New Low Carb Chai Latte Smoothie Recipes
Elevate your low carb smoothies with the flavors of chai.
Low carb smoothies are a convenient and portable way to get a quick and easy boost of nutrients and energy when you don’t have the time to prepare an entire meal, let alone sit down and eat it. You can drink your low carb smoothie anywhere: on your commute, at your desk or during school drop-off. When you make your own smoothie, you’re in control of the quality of the ingredients, and you can ensure that it’s lower in sugar and carbs than many alternatives.

Chai, which translates to “tea” in Hindi, is black tea typically infused with the flavors of cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and ginger.
