Coconut Dirty Chai Iced Latte

Serves 2

Whether you are trying to trim up your budget or your waistline, the good news is you can still enjoy yummy and fun coffee-centric drinks without visiting the local hot spot. Channel your inner barista and whip up this coffeehouse-inspired iced latte right in your own kitchen.



  • 1½ teaspoons raw honey, divided
  • 1 tablespoon toasted, unsweetened coconut*
  • 1 cup strong brewed chai tea, cooled to room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1 cup ice


Using clean fingers or a spoon, rim 2 glasses with ½ teaspoon honey and roll in toasted coconut.

Combine chai, espresso powder, coconut milk and remaining honey in a blender. Blend at high speed for 10 seconds. Reduce to low speed and gradually add ice until combined.

Serve immediately in coconut-rimmed glasses.

*To make toasted coconut, preheat oven to 350° F. Place ½ cup raw, unsweetened coconut on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Toast in the oven for 1 to 2 minutes, or just until a caramel color begins to develop. Cool and store in a tightly sealed container at room temperature.
