This is a smoothie that every tea-lover would have dreamed of, but never tried! Well, we tried it for you and it turned out great – so now it’s your turn.
In this unique creation, tea and curds are blended together with an aromatic spice infusion and a hint of vanilla and nutmeg, to make a refreshing smoothie that has a strong tinge of tea.
The Spiced Chai Smoothie gets its flavour from a special infusion of honey and whole spices. It is important to allow this mixture to cook for the specified time, in order to get a rich aroma and flavour. It is also essential to let the tea bags to infuse in the spiced water for a whole five minutes – if it is not properly infused, you will not get a deep tea flavour in the smoothie.
