Spice up your protein shake with spiced tea! This simple smoothie recipe features the complex, fabulous fall flavors of chai tea. Sweet banana adds a delicious sweetness, while a drop of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon provide tons of taste without tons of calories. Paired with a vanilla Nutrisystem shake, you’ll get in your protein while sipping on this energizing Banana Chai Tea Smoothie.

To make this healthy drink, grab your blender and combine one cup of cooled chai tea, one banana, one serving of Nutrisystem Vanilla Shake Mix and one teaspoon of cinnamon. Add vanilla extract to taste, then throw in some crushed ice. Blend until the beverage becomes smooth and creamy. Feel free to add more crushed ice until it reaches your desired texture.
