Magnificent Mango-Chai Green Smoothie

chai spices

 

This smoothie is rather lush, feels almost naughty to drink and somewhat reminiscent of a mango lassi, quite possibly the oldest smoothie in the world!

 

 

 

1 cup frozen cubes of mango
1 banana
1.5 cups fresh almond milk
mild green such as baby bok choy, or wombok cabbage
1 heaped tsp of chai spice mix

Blend for 1-2 mins and serve for two

For the chai spices they need to be pure spices not a mix of spices and sugar/milk powder. Here is my recipe:

2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon ground cardamom
1 teaspoon ground star anise
½ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

Mix and store in a glass jar. Whole spices (except ginger) can be used
as well. Use equivalent amounts whole spices and grind in a mortar and
pestle or spice grinder

    Hi,

    I’m going to be trying this smoothie. How many baby bok choys or cabbage do I need? And what does 1 HEAPED tsp mean. Thank you

      Hi AJ, if you are new to green smoothies, just start with a little of the green and build up over time/as tolerated. I put in at least 100g of greens for a litre of smoothie, with a mild green like wombok/Chinese cabbage or bok choy (green stem not white stem), I often put in 150 to 200g as its milder than other greens. A heaped tsp refers to a ‘heaped teaspoon’ or ‘heaping teaspoon’ – probably equivalent to 1.5 teaspoons. Hope this helps.
