I must admit that that I've slipped from my green smoothie routine during this coldish and rainy California winter. In the mornings when I wake up I want something warm to drink so first thing I do is boil a big pot of water and then have my half glass of warm lemon water and then have 2 huge cups of herbal tea mixed with cinnamon, cayenne, turmeric and chia. So smoothies have become more of a snack instead of breakfast for me. Throwing in some warming spices makes it more interesting so here's a super simple chai spiced smoothie base. You can always add a handful of greens to make it more nutritious. Sprinkle raw cacao nibs on top for fun crunch!
