  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup frozen dark cherries
  • 2 tablespoons almond butter
  • 1 1/4 cup oat milk or milk or choice more depending on desired thickness
  • 1 teaspoon chai spice see notes
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • Cherries star anise pod, and oats for topping


  1. Add all of the ingredients to a high powered blender and blend until smooth. If smoothie seems too thick add more milk, a little at a time, until you reach your desired thickness (I prefer thicker smoothies).
  2. Pour into a glass and top with cherries, oats, and star anise pod (for a pretty affect).
  3. Sip and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

For the chai spices, you can by a chai spice blend or create your own. To create your own, simply combine 1 tablespoon cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ginger, 1 teaspoon cardamom, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 1/2 teaspoon cloves, and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
