Better yet, this chai latte protein shake recipe can be adjusted to your needs so you can have it for breakfast, dinner or even as a quick snack.
Before You Start
Before we get started on the list of things and ingredients you’ll need for this recipe you need to decide whether you’re going to use a homemade chai concentrate or you’re going to purchase one.
Convenience-wise, a store bought chai concentrate is the best idea. It’s easier to find and much more practical, as it’s already made.
If you’re particularly picky about what you eat, you’re interested in learning how to make things from scratch or you want to have your own personal blend then you should make your own homemade chai concentrate.
While it sounds hard it’s actually surprisingly easy and there’s no shortage of recipes that can help you with that.
Regardless of what you use, our chai latte protein shake recipe won’t change much so let’s get started!
For This Recipe You’ll Need…
- Protein Shake Scoop
- Measuring Cups
- 1 Scoop of Protein Powder (Vanilla works best, thanks to its taste, but you can probably get away with peanut)
- ½ cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk (You can use whole, regular milk if you want)
- ½ cup of Chai Tea
This recipe yields a single serving but adjusting the proportions is easy enough if you’re making more than one smoothie at the time.
The only true limit here is the size of your blender so keep that in mind when changing this recipe to serve more.
With that in mind, let’s get started!
Step 1.- Make the Chai
If you’re using a powdered chai concentrate, make sure to prepare the tea before you blend it with the ingredients.
If you’re using a homemade concentrate or you purchased a liquid chai, feel free to skip this step.
Step 2.- Mix Your Ingredients
Mix all your ingredients, except for the cinnamon, in the blender.
While the order doesn’t really matter, pouring your liquids before the protein powder is a great way of mixing the ingredients more thoroughly and keeping the protein from sticking to the sides of the blender.
Step 3.- Check The Consistency
Take a small sip from your shake to check the consistency.
If it’s too watery, add more ice and blend it again.
If it’s too thick, add more milk and blend once more.
Garnish with cinnamon before serving.
That’s it, that’s the recipe. Serve when ready and drink right away!
