What Is In The Chai Smoothie From Vitamix?

The Vitamix Chai smoothie ingredients are bananas, green tea, almond milk, oats, cinnamon, cloves, and ice.

Bananas

Bananas – Bananas are very healthy, readily available, and one of the least expensive fruits you can buy. They have relatively few calories, are rich in nutrients such as vitamin C and potassium, are full of potent antioxidants including flavonoids and animes, and are high in dietary fiber. Studies have shown that bananas can improve insulin sensitivity and may improve kidney health.

Green Tea

Green Tea – Green tea is widely claimed to be one of the most healthy drinks on the planet. It is loaded with powerful bioactive compounds, including polyphenols, the potent catechin epigallocatechin gallate, caffeine, and the amino acid L-theanine. Green tea improves brain function and protects against neurodegenerative diseases, increases fat burning, and reduces your risk of developing certain cancers, including breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and prostate cancer.

Almond Milk

Almond Milk – Almond milk is a popular nut-based milk replacement that is naturally lactose-free, dairy-free, and completely vegan. It has a surprisingly diverse set of nutrients, including significant amounts of vitamin D, vitamin E, and calcium. Almond milk is also a heart-healthy beverage for those interested in lowering their cholesterol.

Rolled Oats

Oats – Oats are one of the most healthy grains you can eat, being packed with fiber, loaded with essential nutrients, and 100% gluten-free. They are high in manganese, phosphorous, magnesium, copper, iron, zinc, folate, vitamin B1, and vitamin B5. Oats are widely used to lower cholesterol and prevent oxidization of LDL cholesterol.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon – Cinnamon is an ancient spice that has been used medicinally for thousands of years. It is high in powerful antioxidants, such as polyphenols, and is loaded with cinnamaldehyde, which also provides significant health benefits. Cinnamon is a known anti-inflammatory, helps reduce cholesterol, improves sensitivity to insulin, and aids in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

Cloves

Cloves – Cloves, a sweet and aromatic spice, are the flower buds of an evergreen tree and offer several health benefits. They are a rich in manganese and are loaded with the unique antioxidant eugenol, which is known to be 5 times more effective at fighting free radicals than vitamin E. Cloves are also known for their ability to promote liver health and for their ability to help stabilize blood sugar levels in diabetics.

Ingredients

Instructions

    1. Place bananas, green tea, almond milk, oats, cinnamon, cloves, and ice into a Vitamix blender and secure the lid.
    2. Start the blender on its lowest speed and steadily ramp up to its highest speed. This will reduce wear and tear on the motor and blades, facilitate a more consistent blend, and help prevent food splatter onto the lid and sides.
    3. Blend for approximately 30 seconds or until a smooth consistency is achieved.
    4. Pour into a glass for immediate refreshment or place in the refrigerator in an airtight container to enjoy later.

Notes

  1. For ease of use, we recommend peeling and slicing a number of bananas, putting them in a freezer bag, and storing them in your freezer for quick access.
  2. If you don't have frozen fruit, or simply prefer to use fresh fruit (we totally get that), we recommend adding 1/2 cup of ice to chill your smoothie and give it a pleasing icy texture.
