Beetroot, Matcha & Chocolate Chai-Healthy teas you must consume everyday.

Warm up from the inside out with our simple recipes. These teas are warming, invigorating, and healthier alternative to your regular tea or coffee. I have been feeling a bit unwell for  a while and i just wanted to give my body  some heavyduty nutrition. My Ayurveda doc has asked me to stay away from raw foods so i decided to take my smoothie recipes and decided to give them a twist for my chai. I also follow an amazing blog called @pickuplimes, and there was one recipe which really inspired me and i took some bits from there to make my chai lattes for the blog.

My first recipe is the Beetroot chai, this gorgeous dairy free chai latte is  sweet, fragrant from all the spices that i have used and very smooth in texture.
