Chai Latte Recipe Coffee Alternative

If you’re looking for a flavorful, nourishing chai latte recipe, you’re in the right place.

In this recipe, I use MUDWTR as the base – a coffee alternative from my 5 coffee alternatives to wake up list.

If you don’t have access to MUD, I recommend finding a trusted masala chai mix.

This is why MUDWTR is my top choice for making a chai latte:

  1. Mud is jam-packed with adaptogens that can help with mental and physical performance, such as  lion’s mane, chaga and reishi mushrooms (you can’t taste them!)
  2. It’s super easy to brew – just add hot water or milk/nut milk of your choice.
  3. It has no sugar, added sweetener or added flavors – you can sweeten it to taste with your sweetener of choice.

This one time in India, a saddhu (ascetic) invited me to his home made out of cow dung, and made me a cup of dreamy buffalo milk chai. This recipe brings me straight back!

Ingredients to make 1 serving of chai latte: 

  • 1 – 1.5 Tablespoon MUDWTR – depending on how strong you like it
  • 1/3 cup fresh boiled water
  • 1 cup steamed oat milk or another milk of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped or shaved
  • 1-2 teaspoons monkfruit or coconut sugar


  1. Place 1-1.5 tablespoons MUDWTR and sweetener of your choice (optional) in a cup you’ll be drinking from
  2. Add 1/3 cup fresh boiled water and mix well until the powder dissolves
  3. Steam 1 cup milk (I love oat milk), and pour it over your MUDWTR with hot water
  4. Serve with fresh ginger on top
  5. Set an intention and enjoy!

Optionally, you can make it a dirty chai latte by adding a shot of espresso.
