This chai superfood smoothie tastes like a creamy chai latte! It’s filled with a hidden veggie, chai spices, almond butter, vanilla, hemp seeds, frozen banana, and dates! It makes a great breakfast, snack, or healthy dessert!
Raise your hand if you love chai! I’m definitely a chai lover, in all forms. I remember years ago having my first chai latte and being hooked. There’s something about the combination of spices and creaminess that is SO cozy.
To be honest, I didn’t even realize I had that many chai recipes on the blog! I do really love it.
This smoothie is so gosh darn good. It tastes like dessert and it has so much goodness in it! AND a hidden veggie..frozen cauliflower!
I was honestly a litttttle bit skeptical about the whole cauliflower and zucchini in smoothies trend when it first started, but I am always a fan of getting in extra veggies when I can, so I figured why not try it?
You honestly cannot taste a thing and it adds so much creaminess. Creaminess just like a frozen banana does. And we have both here. So it’s super extra creamy!
The other part of this smoothie that makes it superfood-y is the almond butter (yay for healthy fats!), hemp seeds (yay for more healthy fats and digestive benefits), cauliflower (yay for extra fiber and vitamin C), dates (they have lots of vitamins, minerals, and fiber), cinnamon (great for keeping stable blood sugar levels and it has lots of antioxidants too!, and last but not least, ginger (it’s super anti-inflammatory and also has antioxidants)!
So awesome, right?! I love when delicious things like this have so many benefits.
I’ve also refrigerated this and it keeps for a day or two in the fridge. I can’t tell you how many times I kept going in the fridge for sips.
All I want for breakfast now.
