Everyone needs a pick-me-up sometimes. But, why not break from tradition and try something other than coffee? I know, I know—it can be hard to imagine. But, I promise that this Vegan Chai Latte will wake you up too!
A lot of us are used to downing endless cups of coffee to make it through the workday. But, there are definitely the noticable non-desirable side effects of our modern drug.
Coffee is responsible for stomach upset in a lot of people and in our busy lives, it can quickly become addictive!
As a result, avid coffee drinkers are looking to natural alternatives to kick their habit.
Herbal lattes are one awesome alternative that can help you kick your coffee addiction to the curb once and for all.
Even better, they have holistic benefits that can target particular parts of the body and improve their function!
This Vegan Chai Latte is made with anti-inflammatory spices (ginger and cinnamon) so it can actually aid with gut health rather than disrupt it.
Start the day with this latte or combine with a light snack like a Raw Cookie Dough Energy Bite. It’s latte time!
