This Creamy Chai Tea Gelatin Bites recipe is made with an herbal tea similar to chai and a bit of coconut milk to make it creamy. You could easily use chai (though it’d be unlikely to be decaf) or just leave out the coconut milk and use any other herbal or decaf tea.

One of my favorite memories as a kid was making Jello and slurping up the nearly-set wiggly goodness, though I’m sure I just really liked the sweetness and artificial strawberry flavoring best. I’ve recently run across a few recipes for herbal tea gelatin cubes and decided to put my own spin on it.

Gelatin is essentially a colloid gel that’s derived from collagen and most commonly obtained from animal products. If you’ve ever made chicken soup that turned gelatinous and wiggly in the refrigerator, gelatin is to thank for that. It’s high in glycine and proline (two nonessential amino acids) and helps improve joint health, the strength of fingernails, and digestion among others.

This recipe is unsweetened.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp high-quality gelatin
  • 1 cup of hot brewed herbal tea brewed with 2 tea bags sub chai or other tea of choice
  • 2 tbsp full-fat coconut milk

Instructions

  1. Brew the tea with boiling water. Once itโ€™s steeped, remove the tea bags. Allow the tea to cool a bit so that itโ€™s warm to the touch and the gelatin will dissolve. If you put gelatin in boiling water it will denature and not set.
  2. Stir in the gelatin and dissolve completely.
  3. Add the coconut milk and stir.
  4. Pour into silicon muffin cups or a glass storage container. Refrigerate until set, 2-3 hours.
