Warm yourself up with this delicious recipe for Ninja Chai Tea – high in fat, low in carbs and sugar-free
4 rooibos teabags (Black teabags will work too)
2 cups of water (500 ml)
1 tsp ground mixed spice (cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger)
1/2 tsp ground ginger powder or a chunk of fresh peeled ginger
1 cinnamon stick (Optional)
4 whole cloves
6 crushed, whole cardamom seeds
1 tsp black peppercorns
1 Tbsp coconut oil
2 Tbsp Cream (You can use a bit more to taste – but this is the only component that will push up the carbs)
stevia powder (optional)
In a saucepan on high heat, combine the water teabags and spices. Allow to boil for a few minutes before removing from the heat to steep for 5 minutes.
Add all three fats to a blender. Use a sieve to strain the spiced tea mix into the blender.
Add a knife point of debittered stevia if you would prefer a bit sweeter tea.
Blend for a minute or until all the fats have emulsified and you see a creamy, frothy, rich consistency.
Sprinkle with a bit of mixed spice or ground cinnamon.
Yields 2 servings at about 1 gram of carbs per cup.
