Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes:

If you like to experiment, feel free to change the recipe as you like, or, you could try some of my suggestions below:

  1. Boost With Protein: If you are not avoiding dairy, you can either use 1/2 cup of yogurt, or a scoop of protein powder to add more protein.
  2. Swap The Fruits: If you don’t mind bananas, you can swap the mango or berries for bananas. You can use different berries for example, or another tropical fruit.
  3. Add Some Greens: Throw a handful of spinach or kale for extra nutrients without impacting the taste!

What Type Of Chai Can I Use?

I personally used brewed chai tea from a teabag.

However, you can use some other types, such as:

  • Chai Powder.
  • Chai Syrup.
  • Chai Teabags.
  • Loose Leaf Chai Tea.

If using chai powder, use 1 teaspoon, as for the syrup, use one teaspoon too.

If using teabags or loose leaves, you will need to brew the tea in warm water.
