Homemade VERY Skinny Chai Tea Latte with Almond Milk & Splenda or Stevia – 10 Calories!

Chai Tea Latte is one of my go-to Starbucks orders and if I am feeling concerned about calories that day, I’ll order the Skinny version. I drink a lot of hot tea at home but only recently have tried to make a version of a Skinny Chai Tea Latte. It’s not a perfect re-creation, but it’s close enough for me. It has the spicy sweetness I’m after, but lacks the thick richness that comes from even non-fat regular milk. Still, at 10 calories, it makes me very happy!

The one tool you will need that you might not have is a battery-operated Milk Frother, like my Aerolatte Original Handheld Milk Frother that has been sitting in a drawer for years before I finally decided to play around with it.

 

In addition to a milk frother you will need:

  • Chai Tea (bagged or loose)
  • Hot water
  • Almond Milk (or your favorite milk)
  • Splenda (or your favorite sweetener)

To start, heat some water to boiling. (I don’t know how I survived so long without an electric tea kettle. I love my Mueller with its quick heating and cool blue lights!)

 

Choose your favorite Chai Tea and brew a strong cup. (I’m using O Organics Chai Tea bags from Vons.) I let it steep for about 10 minutes, just to get the spiciest cup I can. I’ve ordered this Vadham Chai Tea sampler that will arrive in my next Amazon Subscribe & Save order and maybe with a higher quality Chai, I won’t have to steep so long.

 

Prepare your milk  (I prefer to do this towards the end of the steep)

Make sure your milk is very cold and pour about 1-2 oz in a small cup. (I use Sprouts Organic Unsweetened Almond Milk)

Add a teaspoon of sweetener to the milk (maybe less if you are using flavored almond milk or maybe none at all if you are using a cow milk-based product. Unsweetened almond milk froth has little taste. And since you don’t have the milk-fat creating richness, a sweetener will add flavor).

Place your frother in the cup and turn it on. (Don’t have it powered on before you put it in the liquid.) Get a good swirling action going and lift the frother up and down to increase the volume, turning the milk into a froth.

At this point, remove the teabag and add a bit of sweetener to the tea, if you are so inclined.

Gently pour the froth on top of the tea and enjoy!
