Recipe type: Drinks
Serves: 5 to 6 servings
  • 1 cup strong black tea, freshly made
  • 6 tablespoons sugar, or other sweetener to taste (see Sweetener Note below)
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder, preferably Dutch processed
  • 4 cups plain dairy-free milk beverage (I used almond milk beverage)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  1. Pour the tea into a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the sugar and cocoa powder and cook, stirring until dissolved and until the mixture just comes to a boil.
  2. Remove the mocha tea from the heat and whisk in the milk beverage, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. Warm the mocha spice tea over low heat until heated through, approximately 5 to 7 minutes.
  4. Pour into cups to serve.
Sweetener Note: This mocha spice tea will work with most sweeteners. You can even swap in coconut sugar for a less sweet, paleo-friendly beverage, or your favorite sugar-free alternative for a keto-friendly drink.
