Chai is one of my favourite spice blends and I get pretty excited once fall hits, because chai is everywhere! Including my kitchen, and this spicy chai smoothie.
 
I made my own homemade chai spice mix which is what I use to throw into this super easy, immune-boosting, anti-bacterial smoothie. It’s the perfect comforting drink for cold & flu season, and it only requires a few ingredients!

Spicy Chai Smoothie

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut or nut milk
  • 2 tsp chai spice mix
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne (pinch)
  • 3 ice cubes, or 1 frozen banana

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to blender and blend until smooth.

  2. Top with a sprinkle of extra cayenne if desired.

  3. *Cayenne is optional, but great for sinus congestion!

This Spicy Chai Smoothie is more than just delicious. Cloves provide powerful antimicrobial activity, and cinnamon helps balance our blood sugar
 
Alongside the antibacterial properties of the chai spices, cayenne helps during cold and flu season by aiding sinus congestion. Plus, it’s great for warming you up on a chilly day!
