Get Chai Life (Tea) Smoothie

As tea lovers, we look for ways to experiment and incorporate tea into every meal. Chai is one of those robust and distinguished flavors that is perfect on its own or with milk. So, if you love chai or chai lattes, you will love this smoothie! It's the perfect combination of creamy and spice, not to mention all of the health benefits in one cup.

We love this homemade recipe because many chai products in grocery stores and cafes have tons of sugar and additives. Our blend is made of organic ingredients and is sugar-free. Which means you can control the type of sugar and the amount. You can experience the fantastic flavors of chai and all of the incredible health benefits.


 

Here are some of the benefits that are backed by science: 

      • Studies have shown that one of the main ingredients in chai, cinnamon, may help lower blood pressure (1). 
      • Drinking four or more cups of black tea may slightly reduce blood pressure levels (2). 
      • Ginger, black pepper, cinnamon, and clovers are ingredients in chai that may reduce nausea, bacterial infections, and proper digestion support (3). 
      • Several components may promote unwanted weight gain or weight loss (4). 

Also, these muffins go perfect with Simple Mills Gluten-Free Banana
