Creamy Butternut Chai Matcha Smoothie Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 oz baby spinach
  • 4 oz butternut squash
  • 1 banana - peeled
  • 1 tsp matcha tea
  • 1/2 tsp chai spice
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 cup ice

If you’re looking for an energizing snack with all the flavors of the holiday season, this is it! Thanks to the amino acid L-Theanine, matcha tea (which is made from ground green tea leaves) is the perfect way to stay focused and calm. Butternut squash provides beta carotene and fiber, as well as a delicately sweet smoothie base, and the combination of a banana, almond milk, and chai spices creates the perfect chai latte effect. Top it off with a dash of vitamins A, C, E and K from spinach, and you have all the flavor of a delicious milkshake with a nice nutritional punch.
