So true about eating nutrient dense foods! I don’t track my calories anymore, but I did for a while. I used http://www.nutridiary.com

This drink looks yummy. I am going to have to try it too. I stopped drinking coffee but I still have one from time to time just pure habit. But this would be much better.

    Megan

    I still have a cup of coffee every now and then, too. I love the smell and flavor– just hate the way it usually makes me feel after. ๐Ÿ™

    Luckily, this Chai latte totally hits the spot! Hope you like it!

      Hi Megan!
      I work for a locally-owned coffee shop here in Tucson, AZ. I wanted to offer some info on coffee, if you’re noticing feeling jittery and horrible after drinking some coffee, find out what kind of beans were used. Most coffee is made with robusta beans, they grow big fast, and are able to withstand lots of pesticides. Robusta beans have a high caffeine content, and are chemical-laden. Look for a coffee shop that buys arabica beans, preferably organic. Our coffee shop roasts their own. I was never able to drink coffee until I tried organic 100% arabica coffee. If its roasted correctly (roasted to origin), you won’t need to add anything to it.

      Just an FYI for you and your followers. Hope I helped shed some light on why some people think coffee makes them jittery!

awww I LOVE roastaroma, I’m sad you didn’t like it! Did you put stevia in it? I think its delicious with stevia and almond milk. This recipe sounds fantastic too though!

    Megan

    No, I didn’t try stevia or almond milk in it. I always preferred my coffee “black” so I’m not used to adding anything to it! Honestly, I could barely get past the smell of the Roastaroma… it’s just not my taste, I guess.

    I hear Teeccino is good, but have you tried it? Does it taste anything like this one? That might be on my “to try” list next!

      Rande @ Vegetable Centric Kitchen

      I like my coffee black too but I think the Roastaroma isn’t bold or hearty enough to be drunk alone, at least for me. I do love Teeceeno as well but its a little spendy, if you’re going to try it I think the Vanilla Nut one is much tastier than the original!

Megan

Did you put your green juice into the calorie counter? It’s interesting to know how many calories, vitamins and minerals they have.

Heather

I was doing a google search on this tonight and decided to finish at your website – you never seem to let me down!! I’ve been sick the past couple days and am going to try to heat this up on the stove — I’ll let you know how it goes ๐Ÿ™‚

    Megan

    Oh, sorry to hear you’re sick! Hope it’s delicious as a warm drink, too!

    (You could also leave the avocado out, for an easier warm chai latte!)

I can’t track calories… it leads to trouble!!! If I track I obsess about if my 1/2 cup of lettuce was really a 1/2 cup or did I pack it too tight or loose… Was it really more calories than the tracker said? Less? What if I’m eating more than I think? What if it’s less? This leads to me eating more processed, prepackaged foods because they say the calories on the side…

I start with the goal of eating 1200 calories but always come in under and that’s with me making my portions slightly under what I enter in the tracker. Then I somehow end up cutting calories for who knows what reason… but I also chronically worry that I’m not eating enough and that my body will go into starvation mode and refuse to lose weight. IT MAKES ME CRAZY!!! I’m sure many some of you can relate ๐Ÿ™‚

Currently, I am focused on health and making a true life change. I don’t want to track calories for the rest of my life so I’m not doing it now. I’ve blended many diet theories together and come up with a good plan that works for me. Its the Low Glycemic Detox for Women’s pH Miracle LOL… Maybe that title needs work ๐Ÿ™‚ From what I’ve read I think your on a similar plan.

I do write down what I make each day… no measurements just ingredients and thought on it. It helps me remember stuff I’ve liked so I can make it again ๐Ÿ™‚

I also love to use Roasted CHICOREE ROOT TEA. I dont really like the taste of green tea.The taste is similar to coffee.

Do you suppose a handful of spinach would overwhelm the chai latte taste?

    Megan

    Spinach usually blends into things very well, without adding much flavor. I’d give it a shot!

Jessica

Hi Megan,

I am looking for an alternative to both soy and almond milk as they don’t agree with me, I often have an upset stom,ach after consuming.
I have been resulting to regular milk but have always been unsure about it.

Any advice appreciated!

    Megan

    You can make homemade milk using seeds, such as hemp or sunflower, or you can try rice milk!

Nicholas

Planning a detox, and your blog has been incredibly helpful. It’s made me realized it isn’t going to be hard whatsoever. I’m rather excited now. Thank you Megan!

Brittni

I made this smoothie this morning and used So Delicious Coconut milk and thought it tasted like soap. I couldn’t even drink it, I threw it away. I am going to try again tomorrow with almond milk instead.

Cassi

I just made this with maple syrup (I don’t use Stevia) and it was amazing! Thanks for the recipe!

Diana

Hi there! I just made this smoothie for lunch and I wanted to tell you that it was absolutely delicious! I did add 1/2 a frozen banana to it because I had it left over from another smoothie day ๐Ÿ™‚ this is the 3rd recipe I have tried from Your website and all three were absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for sharing all of your recipes!

Penny

This was a satisfying and delicious way to quench a pumpkin pie craving! My 3 year old and 1 year old were fighting over the straw lol
I used the water, 2 tb raw honey and I didn’t have pumpkin pie spice, so 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and 1/2 tsp cloves.
Thank you!

Isabelle

Sounds delicious. But what makes it Green. Where is the Chai? And what makes it Latte?

Diane

the NuNaturals Stevia does have an aftertaste in this recipe as well as the Choc fudgsicles, where I subbed it instead of the maple syrup….do you think it’s the avocado/stevia combination? I spent a lot on the liquid NuNaturals Stevia and I’m disappointed in it.

Alex

This recipe is fantastic, and tastes surprisingly like a green chai latte, without any of the traditional ingredients. I used 1 cup of almond milk, and 1/2 cup of coconut milk, and added a small sprinkling of cinnamon. I will be making this recipe often.

I have struggled with an unhealthy relationship with food for 4 years now and it is scary to see and hear all of the negative things I have done to myself that, have ready and, could have a long term negative effect on my mind and body. I was recommended to this site in order to open my eyes to healthy fats, creative treats, and recipes that will improve my food knowledge and make me a healthier me….thanks for helping me on my journey…

Detox Smoothie Lover

Looks soo delicious! I have to try it this weekend. But I’am not sure if there is something like pumpkin pie spice in Germany…

Hope

Wow! The timing on this couldn’t have been more perfect (for me)! I came onto your website just now to search for the exact measurements in your green chai latte smoothie…and found this instead! I already had some greens in a smoothie this morning, so I’m excited to try this RIGHT NOW. ๐Ÿ™‚
