Vanilla Chai Autumn Smoothie

As autumn slowly moves into winter, boosting our immunity and looking after ourselves is an important factor, as we head towards the colder months. This fragrant, exotic, spicy smoothie takes the best of the chai spices to create a creamy, indulgent breakfast or post-exercise rejuvenator. Add in a scoop of protein powder or 2 tablespoons of chia seeds for maximum benefit.

Chai spices provide many benefits: cardomom can help stimulate the mind and gives clarity, cinnamon is a 'winter hero' as it can be used to fight colds, flu and sore throats, cloves proove useful during the cold/flu season and vanilla aids digestion.

The simple chai is a delicious, warming drink in itself -perfect for this time of the year; just don't forget to add in the vanilla pod after you have extracted the seeds.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup/400ml water
  • 1/2 inch cinnamon stick
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 4 cloves
