This smoothie is a variation, or combination if you will, of the "Blueberry Maca Smoothie" and the previous "Chai Smoothie," and I do believe is my favourite between all three. ;)
*Note: I let the Chai tea seep for a good half hour at least and the flavour was magnificent!
1 Chai Tea Bag
5 pitted Dates
3/4 cup Blueberries
1 tsp Maca Powder
3/4 cup Almond Milk
2 heaped tsps Hemp Protein powder (optional)
Boil about 3/4 cup water. Place water in a 1-Cup measuring cup with the Chai tea bag and the Dates so that the water comes to about 3/4 cup. Let seep for about 15-20 minutes. Add a little bit of Almond milk so it fills the measuring cup to the top and let seep another 10-15 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 if desired) to your desired consistency.
Makes 1 delightful smoothie. Enjoy!
