Frozen Chai Tea Latte

This post marks the beginning of a whole month of frozen treats! All month long I’ll be featuring healthy frozen desserts, smoothies, ice cream, frozen yogurt, and more – so stay tuned for a summer of refreshments like this Frozen Chai Tea Latte!

You know those afternoons where you need a little pick-me-up, but want it to be at least kind of healthy and not keep you up all night?

I have those all the time.

A frozen chai tea latte is my favorite solution.

This frothy, creamy, icy drink – which tastes like Chai tea + a mango lassi (traditional Indian mango-yogurt smoothie) in one – is super refreshing as well as energizing. It would also make a tasty light breakfast.

You can easily make this drink vegan by replacing the powdered milk with powdered soy milk, or with coconut yogurt.

Iced Blended Chai Latte
 
Prep time
Total time
 
A refreshing afternoon pick-me-up, reminiscent of both a Chai tea and Mango Lassi.
Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
  • 10 oz strong-brewed Chai tea (made with 2 teabags + 8oz boiling water), cooled to room temp
  • ½ cup light coconut milk
  • 3 Tbsp powdered nonfat milk
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp cloves
  • 1 cup frozen mango chunks
  • 2-3 cups ice cubes
Instructions
  1. Place first 6 ingredients in a blender and pulse until combined.
  2. Add frozen mango and ice and blend on high until mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Notes
Add more or less ice/mango depending on how thick you like your drinks. I like them thick and frothy! To make this dairy-free, use powdered soy milk or ½ cup coconut yogurt in place of the powdered milk.

    you know this drink is right up my alley! i’ve been making a similar version actually – minus the mango. it’s even lighter. and less calories. just iced tea, powdered milk, and ice cubes! i’ve been meaning to make ice tea ice cubes so that the flavor would be even more intense! yum.

    Our mouths just watered! Thanks so much for sharing this! Your pictures are beautifully done as well! A nice combination of chai and mango. We tried the link below recently, but we are definitely going to tasting this one before summer officially ends!
