Recipe for Chai Oat Smoothie

One of my sons gave me a smoothie book last Christmas, "Supercharged Smoothies" by Mary Corpening Barber and Sara Corpening Whiteford, Chronicle Books, 2010. They have a recipe in the book for "Cha Cha Chai" - a chai and fruit blended drink. I thought it was a great idea to use chai in a smoothie so I made a simple one using homemade chai concentrate and oats. If you missed my post about adding oats to smoothies, here it is.

Homemade chai concentrate

Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 2 servings

  • 1 cup light vanilla soy milk
  • ½ cup chai concentrate
  • ¼ cup old fashioned oats, uncooked
  • ¼ cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • Ice for serving (optional)
  • Cinnamon stick for serving (optional)


  • Mix all ingredients except ice and cinnamon in a blender until frothy.
  • Serve garnished with cinnamon (optional).
  • Serve over ice if desired (optional).

If you are a fan of chai, give this a try-I think know you'll love it!
