The cusp of fall is a season unto itself. You’re craving warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, yet it’ still a billion degrees outside. Sure, you can sweat your butt off as you indulge in a cup of hot apple cider… or, you can combine the best of both worlds. This is a refreshing, cool drink that evokes images of a roaring fireplace and fleece socks.
This Dirty Chai Protein Smoothie does exactly that. It has ginger, cinnamon, cardamom and honey to add a hint of sweetness. Since I usually drink smoothies to replace breakfast, a scoop of Vega protein powder ensures I won’t get hungry an hour later.
Now this recipe isn’t really a recipe – but more of a guideline to your perfect chai smoothie. Mix and match to your heart desires. Enjoy.
1 very ripe frozen banana
4 coffee ice cubes (or 1/2 cup iced coffee)
Scoop of Vega Protein Powder
1. Combine all ingredients to your liking and blend until smooth. Add the almond milk slowly until you reach your desired consistency, too much and it’ll get too liquid-y.
Optional: Top with coconut whipped cream.
