This chai latte is made completely from scratch and helps balance your hormones and stress levels!



Chai mix


  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp eleuthero (can also sub ashwagandha or cordyceps)


  1. Gently break the cardamom pods, cloves and peppercorns in a mortar & pestle just until lightly crushed to release the flavour.
  2. Add the crushed spices to a small pot with the rest of the chai mix ingredients, except for the oolong tea, and bring to a boil, whisking for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-high and let bubble for another 5 minutes. the mixture should begin to thicken just slightly.
  4. Add the oolong tea and let sit for 3-4 minutes, then remove from heat and strain the mixture.
  5. To prepare the latte, blend the cashews, water, vanilla extract, salt and eleuthero together in a high-speed blender until smooth and creamy. (about 30-60 second)
  6. Heat the cashew milk in a frother, pot, or microwave. (or you’re blender if it has a heating setting)
  7. Pour 1/2 cup of the chai latte mix into your cup and top with the hot cashew milk.
  8. Sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon and enjoy.


I like to use a heating frother to warm up the cashew milk.

Store any extra chai mix and cashew milk separately in the fridge.
