Bolthouse Farms Chai Smoothie

19 Dec

We have a very strong love relationship with smoothies. They get us through French class, busy mornings, and any other excuse we find possible to make one. Since they are made quite frequently, we have to have a few options. This newest one we came across thanks to 50% off at Weis on the Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Cafe drink. We were mindlessly browsing when we came across this deal. With 7 grams of protein per serving we couldn’t turn it down. I’m so glad we didn’t! After returning home from the store we brainstormed what we could do with this juice. We came across a recipe from one of our favorite vegan blogs! Healthy. Happy. Life. Check her page out. She has some of the coolest recipes that are so unique and flavorful, and we haven’t tried something from her page that we did not like.

Basically, she had a recipe for a mixed berry smoothie. We tweaked it based on what ingredients we had available, and made our own tasty smoothie combination!

Makes Two Servings:
1 banana (it should be frozen, but thawed works too)
1.5 cups of Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai
1/2 cup frozen whole strawberries
1 cup of ice (more depending on thickness preferred)
Optional:Unsweetened coconut flakes and flax seed for topping

Directions:
Put banana, juice, strawberries, and ice in blender and purée until smooth.

Pour into cup, and add desired toppings!

No shame to admit we’ve made this smoothie 3 times already. A new favorite for sure. I can’t wait to try out another one of their products. Who knows what’ll be next. They have a hazelnut latte with 10 grams of protein, and a mango protein plus smoothie with 30 grams! They also have pre-made smoothies (perfect for roads trips) and a 50/50 berry juice that looks delicious. I don’t think you can go wrong with any choice here! If anyone has had any before and can recommend a favorite, please do! Opinions are always wonderful.
