Chocolate Chai Smoothie.

Tea or smoothie? Sometimes it's hard to decide if I want a steamy coconut milk chai latte or a cold rush of cacao and banana to start my day. Especially with confusing weather patterns here in Philly. It's like spring outside. To update my chocolate maca smoothie I decided to spice it up with strongly steeped chai. I made this the night before. The chai flavor really came through, but remember to make it strong!

Chocolate Chai Smoothie

3/4 cup almond milk
1/2 cup strongly steeped chai (in hot water or in heated almond milk), I let it steep for 10 minutes, or you can also use 2 bags instead of 1.
1 banana, frozen in chunks
1 tbsp cacao powder
1/2 tbsp maca
1/2 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
Dash of sea salt, cinnamon

Blend and sip. Makes 1 serving

My current favorite chai is the Hazelnut Chai by Zhena's Gypsy Tea. Addicted!

In case you have not had enough treats yet this month...Here's a holiday candy-cane-died Magic Bar from Sweet Freedom Bakery that I picked up yesterday. Incredible, and there's my chocolate for the day.

Chocolate and chai is one of the best pair-ups ever - love this idea. I haven't had a smoothie or chai tea for a long time, and your post totally reminded me of how much I love both! I've never used maca before, though.
