I recently had a TMJ (temporomandibular joint) device planted on the bottom of my teeth. Adjusting to this new instrument is taking time. Frankly, I am only a few days in as of writing this post. Fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies are my new best friends.
One morning I wanted something sweet and filling for breakfast. Looking around the kitchen, I found Garden of Life Vanilla Spiced Chai Protein Powder Packets*. Most protein powders taste better with a juice of some sort. Scanning the refrigerator, a few fruit based ideas came to mind. Apple juice sounded like a good blend, especially considering the autumn season mixed with chai. Pineapple seemed a little out there, but experimenting with whole foods never really hurt anyone. The result was delicious enough to share.

Vanilla Chai Pineapple Protein Drink
Sweet autumn flavors abound in this quick and easy to make protein drink.
- 1/2 c. water
- 1/3 c. apple juice
- 3-4 one inch chunks of pineapple
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 packet of Garden of Life Vanilla Spiced Chai Protein Powder packet
- In a high speed blender, add all ingredients except ice and blend on high until the consistency of juice forms and all pineapple chunks are liquefied.
- Add ice and incorporate until ice is fully blended to create a chilled drink. Pour and enjoy!
*Note: If drink is lying around once made too long without being consumed, may need to blend again for best results.
