|Vanilla Almond Chai Green Smoothie|
I try to drink some type of green smoothie every day. They just make me feel like I’m doing something wonderful for my body and, you may not believe this, but if you get over the whole “green” thing, they taste amazing. I try to experiment with some of my favorite flavors to change up my smoothies. My Almond Coffee Green Smoothie is my absolute favorite and has been really popular on the blog. This chai smoothie is a new favorite. If you love the flavors of chai, you’ll recognize them at first sip! I promise…you will never, ever taste the spinach.
Vanilla Almond Chai Green Smoothie
5 – 6 ice cubes
2/3 C. unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1/8 C. whole raw almonds (12 – 18), optional
1/2 frozen banana
1 C. fresh spinach
1 packet of stevia
1/2 t. cinnamon
pinch of cardamom
pinch of cloves
pinch of nutmeg
a few cracks of black pepper
Combine all of the ingredients into a blender. Blend on high until smooth.
Serves 2 small servings or 1 large serving
- If you are using regular almond milk, add a teaspoon of vanilla extract
- You can double this recipe to make two large servings. When doubling the “pinches” use a scant 1/8 teaspoon.
- If you are looking for a strictly vegetable and fruit smoothie without any type of dairy or non-dairy milk product, you’ll love my Green Smoothie! It’s very fresh, fruity and citrusy!
