Coconut Milk Beverages

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 22, 2011 at 3:30 PM

I'm trying again to quit coffee because I have issues even with decaf. I find hot coconut beverages serve as a satisfying substitute.

The one I drink is composed of hot water, coconut milk and curry powder.

Does anyone have suggestions for others? Please no suggestions that include anything that remotely has sugar in it.

Thank you!

Chai doesn't need to have tea leaves in it. It's pretty easy to locate just the spice blend, or you can make your own. Usually some mix of cardamom, ginger, fennel, cinnamon, peppercorn and cloves. Maybe star anise. I add turmeric to mine for the anti-inflammatory benefit.

@Stephanie, I checked what I wrote down and I don't have amounts for the cocoa and cayenne. They are just to taste.

I was under the impression that most loose-leaf chai is herbal, and does not contain caffeine.

Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice tea is one - it's herbal, with no caffeine. Gluten-free, but I know a lot of herbal teas contain some soy, so you might want to check on that if you're strict.

Thank you. I'm actually trying to steer clear of caffeine. Maybe there is decaf chai?

I really like this idea. Can you give me some kind of idea about the ratios you would use when making this type of drink for yourself? Thanks!

Try adding unsweetened cocoa powder...whatever amount that you can tolerate the bitterness of. Also try adding a little cayenne powder. A small amount will give a hint of flavor, and a little more makes a nice spicy cocoa drink.

Coconut milk based chai tea with a healthy dose of turmeric in it. But without anything sweetening it, go easy on the spices.
