Chai tai smoothie recipe
Smooth and creamy with the perfect infusion of spices, this beverage is a delicious blend of sweet and pure.
If the world were ending, I’d make this decadent treat my finale. The incredible creaminess and blend of warm spices will make you weak in the knees. The boosters add an injection of protein and omega-3s, so you may feel a tad less cheeky as you head to heaven.
1 cup (240ml) unsweetened almond milk or other nut, grain, or seed milk (strained if homemade)
1 cup (240ml) coconut water
1/4 cup (43g) chopped pitted dates (soaked, if using a conventional blender)
1 teaspoon natural vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
Pinch of ground cloves
Pinch of natural salt (optional, to bring out flavors)
2 medium frozen sliced bananas
1 cup (125g) ice cubes (optional)
1 tablespoon blanched raw almonds, soaked
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flaxseed oil
1. Throw all of the ingredients into your blender and puree on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until smooth and creamy.
