Living life without sugar ain’t always easy. It’s difficult enough when you’re skipping the sweet stuff for health reasons by choice – but when you’ve got diabetes there’s no compromise.
Aura Chai founder Rose isn’t diabetic, but both her grandparents on one side had Type 2 Diabetes. She avoids sugar for health reasons, opting for unrefined and low GI alternatives. “I was really keen to make sure our chai latte blends could be enjoyed by everyone. That’s why I made them without sugar or sweeteners. This way people can add their own – whatever they like, and however much they like!”
If you’re a chai latte lover you might feel as though you often have to miss out on your favourite treat. But what if you could enjoy a delicious, spicy, diabetic-friendly chai latte at home? Read on to find out more!

One thing I have always loved about Starbucks (sorry cofficionados!) is their frappuccinos. On a hot day the creamy frozen coffee totally hits the spot!

Once upon a time a beautiful woman fell in love with a handsome Persian prince. She knew that as she was not a princess herself, she couldn’t get him to notice her without a little help – so she baked a delicious, aromatic cake filled with magical love potions. There are two endings to the story – in one they live happily every after (my favourite), in the other the prince shuns her advances and she eats the entire cake to herself! Now these gorgeous cakes are popular at extra special occasions such as weddings and sunshine-soaked summer parties.
