Lately, I've been completely crazy for fall flavours. Especially Chai. If you follow my blog, you may have noticed that Chai has been sprinkled in some posts here and there. Think of my birthday cake, the felt acorn pouches I made for my friends, or even the chai scones I whipped up last night (recipe to come this week).
Well my breakfasts have not been exempt of chai flavours either lately. I'm a smoothie-for-breakfast kind of girl. I don't take the time to sit down in the mornings, but I always make time for proper nutrition in the am. Sometimes it's green smoothies, sometimes it's other smoothies. Lately, it's been ALL chai smoothies. Like every weekday morning. I'm not exaggerating!
If your as nuts for Chai as I am, or want to try something new, this is for you!
I got the original recipe from here. But I didn't have all the spices to follow the exact recipe and I don't make my own nut milk because my blender is not strong enough. So if you like things simpler like me, here is how I made it :)
1 tsp Chai spice mix (recipe below)
2 frozen bananas
1 cup milk substitute (I used rice)
2-3 Tbsp hemp hearts
1 Tbsp almond butter
Blend until smooth. Can reserve a bit of the tsp of chai spices and sprinkle it on top of your smoothie :)
Chai spice mix:
1 Tbsp ground (dried) ginger
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground cloves
2 1/2 Tbsp ground cardamom
2 tsp ground nutmeg
Put all ingredients in a resealable glass jar. Close lid and shake. Will keep for a very long time. You can also use this spice mix for so many things, sky is the limit!
I hope you enjoy!
