Banana Chai Smoothie
This is my version of something I had at a coffee shop in town. You could make this really sweet or less so depending on if you are looking for a healthy breakfast/snack, or if you're wanting a tasty treat. Using frozen fruit in place of ice makes smoothies much creamier- especially banana! Plus who doesn't end up with brown bananas that no one wants to eat?
6 oz brewed chai tea, chilled
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup greek yogurt- plain
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs honey
Blend together- add ice if you want it thicker.
If you used vanilla yogurt you can skip the honey and vanilla.
Vanilla carnation instant breakfast would add more protein and you could also skip the honey and vanilla.
Nonfat dry milk powder is a great protein source to add to smoothies without the cost of health food/supplement store protein powders.
