Zenberry Vanilla Chai is a seasonal offering only available in autumn and winter. Ours is based on the 5000 yr old Indian tea recipe from ayurveda known as masala chai. Our goal was to bring the incredible power of spices to a convenient smoothie with an amazing flavor. To do this we refused to use cheap chai flavorings like so many others on the market and created our own custom spice blend with only real, organic, fair-trade spices. No other food on the planet has more antioxidants and nutrients than spices. Then we paired them with other superfoods like maca, mesquite, algae, sea vegetables, grasses, probiotics and enzymes, for one healthy, delicious smoothie. Best of all, the spices are warming and calming so may help you sleep if consumed before bed.
RAW – VEGAN – NON-GMO – ORGANIC – SOY-FREE – NO ADDED SUGAR
See how 2x New York State Road Race Champion, USA Cycling coach, and Zenberry co-founder, Shane Moran recovers from his workouts:
A synergy of raw organic pea and hemp protein. This fusion creates a unique, raw, plant-based protein with a complete amino acid profile which is high in branch chain amino acids (BCAAs). It is an easily digestible and nutrient-dense superfood base.
Pea Protein: A high fiber, low calorie, nutrient dense vegetarian SUPERFOOD, Peas are also a remarkable source of plant-based proteins and amino acids. Protein from peas satisfies all FAO essential amino acid requirements. The amino acids found in peas include Lysine, Arginine, Glutamine, Leucine, Isoleucine & Valine (Branched Chain Amino Acids – BCAAs)
Hemp Protein: Hemp seed is a complete protein source and the only food capable of sustaining life in the absence of other foods. It has a high concentration of omegs 3 and omega 6 fatty acids in the favorable 1:3 ratio. Hemp protein is absorbed faster than any other plant-based protein.
No other food on earth contains more power than spices, gram for gram. We refuse to use cheap chai flavorings like so many other companies and instead created a custom organic, fair-trade spice blend preserving all of the power and nutrition of these gifts from nature.

For endurance and energy we added raw organic maca root powder. Maca is a member of the cruciferous family of plants. It is a distant relative of the common radish. It is grown high in the Andes between 11,000 and 14,000ft and its nutritional qualities come from having to survive in such a harsh environment. Maca’s reputation as a powerful strength and stamina enhancer as well as libido-enhancing food-herb stretches back into prehistory. Maca, like goji berries and ginseng, is a powerful adaptogen, which means it has the ability to balance and stabilize the body’s systems (cardiovascular system, nervous system, musculature, lymphatic system, etc.). Rich in calcium, magnesium,phosphorous, potassium, sulfur and iron, and containing trace minerals, such as zinc, copper, selenium, manganese and silica.
A popular fruit grown in the Andes. It has a rich, sweet, maple flavor (it is the #1 ice cream flavor in Peru) and is a great source of fiber, beta carotene, iron and niacin (B3). We add this to help balance the flavor of our mix while still adding nutrients.
Mesquite powder comes from grinding the ripe seed pods of the mesquite tree into a fine powder. It was a food staple of Native Americans who lived in the desert regions of North America. High in protein, a good course of calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. It is also rich in the amino acid lysine. Mesquite has a sweet, rich molasses like flavor with a hint of caramel.
We all know that vegetables, especially leafy greens, are nutritional powerhouses and we should be eating more of them. This is easier said than done, though, right? Now it’s easy. We selected the most powerful vegetables & grasses for Zenberry Green but don’t worry, it still tastes like chocolate! Hooray!
