Establishing Habits for a Productive Life

Banana Chai Smoothie

After a long workout, I always look for something to cool me off without weighing me down.  I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect snack for a while, and I think I’ve finally found it.

This smoothie is packed with potassium to ease your sore muscles, calcium for your bones, carbs to reboost your energy level, and a unique spicy twist to keep your taste buds interested. Mix in some Vanilla Whey powder for an energy boost after an especially tough gym session, or throw in some extra ice cubes to chill out after your afternoon Bikram.  A twist on the traditional Banana Chai Smoothie, this recipe incorporates Trader Joe’s delicious “Spicy Chai Mix,” so you can still get that exotic Indian taste without a kettle!

Banana Chai Smoothie Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 1 large-sized banana
  • 1 scoop Trader Joe’s Spicy Chai Mix
  • 1 cup (8 oz) Almond Milk, Soymilk, or regular milk
  • 1/4 cup instant oatmeal
  • 2-3 ice cubes
  • 1 scoop Vanilla Whey Powder (optional)

Toss ingredients in a blender and mix until incorporated.  Pour into a glass and if you wish, top off with a dash of cinnamon! Now towel off that sweat, put your feet up, and enjoy!
