Vanilla Chai Smoothie

1 cup brewed chai tea, chilled
1 ripe banana, peeled and frozen
1 scoop Plantfusion Vanilla Chai Complete Organic Protein
1/2 cup plant-based milk of your choice (adjust for desired consistency)

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for sweetness)
Ice cubes (optional)


Brew Chai Tea: (skip step if using store bought)
Prepare a cup of chai tea and allow it to cool completely. You can brew a strong cup for a more robust flavor. Once cooled, refrigerate the chai tea until you're ready to use it in the smoothie.

Blend the Base:
In a blender, combine the chilled chai tea, frozen banana, Greek yogurt, almond milk, vanilla extract, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, and nutmeg. If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, add honey or maple syrup to taste. Blend until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

Serve and Enjoy:
Pour the Vanilla Chai Smoothie into your favorite glass. Garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a cinnamon stick for a festive touch. Sip and savor the warm, comforting flavors of fall.
