Strawberry Has No Place in Chai
Last weekend, I had the opportunity to meet the blogger behind Vegan Grub at Juliano's Raw for shakes. Since I'd already had their chocolate shake twice, I thought I'd break out of my shell and have something different. It didn't take much contemplation to decide on the Chai smoothie with agave in lieu of honey (from their menu: fruit with cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and cardamom). Now, I love chai, but this smoothie tasted absolutely nothing like chai. It tasted like a strawberry shake and I thought it was satisfactory, but nothing special. The chocolate shake, one the other hand, is spectacular! Oh, well, I guess we all have to go out on a limb and try something new every once in a while, right?
