Recipe: Frozen Chai Latte Smoothie with Vita Coco #CocoCreations

Frozen chai latte smoothie title

In the colder months there’s one thing I always look forward to: Chai Lattes! I just love chai spices, for me they are integral to autumn, winter and Christmas as they are so warming. When Vita Coco challenged me to post a favourite juice or smoothie recipe for their #CocoCreations challenge I immediately thought of green smoothies, however, this is much more seasonal and fun and is certainly my favourite smoothie of the moment!

In recent months I’ve started to go off smoothies and juices when the weather is cooler as I find that works better of my body, however this is an exception! It has a rich, thick almost milk shake like consistency and decadent taste, with no sugar or hidden nasties!

It’s thick and creamy consistency reminds me of a frothy chai latte just in frozen form! The recipe is also simple and straight forward in what I hope is my typical style, with just 6 ingredients. Vita Coco coconut water is super hydrating, the banana adds some fast release energy and natural sweetness and the full fat tinned coconut milk gives a good dose of healthy fats.

    My favourite way to drink coconut water is straight from the fridge after a run. It just taste phenomenal and it’s a perfect way to for me to recover quickly after running. Way more exciting than plain water as well.
    Love the sound of the latte, very Christmasssy and delicious!

      I used to have some on shorter hotter runs while I was running instead of those fuel drinks, much more tasty!

    That sounds very refreshing- I like coconut water on a hot day as it is so thirst quenching, and I love chai lattes hen it is cold, the cinnamon and other spices are so warming.
