coconut chai oat smoothie

coconut chai oat smoothie
Out of all the non dairy beverages out there, oat milk is totally new to me. I was taken back of amazing it tasted, truthfully I was a little apprehensive at first- oat milk? I had it stuck in my mind it was going to be gritty and grassy- boy was I wrong! Oat milk is quickly becoming a favorite - just a tad sweet and totally silky smooth, making it the perfect non dairy milk to add to my morning smoothies.

I absolutely love a good chai- specifically a hot chai latte. However, with warmer weather here to stay I needed a summer chai beverage. Let me introduce to you the coconut chai oat smoothie- refreshing, cold and sweet- the perfect smoothie to indulge in after a morning run or afternoon in the garden.

You can use fresh, flaked, shredded, sweetened or unsweetened coconut- what ever you prefer.If you have a high powered blender there is really no need to soak the dates, however if you do not soaking the dates will make your life much easier. Use your favorite instant chai blend, tea or spices. I used my instant chai tea {here}.

  1. This is perfect for any time of the day!

  2. I've never tried oat milk, but you make it sound so tasty! Plus, it's very cool that there aren't any added sweeteners. Often boxed non-dairy milks are sweeter than I'd prefer.

    My favorite summer drinks are fresh juices. I make a lot of cucumber/red bell pepper/tomato/celery juice, but any freshly squeezed vegetable juice is a hit.

  3. Great idea adding chai! I'd love to have this for breakfast.

  4. This looks delicious! Why didn't I know about oat milk or instant chai? Will be trying this ASAP.

  5. Any fruit smoothie will do for me!

  6. A smoothie with bananas and strawberries is always good.

  7. This appears to be a terrific smoothie, healthful and delicious!

  8. I have been leary of the oat milk too. I usually drink almond milk, but trying oat milk in a smoothie is a great idea. I am glad that you posted on it and let us know how good it is. I am going to buy some now and try it. thank you.

  9. I love a good pear and kale smoothie in the summer!!!

  10. Iced chai from starbucks used to be my favorite when I was little, so I can't wait to try this!

  11. Love smoothies, our newest favorite is chocolate,spinach, pb. We use mostly almond milk, would love to try the oat milk it sounds delicious :)

  12. A fabulous and delicious summer beverage I enjoy is mango lassi, which is also terrific the whole year round!

    Thank you for offering this giveaway opportunity to your readers.

  13. I made oat milk didn't turn out too well, it was kind of slimy. I am sure the kind you can buy in the store is much better! I'm a sucker for any kind of lemonade!

  14. Watermelon slushie made with watermelon, mint, lime and ice. Great giveaway! I buy the Pacific oat milk in bulk! :)

  15. I love strawberry banana smoothies during summer.

  16. I love coconut water blended with frozen watermelon. Very refreshing!

  17. This looks wonderful! I used to drink Oat milk a lot when I lived in Ireland as it was a cheaper non-dairy alternative but I totally forgot about it!

    This smoothie sounds wonderful :)

  18. My favorite summer smoothie lately has been more of a slushy, which I've made with frozen pineapple, celery, spinach, and water. I also love making cherry banana smoothies, and sometimes I actually add oats so I'd love to try making it with oat milk, too.

  19. I love tropical flavoured smoothies with pineapple, coconut, and banana... maybe a little mango. Makes it feel like I am on a beach somewhere.

  20. i have to try oat milk. i want to see if i can take the texture!:) i would give anything for a ripe non stringy mango to make into a yogurt smothie!
