Lately I have been on a chai kick. I love the flavor of chai so much, I wanted to make a smoothie recipe at home with the spices. I made my own chai spice mix that is super easy to make. It has a nice warm heat from all of the ground spices. You can use the chai spice mix in other types of smoothies and drinks and it’s great to have on hand.
