The Rawtarian's ThoughtsBy The Rawtarian
I've been enjoying this raw chai smoothie often over the past few weeks as a dessert, almost as a replacement for a sweet coffee or hot cocoa after dinner.
If you have cardamom in your spice cupboard, it really adds an interesting, surprising chai-esque taste. But if you don't have it, no worries - you can omit it and just use the cinnamon.
I don't often add coconut to my smoothies, but it provides added richness, which is nice and turns it into more of a dessert smoothie. (If you can't do coconut, feel free to omit and cut the water down a little to compensate.)
