This chai pumpkin spice latte is a coffee-free alternative for the fall classic! It’s dairy-free, paleo, and AIP-friendly.


  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp allspice (omit for AIP, or see notes)
  • 3/4 tsp nutmeg (sub mace for AIP)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 black tea bag
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (use alcohol free for AIP)
  • 12 tbsp coconut cream (optional)
  • Star anise for garnish (omit for AIP)


  1. Prepare the spice blend of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, allspice, and nutmeg (or mace). Stir to combine and set aside.
  2. Using a small pot, bring the water to a low boil. Remove from the heat and add the tea bag, allowing to steep for 5-10 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bag.
  3. Add the spice blend to the tea along with the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Add to a blender and blend on low to fully combine. Return to the heat for 2-3 minutes if a warmer drink is desired.
  4. Serve topped with coconut cream and garnish with star anise if desired.
