Chocolate Chai-Spiced Green Smoothie

Posted by on Nov 4, 2013 in Recipes | 0 comments

A couple of weeks ago when I had an open can of pumpkin purée I needed to use I tried my hand at a pumpkin chai-spiced smoothie. It was good, but I was lacking at least two of the key ingredients among the chai spices and so it didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted it to.  Next time I open a can of pumpkin purée (which will no doubt be soon), I’ll try it again. 

But, in the interim, I picked up the missing chai spices and tried my hand at a chocolate chai-spiced green smoothie.  And wow, it was better than I ever imagined it could be.

There are a lot of ingredients in this smoothie, most of them spices. But don’t let that turn you off. Believe me when I say, it’s worth it. Oh yes, it is.
