Chai Gingerbread Shake
Dr. Junger of Clean lends us a warm shake for winter detoxing.
1 cup warm brewed rooibos chai tea (easy to find)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
2 teaspoons ground ginger (or a tablespoon or two of fresh squeezed ginger juice)
1/2 cup almond or coconut milk
2 tablespoons almond butter
coconut nectar, raw honey or stevia to taste
optional: 1 scoop protein powder of your choice
1. Blend until smooth. Drink before it cools for optimal digestion and to warm you up.
Cardamom has some heat —a spicy herb that cools you down on hot summer days. This drink is perfectly light and refreshing, a great afternoon cooler. If you prefer a cocktail, add a splash of bourbon. The woody sweetness pairs well with the cardamom.
