How to esplain the banana chai smoothie?
I’m a smoothie girl, but in general I’m a 3-ingredient fruity, yogurty, juicy kind of smoothie girl (unless, of course, you can put some chocolate in it. Then I’m that kind of smoothie girl.)
But I’m not a complicated, spice-putting kind of smoothie girl. Until now, I mean. Until. Now.
I love a good chai latte in the fall just as much as the next person (wait, are there people who don’t love chai lattes in the fall? I love them more than those people.). But I’m liking the chai mix used in things other than lattes as well.
These are such good morning smoothies. Bananas and yogurt to give you some protein and stick to your ribs. Chai to taste all yummy. But the kids have been making them for after-school snacks as well because they are ravenous beasts whose hunger can never be sated. You think I’m being dramatic, when really I’m just truth-tellin’. One of the kids comes home and has a whole extra meal at 3:30pm. If there’s some sort of all-inclusive meal plan at the college he goes to in a few years, I’m pretty sure we’re gonna come out ahead
But these smoothies, tho. Easy to make, and the kids get to play with a noisy, messy blender. What’s not to love?
- 2 c milk
- 3 c ice
- 1 banana
- 2/3 c Greek yogurt
- 5 Tb Chai Latte Mix
- Combine all ingredients in a blender.
- Pulse until smooth.
- Serve with sliced bananas on top.
For more easy breakfasts and snacks, try one of these:
(and as a sidenote, I got this smoothie maker for Christmas and so far I love it. If you make a lot of smoothies, and just want enough for one person, this puppy is the way to go.)
