This time of year, autumnal spices creep into almost everything we eat. I recently read about how to make your own chai spice and this smoothie is the perfect place to use it. It adds just the right kick to the smooth, light combination of banana and almond milk!
I found a variety of different combinations you can use to make chai spice, so you can definitely experiment with this and adjust it to your liking. Here’s what I used:
Homemade Chai Spice
2 tsp ground cardamom
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp ground cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp ground all spice
Mix them all together and store in a mason jar to reuse whenever you want! This would be an amazing addition to your coffee in the morning :).
Banana Chai Smoothie
Makes 1 smoothie
1 cup almond milk
1 tbsp chai spice (add more or less, depending on your taste!)
1 cup ice cubes
Add all ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth. Top with a little bit of nutmeg or cinnamon!
