    3. Spiced Chai Latte

    Most chai latte powders contain dairy ingredients and are not suitable for vegans. However red espresso® have cut out all dairy and still kept their chai lattes rich, creamy and indulgent – just the way you love your chai lattes to taste. Made following the traditional Masala chai recipe using authentic Indian spices and real black tea, the red espresso® range of chai lattes is sure to become your daily favourite. Made from ingredients that are non-GMO and contain no milk, gluten, partially hydrogenated oils or cheap oil blends, no artificial sweeteners or colourants and no palm oil.

    Available in two delicious flavours: Spiced and Vanilla Chai Latte. Pairs well with all plant milks but we recommend Oat Milk for an extra-creamy chai experience.

    4. Vanilla Chai Latte

    Of the two chai flavours that red espresso® offer, the Vanilla Chai Latte is a more mellow blend of mild spice and vanilla.

    5. Green Tea Matcha Latte

    Matcha is made from green tea leaves that have been stone ground into a fine powder. The caffeine and l-theanine content in Matcha gives you a calm, sustained energy release and can help to improve attention, memory and reaction time. The antioxidants in Matcha help fight free radicals in the body that can cause certain diseases.

    Our red espresso® Matcha Latte Mix is made from exceptional grade Japanese Matcha that has been carefully blended with just a hint of coconut sugar to give you the sweetness without the high glycaemic index of cane sugar. This creates a taste that is well-balanced and flavourful when added to plant milk.

    Recipe

    1. Add 5g red espresso® Matcha Latte Mix to your cup
    2. Add 30ml hot water and mix well to combine the ingredients
    3. Heat up your milk or dairy alternative. Pour into your cup and stir well.

      Can be made iced too with a few ice blocks and cold milk!

      6. Golden Turmeric Latte

      Known as the Golden Super Spice, Turmeric is a powerful anti-inflammatory, immunity booster and digestive aid. The secret to why turmeric is so good for you lies in the curcumin that it contains.
