Can I literally call this recipe the new-age chai latte? This is a dairy-free, caffeine-free and refined sugar-free chai latte recipe. Chai tea is a rich, spicy and aromatic drink that has in the last decade captured a lot of loyal tea drinking fans. There are many different variations of chai tea on the market but the classic chai tea is usually a blend of black tea with cloves, cardamom, black pepper, and ginger. Black tea is the base of chai tea and is very rich in powerful antioxidants. Instead of using dairy milk, I opted to use almond butter.
Chickpeas are also known as garbanzo beans. However you prefer to call them, they are extremely healthy for you.

This recipe makes an excellent main, side or snack dish. You can vary the flavor profile by adding some cayenne pepper this time or adding some paprika the next time. The possibilities are endless!
