I love chai tea, and wanted to take that unique chai flavor and integrate it into other drinks. This Strawberry Chai Smoothie combines fresh seasonal strawberries, vegan cashew yogurt, nut milk and a combination of spices that create that yummy chai flavor. Light and fresh.
I love chia for all of the benefits that it offers…fiber, antioxidants and protein to name a few. I am always looking to create great new combinations with chia seeds.. Today, it is Chai Chia Berry Pudding. We already love chai when mixed with tea, so, why not include it in other recipes? The result is that the pudding is completely smooth, and goes down like silk.
