About a month ago- after getting my haircut at the Scott Miller- I felt enticed to check out the new Breathe Yoga right next door. I was psyched when I figured out I would actually be able to order a smoothie off of their lengthy menu that I had been hearing such great things about. They carry every non-dairy milk alternative that a girl could long for. Like many- I have a weakness for chai- so I ordered a Chai smoothie with almond milk and it was bliss. The kicker- it contained banana. I normally HATE hate hate bananas in smoothies. I don’t know why, just something about them really offends my taste buds.

Me the Banana in smoothies hating girl- spent the last 3 weeks craving that well.. Banana Chai Smoothie. So as I do with any other food I love- I made it myself.

Directions are as with any smoothie- throw everything into the blender. Sweeten it to your liking- I never like to give a specific amount for this as everyone has their own preference. The spices can be adjusted too. Though be careful with the cardamon, ginger and cloves. They are wonderful- but can quickly take over flavor if used in excess.

This recipe will make 16oz.
