I know what you’re thinking. “Where the HELL has she been????” Well, in the span of the last month me and my little divas have all battled the flu monster–and won! Yay! So now that we are on the mend I am going to get back to the business of numminess! Look for a vid this weekend (I hope by speaking this it will motivate it to actually happen).
For this week’s shake recipe, I present to you a riff on a favorite Starbucks concoction. A cold chai tea latte. As many of you know, chai is a smooth, creamy, aromatic tea from India. I love, love, love me some Chai. It is comfort in a cup.
This shake uses my new favorite bottle of Davinci–Chai Concentrate! This concentrate is easy to use. It can be mixed into hot or cold drinks and the best thing for me is that it requires no extra sweetening to “make it do what it do.” From me that is saying something.
Chai Latte Protein Shake
8 oz. skim milk
1 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tbsp butterscotch pudding mix
2 tbsp Chai Concentrate
Put all ingredients in a blender and whiz it. If you like a milkshake-type shake add enough ice to break the surface of the liquid and whiz again. WARNING: if you do this it will yield a BIG shake. You might want to halve the recipe or find a friend to share the love with! If you are not using ice, cut the chai concentrate in half, a little goes a loooooong way!
Pour it in a pretty glass. Top with fat free whipped cream. Dust with cinnamon to make it look purdy and SLURP!
This my breakfast this morning and…mmmmmmmm (slurp, slurp)….I’m sorry…what were we talking about again?
