Suzanne’s Nourishing Chai

chaiHello, yoga friends.

Instead of looking for a sugar fix, I drink this chai in the evenings as a indulgent drink. I just love it. My version is less heating than a lot of chai recipes. This has no caffeine or tea. And you’ll notice that it’s missing the typical cinnamon. I’m allergic to cinnamon. But if you like cinnamon, then add some – but not before bed. Cinnamon is too invigorating.

Suzanne’s Nourishing Chai


  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 tsp fennel powder
  • 2 tsp coriander powder
  • 3 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 star anise
  • 4 slices of fresh ginger
  • 4 cups of cashew milk (almond milk or whole milk would be good too!)
  • maple syrup to taste

Bring water and spices to soft boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Add cashew milk or your choice of milk, simmer for 10 minutes. Add maple syrup upon serving.

Makes 4 servings.

(Gratitude for Sweet Asrael who gave me a chai recipe that I made my own. I’m not aware of the original source)
