Coconut oil + chai hot chocolate

This delicious combination of chai + chocolate will delight your taste buds and is easy to recreate at home.  It’s a perfect way to add some sweet & spice flavour to your morning tea break!

The result looks like a milky cocoa that is spiced with the flavour of chai. YUM!



Chai spice mix 

¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

2 teaspoons ground ginger

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon 

3 cardamom pods

5 cloves 

½ nutmeg, grated


Hot chocolate

150ml coconut milk

100ml full fat milk or any plant based milk of your choice

½ teaspoon chai spice

1 teaspoon agave or maple syrup

1 tablespoon of Blue Coconut oil, either virgin or refined

70g dark chocolate 



Mix the ground spices together.  Crush the cardamom and cloves with a pestle
and mortar (or rolling pin) and add them to the ground spice mix, along with the finely-grated nutmeg. 

Pour both milks and chai spice into a small pan and bring to a near boil. Remove from heat, cover, and allow to infuse for 30 minutes.  Then, strain the milk through a fine sieve, return to pan, add agave or maple syrup, and heat to about 60°C.  Add the dark chocolate and coconut oil then give it a good whisk. 

If you have a coffee machine with a steamer wand hand, you can froth your drink until airy!
