These chai smoothie bowls are a warming, healthy breakfast for the colder months. Vegan, gluten-free, and paleo, they’re satisfying and full of flavor.




  1. First, brew the tea. In a small saucepan, add the non-dairy milk and chai tea bag. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a very low simmer for 5-10 minutes. Once the tea is brewed, remove the tea bag and allow the milk to come to room temperature.
  2. Add the brewed non-dairy milk, frozen banana, dates, seed butter, protein powder (if using), vanilla extract, and pinch of salt in a high-speed blender and blend until smooth and creamy.

  3. Divide the smoothie between two bowls. Top with sliced banana, granola or seednola, extra seeds, and/or cinnamon, if desired.


Dates. The number of dates you use will depend on the sweetness of your protein powder and personal preference.

Nut-free? Easy. Try using a non-dairy milk like rice or oat milk. Instead of nut butter, use a seed butter, like this 88 Acres Vanilla Spice Sunflower Butter, and top with seeds and/or seednola, like this 88 Acres Chocolate & Sea Salt Seednola.
