Spice Up Your Morning Coffee Without The Added Sugar

Sugar and spice seem to go hand in hand, right? But what if you are trying to limit sugar to meet your health goals? If you love the warm, comforting spice of a chai latte, but usually skip it because of the sugar content, we’ve got the answer.

Chai, a fragrant and flavorful spiced tea, has gained immense popularity worldwide in recent years. Originating in India, chai has become a beloved beverage enjoyed by people from all walks of life.

It’s not surprising why chai is so popular. Chai is a versatile beverage that can be enjoyed hot or cold. Chai can also be made with different types of milk, such as almond milk or soy milk and can be enjoyed on its own, or added to coffee or espresso for an added caffeine boost.

How Much Sugar Is In Chai?

The amount of sugar you’ll find in your chai depends on how it’s made and where you order it from. At a local coffee shop, you’ll likely order a chai latte. And that order typically comes with a lot of sugar. For example, 16oz. Chai Latte at Starbucks packs more sugar than a can of Coca-Cola—a whopping 42 grams of sugar. That’s 10 teaspoons of sugar in one drink.

So what’s the alternative? Do you have to give up your favorite sweet and spicy morning coffee? Not anymore.

At 5Sparrows Brand we created a chai drink mix that is sweet and mildly spicy AND is naturally sweetened and 100% sugar free. You’ll love it mixed with coffee to enjoy as a “Dirty Chai Tea Latte.” Alternately, mix it in with your favorite hot milk or milk alternative for a warm, creamy, treat that will satisfy your cravings without sacrificing your health goals.

Here are three of our most popular chai recipes that use our 5 Sparrows Brand Spiced Chai Drink Mix to inspire you.
