and very important in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine. Finally, my homemade Dandelion Root Coffee is a great liver cleanser. For me, giving up caffeine and getting healthy liver cleansing dandelion root into my body every day is a win-win!

Paleo Chai Latte for Breakfast

This Paleo Chai Latte is another great hot drink that’s similar to chai tea, or a chai latte! It’s packed with protein from eggs, and full of fabulous fat from coconut oil. If you are raw egg-phobic, the great thing about this paleo drink is that the boiling water poaches the eggs a bit. If you’re looking for a quick and easy, healthy breakfast recipe this is it!

Another benefit of this paleo breakfast drink? No pan to wash after breakfast. Just rinse out the container of your blender or throw it in the dishwasher, and you’re set! Feel free to customize Paleo Chai Latte to your liking with more eggs or coconut oil. To make this a Keto Diet recipe, omit the date and use stevia. Paleo Chai Latte is my new favorite healthy breakfast recipe.

  1. I really love this recipe. It really helps when I have brain malfunctions because it is easy and simple to make. It is do-able. I love the minimal ingredient factor. I have even left out the date/stevia completely. Thank you Elana <3

  2. Elana:
    Thank you for the Paleo Chai Latte recipe. This drink is a quick boost to our day on Saturday or Sunday morning when my wife and I are trying to catch up on food prep for the coming week. This recipe is quick, and efficient, and it doesn’t leave a wake of dirty prep tools in its path from creation to consumption. The spicy warmth of this drink, and the energy we have after drinking it should truly warrant this recipe being a staple in your permanent listings.

    Thanks again for all your efforts and for the wonderful items that you share with the world.

  3. I just tried this recipe today. It’s delicious and filling. I did steep a teabag in the boiling water like one of the other readers did and added one more date (I have a sweet tooth!) Boy, I felt like I was having a delicious drink at Starbucks!!!! Great recipe.

  4. Hi. I am new to this group. I love your recipes but I am allergic to coconut oil and coconut milk. What do you recommend as a substitute?

  6. Can we just stop with this paelo nonsense? It’s utterly stupid to think paleolicic people were sitting around drinking chai lattes with coconut oil and cardamom. Seriously, just stop.
