Chai Banana Smoothies

I don’t know what to say about these chai banana smoothies, other than stop reading this post, get in your kitchen and start making them! I’m not kidding. We had these for breakfast this morning and as I write this post, I’ve already got the tea steeping for another batch of them. These smoothies taste just like a chai milkshake, but they’re healthy!  I love the sweet and spicy taste of chai tea, and this frozen creamy concoction is no different. My smoothie wasn’t very thick (we thought it was perfect!), but if you want yours a little thicker, I’d cut down on the milk or, if you don’t mind extra banana flavor, add another banana to the blender.  As for me, I’m busy filling my freezer with chai ice cubes and I’ll be making this creamy treat as often as possible.
