Some people drink coffee, others drink tea.  I’m a tea drinker.  Don’t get me wrong, I won’t pass up a killer cappuccino, but tea is my beverage of choice.  I fell in love with chai tea when I started working at the Tomato restaurant in Vancouver. The incredible ladies in the back would whip up the most amazing authentic chai tea, which we would sip all day long.  I swear that was half of the reason I stayed working there for so many years.

This smoothie combines the amazing taste of chai tea with healthy almond milk, almond butter, dates and banana.  I gave my two year old a sip and he had one word: ‘yum’.  I agree!  This smoothie serves two.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. almond butter
  • 10 ice cubes
  • 1 cup strong brewed chai tea, chilled (I used 2 tea bags)
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/8 tsp. cinnamon
  • dash each of nutmeg, cloves and allspice
  • 5 dates (without pits)
  • 1 frozen banana, cut into chunks

Directions:

Put everything in a blender and blend until frothy, smooth and perfect!
