Rose of The Clean Kitchen couldn't keep this recipe to herself, and now I can't either, seriosuly - it is soooo good!
Over the last few weeks, the smoothie craze has hit the food world, and they are whipping them up East, West, North and South. So it was Julie here decided to try her hands on one herself - I hadn't made smoothies in what seems like forever ago, and then this... Mmmmm...
The chai tea I used, was Yogi Yogi Chai curtesy of the almight Tchai Ovna (One of my favourite places on Earth!), brewed on almond milk and chilled for a couple of hours.
I am tempted to try it without cocoa next time, just to see what the flavours will be like then, but for now - chocolate, cause you know it's good for you! Make the tea the night before and you'll have this little number for breakfast in less than five minutes!
Yogi Chai Chocolate Smoothie
1 cup brewed milky chai tea, cooled for a couple of hours or overnight
2 chopped frozen bananas
1/3 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 tbsp maple syrup or other syrup (for vegan) or honey
- Add all the ingredients in a tall jug, and whizz with a stick blender, or use a blender until you have a silky smooth chocolate chai smoothie, sit back, take a deep breath, and enjoy....
Possibly the best tea ever!
Also, yesterday I was feeling like I should do something productive, and so it was I decided to get some seeds and plant some stuff!
Peas and spinach actually! I was a little puzzled when the woman in the shop asked if I was going to do some planting when I was buying the seeds, not quiiiite sure what else they would be good for, hah!
Bad puns all the way!
I hope you have had a good start to your week, any plans? I was going to go to the gym after work today, but it was pouring down so badly, and I got drenched, plus my umbrella broke, soooo I think I will just try and do some yoga in the flat instead *smiles* How did you start your Monday?
