Happy Wednesday, everyone!

First off, just wanted to thank you for the kind comments and emails (and remedy suggestions!) you sent me after Monday’s post. So helpful and encouraging — thank you! I’ve been on pretty much a liquid diet for four days, but finally think that things are turning and corner and I’m on the mend. Whew, which makes me thankful for many reasons, not the least of which is the fact that chips and salsa are an absolutely essential food group for me. Coming soon, I hope.

That said, I’ve been tapping into my arsenal of gentle soups and smoothie recipes this week. And as much as I love chewing, I forget how much I really do love a good protein smoothie cup of chai. But then I realized, why choose when you can have both?!

Seriously, I make matcha lattes and smoothies all the time. But it wasn’t until last week that I realized I could just as easily empty a chai tea bag out into my blender as well! Brilliant! And also, absolutely delicious, especially when paired with this easy, protein-packed banana smoothie base.

It’s a breakfast match made in heaven. ♥

The ingredients for this one are quite simple, and also happen to be naturally gluten-free as well. (Feel free to nix the yogurt and add in a little more almond milk, too, if you’d like it to be vegan.) Just gather up:

  • fresh bananas (then peel, slice and freeze them)
  • Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk (my fav rich and creamy almondmilk)
  • plain non-fat Greek yogurt
  • chai tea leaves (I just emptied out a tea bag or two)
  • vanilla extract
  • ground cinnamon
  • plus a little maple syrup, if you’d like an even sweeter smoothie (I didn’t think it needed it)

…and then this beauty will be yours to enjoy.

It’s naturally wonderful sweet and rich, the Greek yogurt gives it a mega boost of protein, and the chai and other seasonings give it a warm hint of spice that I absolutely loved. Just what the doctor ordered.

Enjoy!
