Plant-Based Chai Tea and Oats Smoothie

Forgo your Chai tea latte and opt for this frozen smoothie blend instead.

This luscious smoothie contains masala chai tea, along with oats and dates to keep you full and satisfied until lunch. Masala chai is black tea blended with fragrant spices that include cardamom and ginger, among others. Using tea is a great way to add flavor and health benefits to smoothies. Studies indicate black tea, the base of masala chai, may help provide mental clarity and boost mood and work performance. Not a bad start to the day!

Dates contain a good amount of fiber which is helpful in sustaining energy. To make dates extra easy to blend, soak pitted date in brewed chai to soften. For an additional satiety boost, Bob's Red Mill rolled oats (54 grams of whole grains, 7 grams of fiber in a serving), provide a gluten-free addition with toasted flavor.
