Vanilla – Chai Smoothie

Chai Tea  is usually enjoyed as a hot, iced or frappe latte, but it is not very usual to see it in shakes or smoothies. So why not try that for a change?

Today we are going to combine it with fruit to have a delicious, healthy and very satisfying morning smoothie. A rich combination of sweet and spicy (the good kind of spicy) flavors, filled with the antioxidant, digestive and energy boosting properties of the chai tea plus banana, which is a great source of potassium.

 

 

This smoothie also fits as a great breakfast or snack in a balanced and healthy diet (it is the right portion to keep yourself energized during the morning) like The Balanced Meal Plan, which is a great program wether you are trying to loose some extra weight or just keep yourself fit and healthy.
