What is chai?
For many people in Asian countries like India, chai simply means tea. However, in the West, chai tea has become associated with a delightfully spicy drink that is also wildly popular. Known for its delicious blend of herbs and spices that lend to its unique flavor, chai has made a statement on the world stage.
Besides being oh-so-tasty, chai has numerous health benefits – from helping to improve digestion to alleviating nausea1. Because there’s no specific recipe for chai, this flavorful drink may be tweaked and adapted to suit your individual preferences, whether that be full-bodied and heavily spiced, smooth and sweet, or earthy and savory… it is all in the preparation!
Our chai smoothie is naturally sweetened with our Sugar-Free Maple Syrup to enhance the robustness of the spices, creating the spicy-sweet flavor you love. What’s more, the syrup is completely free from sugar and fat which makes this drink a much healthier alternative to the kind you’d buy at a coffee shop.
Be sure to top your smoothie with a dusting of extra cinnamon – because why not?!
