Chai Mango Banana Smoothie

chai mango banana smoothie 01It’s Autumn already! Can you believe it? The last few weeks of July was very cold in Sydney, luckily, Mr Sunshine seemed to be happy coming out to met us most of the days. Lately, I’ve got this feeling of re-arranging my kitchen because things are just getting a little messy ever since I’ve moved into my new house (well, that being said – it’s 3 years ago) and I managed to dig out my “forgotten” blender. IK saw that blender and asked for a smoothie, well I made him a banana oreo thickshake before. We used to buy smoothies from juice outlets.

Anyway, the incident was … once I started blending for a smoothie with this forgooten blender, disaster happened! OH MY GOD! The blender leaked and smoothie … running everywhere and flying out of the cap lid.. It took me an hour to clean up the mess. EPIC FAIL! IK rushed to the electronic outlet and bought me a new blender.. PHEW~~ BEST HUBBY EVER! So here we go, TESTING.. TESTING.. TRIAL 2…

******ps: Smoothies are so great with nutrient and calcium. Yep! Mission possible…

So today I’ve decided to make a new smoothie. Initially, I didn’t think this will work, but I tend to like making random things with what you call “unrelated” ingredients. I’ve got myself some chai powder, Frozen mango and overripe banana. So there we go, perhaps it’s time to clean out my pantry.

It did turned out better than what I thought. I’m a big fan of chai, in fact I could have a chai latte everyday! So I think this smoothie is a great nutritious treat for me. At least it’s a much healthier and wholesome breakfast treat! I’ve also added some vanilla flavouring to give it a much infused taste, and funny enough, this has been our favourite smoothie so far! ¬†At least it’s out of ordinary from the ordinary :)

Tips:

  • Always put the honey, vanilla and chai powder last so they don’t get stuck at the bottom of the blender.
  • Smoothies are served best right away, don’t leave it too long in the room temperature as it thickens and flavour will be off.
  • If you use fresh mango, you will need to add a few more ice cubes or alternatively, place the fresh mango into the freezer before you make the smoothie.
