Iced Coconut Chai Tea Latte

A handful of quality ingredients make a compelling iced coconut chai tea latte. This cold, creamy, and satisfying treat is the perfect compliment to a warm day.

I've never seen myself as someone who would just whip up a latte. Isn't that what Starbucks is for? That is until I ran across this recipe and it looked so amazing that I had to give it a go. I'm proud to say I nailed it on the first try!

Making an Iced Coconut Chai Latte

The original recipe called for agave nectar as a sweetener. I used honey instead since I had it on hand. I think adding simple syrup to taste would work fine too.

The Secret's in the Coconut Milk

This was my first experience with canned coconut milk. I use the more watered-down stuff from a carton for cereal or coffee.

But for a latte...the canned milk is irresistibly thick and creamy, yielding amazing results that would be hard to match with any other kind of milk. It also makes the latte dairy-free if that's important to you. Coconut milk naturally separates so be sure to stir it up really well before adding it to your drink.
