Vegan + Delicious Chai Shake
There's no doubt about it, fall is Chai season! To start off October strong, we decided to take our spicy Masala Chai to the next level and make a vegan, superfood-powered shake using Chai as a base. And let us tell you, it was seriously delicious.
We included superfoods such as MCT Oil, Maca Root Powder, and Cinnamon in addition to all the healthy spices already in our Masala Chai blend to really up-level this smoothie. If you want to turbocharge your day without coffee, then this is the shake for you to try.
Chai Shake Health Benefits
MCT Oil is known to help facilitate sustained energy and focus. Medium-chain tryglicerides help improve endurance, boost memory function, and can inhibit the appetite, so they're a perfect addition to a morning smoothie designed to get you going.
Cinnamon is an all-around healing herb. It contains antioxidants in addition to its anti-inflammatory properties. Cinnamon is even helpful in lowering blood sugar levels, so when added to this shake, you needn't be concerned about a blood sugar spike.
Maca Root Powder is made from an ancient Incan root, prized for its ability to improve endurance and enhance energy. It has even been thought to improve one's mood.
When blended with our signature Masala Chai, which contains a blend of spices and whole black tea leaves, these ingredients create a powerful elixir sure to get you through even the toughest morning.
