Chai Spice Mix + Chai Spice Almond Coconut Smoothies



Oh how I love Pinterest.  I’m amazed by the things people come up with, and the awesomeness I find there.  I found a chai smoothie recipe and started drooling right away.  I pinned it to my smoothies board and made it the next day!


This smoothie is so satisfying.  You would never know you are getting great nutrients and healthy fats.  It is sugar free, but perfectly sweetened with the dates & coconut.  The almond butter and coconut oil are great fats that are good for you, and spices are a great way to get nutrients into the body.  I love that this recipe makes a sort of chai spic mixture, which is enough to make several chai spice smoothies!


Chai Spice Mix


 I think it would be great stirred into hot almond milk for a nice, comforting hot drink, too!  

Chai Spice Mix
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cardamom
1 tsp cloves
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp ground ginger (I used fresh 1/2 inch piece, grated)
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp allspice (I had berries..had to crush mine)
1/2 tsp turmeric

Mix together and store in a small mason jar.
