Whenever we have milk that needs to be used it always tends to end up in some kind of milkshake or hot chocolate experiment. You may have noticed recently that I am a little bit in love with Chai so I decided to try making a milkshake including three of my favourite ingredients. Chocolate. Chai. Banana.
This is just chocolatey enough with a hint of banana and a layer of warming spice. It makes enough for one larger glass and a smaller serving..perhaps for a little one?
You will need:
Approx 400ml of milk
2 tbsp Chai Latte powder ( I used Baru Spicy Chai Latte )
2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 large ripe Banana ( chopped)
Pop all ingredients into a blender and blitz until smooth. You can sweeten if you like but I find most chai powders are fairly sweet anyway.
Take this up a notch with some vanilla whipped cream on top and a dusting of cinnamon..or make it even more indulgent with a scoop of chocolate icecream thrown in to thicken it up.
Enjoy it straightaway with a few biscuits…of course.
*In order to test this recipe thoroughly I tried warming it up and drank it as a hot chocolate which was surprisingly tasty but I definitely prefer it as a shake.
