Berry-ana Chai Smoothie

I really like to start my day with a smoothie, my favorite is a simple banana smoothie but today I decided to try something new! Even if it was a bit chilly.

Ingredients

Chai tea bag

1/2 cup milk (any kind you’d like… moo milk, soy milk, almond milk, etc.)

1/2 cup water

1 banana

1/4 cup blueberries

dash of cinnamon

sugar to taste

splash of vanilla extract

First, you need to heat up the milk and steep the chai in the hot milk. Once the tea has steeped for a few minutes, discard and place the chai milk tea in the freezer to cool down quickly for at least 10 minutes.

In a blender add the banana, blueberries, water and ice. Blend for a few seconds. Add the chai milk tea and the rest of the ingredients. Blend again. You can add more milk for a creamier result or more ice for a frosty-like drink.

Ta-da! A refreshing drink that’s tasty, healthy and waaay cheaper than buying a smoothie (or smoothie-like product loaded with tons of weird, unpronounceable ingredients) at some smoothie place or coffee shop.
