There are a lot of smoothies being posted in the gluten-free blogosphere this month for Detox January. There are a lot of good recipes out there so check them out when you have a chance. I’m not in detox mode since I really had no indulging going on around the holidays. The posts have inspired me to go beyond my usual smoothie and get a little creative.
I love chai and have been adding a touch of garam masala to my smoothies for a little bit of a kick. So, when I decided to veer off a little I wound up doing a take on the Coconut Chai Smoothie. It turned out light both in texture and color. I was pleased enough to make it several times to go with my breakfast before work.
Green Chai Smoothie
Handful of spinach
1 tablespoon raw local honey
1 teaspoon (or more) garam masala
Coconut milk (I use So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk)
Add banana, spinach, honey and garam masala to your blender. Add coconut milk – I fill my blender to the mark just below the 500ml mark, the smoothie will fit perfectly in my glasses at that mark. Blend well, pour, and enjoy!
