Why You Should Make This Chamomile Latte
This cozy latte will be ready in 10 minutes, just enough time to allow the chamomile flowers too steep and allow the flavors to come through. There are no excuses to not have this mug of comfort before bed to help you relax.
I made this chamomile latte is sugar free and low carb, but you can also use honey instead of monk fruit, especially if you have a sore throat. Honey naturally coats your throat and helps reduce some inflammation.
Besides its powerful calming properties, chamomile has many other health benefits. Chamomile has been shown to help lower blood sugar for those who have diabetes, help reduce inflammation and may even help treat mild cold symptoms.
I am always looking for ways to reduce inflammation so why not enjoy a delicious drink at the same time?
- Chamomile flowers - I use these dried organic flowers for this recipe. I love that this one has a resealable bag to maintain freshness too.
- Monk fruit - You can also use honey for a non-sugar free option if you'd like.
- Vanilla extract - I use pure vanilla extract which doesn’t contain any artificial flavors or additives, it’s just pure vanilla made from alcohol. I use this one.
- Almond milk- I used unsweetened almond milk to make sure there are no added sugars or ingredients in this chamomile latte.
- Cinnamon - My favorite spice! Cinnamon is so versatile and I use it for most of my sweet recipes and baked goods.
