Cinnamon Chai Smoothie

Cinnamon Chai Smoothie

 

I hope you’ve enjoyed a magical February so far.

Here in Central Texas, our winter has been quite mild, and the sun has been peeking out and warming up the beautiful earth.

The last few days have been really temperate with highs in the 70s.  So, as a tribute to the early spring, I want to share a delicious smoothie with you this today.

If you’re a fan of those coffee drinks with flavorful spices, you’ll adore this healthier smoothie that’s higher in protein and lower in sugar than those iced flavored lattes.

Cinnamon Chai Smoothie

Don’t toss cold coffee or tea! You can use them for this recipe.  Store leftovers in your fridge for this great drink.
