Chai Breakfast Smoothie

Chai Smoothie ... A refreshing start to your day

I love Indian cuisine....sweet fragrant spices that warm up the kitchen, the belly, and the heart.

That's why I was so excited to come across a "Vanilla Chai Breakfast Shake" recipe by Chocolate Covered Katie.  I ran to my kitchen, threw everything in my blender, and devoured it... in 30 seconds! Then I sulked for not having savoured it slowly. So I made another one. :)

The next day I added the spice mix to my regular smoothie recipe....and was in love.  One year's still my favourite smoothie recipe!

I premix my spices in a jar to make about 10 servings. That way all I have to do is add a slightly rounded teaspoon. Easy Peasy!
