Masala Chai Smoothie

 
Haus of Ojas Recipes | Masala Chai Smoothie Bowl.jpg

This smoothie bowl is a cozy blend of aromatic, warming flavors like vanilla, cashew, pear, and of course, chai. This smoothie is as good served cool as it is warmed up. That’s right, you can warm up any smoothie. In fall and winter, I rarely have smoothies, but if I do, I warm them up. It’s a good way to stay aligned with the season and it inspires me to be creative with warmth-evoking smoothie flavors.
