Mock Chai Latte Smoothie

Well, I’ve done it. I’ve created the most delicious smoothie in the world. It is what I call the Mock Chai Latte Smoothie – mock because there is no tea in at all, but the flavors are reminiscent of the delicious, spicy tea.


This smoothie contains mainly banana and papaya – if the papaya freaks you out, don’t worry; you can’t taste it. I personally loathe papaya, which is why when we got it in our Bountiful Basket a couple weeks ago I chopped it into cubes and froze it. It actually works pretty well in smoothies, and perfectly in this smoothie.

Now when I make smoothies, I normally use a little of this and a little of that, so excuse me for my approximations on the ingredients list. I hope you enjoy!
