Sweet, rich comfort in a cup

I’m sure that I don’t need to tell you about my deep and abiding passion for coffee. It’s a real and genuine love.

But when my auto immune disease flares up, coffee is not my friend. When my digestive system is raw and inflamed, the last thing I should be drinking is coffee.

During a flare up, I’ve always reached for a sugar-free hot chocolate or caved in and drank chai with sugar added, which just ends up making me feel ill.

I need sweet, creamy and gently but beautifully spiced at these times to bring me comfort from within.

Ta da! Enter this divine sugar-free chai mix, made with collagen for added gut health.

The collagen creates a lovely froth but if you would like it ever frothier, feel free to switch it out for good quality grass-fed gelatin. Just make sure that you blend it straight away and very well.

I make mine with cream and water but you could use whichever plant based milk appeals to you, or if you are non-keto you could just go with dairy.

Enjoy!

  • 1/2 cup of organic grass-fed collagen powder
