Ⓥ Vegan Kitchen: Chai Tofu Smoothie! Ⓥ

Inspired by my brother's idea of adding chai tea to a smoothie! So you can thank him for this one. ;)  

Chai Smoothie
1 Chai Tea bag
3 pitted Dates, soaked
1/2 cup water
1 cup Vanilla Almond Milk, divided
1 Banana (ripe)
3/4 cup Tofu (silk/soft, to medium firm)
1 tsp Agave (optional)
1 tsp Maca Powder (optional)
Boil the 1/2 cup water. Place water in a small bowl (or measuring cup) with the Chai tea bag. Let seep for about 10 minutes. Add the Dates and 1/2 cup Almond Milk and let soak another 10-30 minutes (the longer you let it soak, the more flavour you'll get and the softer the dates become for easier blending). 
Remove the tea bag and squeeze it out. Add the dates and chai-soaked liquids (not the tea bag silly ;p) to a food processor or blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth. Add more or less Almond Milk and sweetener to your desired consistency and sweetness. 
Makes 1 large delicious smoothie. Enjoy!
