Try This Creamy, Tea-Infused Strawberry-Chocolate Breakfast Latte

On a recent chocolate strawberry-eating marathon, I wondered: could I make a tea-infused breakfast drink that tastes like chocolate-covered strawberries? The answer is YES, and that’s what this blog post is about—and it’s really good. It’s loaded with antioxidants, polyphenols, and bone-building minerals, along with fiber and healthy fats, but best of all: it's rich, decadent, and delicious, and 100% vegan.

For the tea, I chose a chocolate-coconut oolong blend for both flavor and high antioxidant content. Fun fact: of all the teas, oolong is the most effective fat burner. (Thanks, oolong!) I wanted it to be rich and creamy, so for that I chose decadent macadamia nuts rather than using milk. Macadamias contain antioxidants, and are believed to promote healthy blood sugar levels while also supporting heart and brain health. Instead of honey or maple syrup, I chose medjool dates to add sweetness, because dates are high in fiber and nutrients. Strawberries are not only delicious, they are great for your heart, eyes, and immune system. 

When you're ready, let’s head into the kitchen and get started!

Recipe serves 2

You will need:

2 tsp. Bulletproof Breakfast (or substitute your favorite oolong or puehr tea and add 1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder)

2 cups purified hot water

1 cup macadamia nuts, pre-soaked and drained

1 nut milk bag or super fine kitchen strainer

3 pitted medjool dates

3 large, ripe, juicy strawberries

a high powered blender

medjool dates

Heat the water in a kettle, then steep the Bulletproof Breakfast (or other tea) for 3 minutes, and strain. Pour the tea into your blender with the soaked macadamia nuts (cocoa powder also, if you're using an unflavored tea) and blend until smooth.  It will be somewhat grainy, which is why I listed a nut milk bag in the ingredient list. (You can get that right here) Pour the blended tea/macadamia nut mixture through the nut milk bag or use your finest kitchen strainer.

After straining, add the liquid back into your blender with the pitted dates and strawberries, and blend until smooth. Feel free to reheat or enjoy as is.

Pour into your favorite mugs, sprinkle with a pinch of cocoa powder, and voila! Delicious!
