Spicy Chai Banana Smoothie:
This is the perfect autumn smoothie – and using these herbs adds loads of flavour, without the need for lots of sweet fruit. You could leave out the banana and nut butter, and use the rest of the ingredients to make a great bedtime drink!
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
1 small banana
2 ice cubes
1 teaspoon smooth almond or peanut butter
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1 cardamom pod
½ teaspoon (optional)
Method: put everything into a blender such as a Nutri bullet/Vitamix and blend well. If you don’t have a powerful blender, leave out the cardamom pod and clove, or use ground.
