This raspberry chai latte smoothie bowl is pure awesomeness

Rasperry chai latte smoothie bowl

I like when experimentation goes well! The inspiration for this smoothie bowl came from Instagram. I challenged myself (because I’m annoying that way) to make a smoothie that I saw posted from a friend I follow. It looked amazing and she had a chai latte with it, so I thought I’d combine the two! The one she posted was pink and blue, but I didn’t have enough blueberries to add the two colors.

I’ve made a vanilla chai smoothie bowl before and loved it. This one is a little creamier, especially if you make the version that is not vegan. However, I have no idea how that one tastes since I can’t have dairy. I just made up this recipe, so if anyone tries the non-vegan version, please let me know what it needs!

Some of the health benefits include supporting brain and heart health, digestion, and weight and type 2 diabetes management.

Have a wonderful day!
