Chai Spiced Banana Smoothie

  • Author: One Lovely Life
  • Yield: 2 1x


If your bananas just aren’t that ripe, you may need to add just a small drizzle of pure maple syrup to the mixture. I’ve made this over and over and only needed it once.



For chai spice mixture:

  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp cardamom
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • 1 tsp nutmeg

For smoothie:

  • 1 tsp chai spice mixture (above)
  • 2 frozen bananas, sliced
  • 11 1/2 cup milk (I like unsweetened almond milk)
  • 2 Tbsp almond butter or nut butter
  • 2 Tbsp ground flax seed or chia seeds (optional)


For the chai spice mixture:

  1. Combine all spices together in a small bowl. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

For the smoothie:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth, adding more almond milk as necessary. Drink immediately, or freeze in popsicle molds.
  2. Feel free to top with chopped nuts, cacao nibs, or any other goodies your heart desires.
