MoodBooster Chai Smoothie

*If you have carb sensitivity or if you follow low carb diet, you might want to enjoy this smoothie on your high intensity training day. 

** This recipe yields one serving

This is a different kind of smoothie – perfect on colder days when you feel like being all cozy, and have cravings for something sweet, delicious, yet healthy and full of good nutrients.


2 tbsp MoodBooster Tea from Fairy Blends 

1 ripe banana

4 tbsp sliced almonds

1 date

1 cup boiling water



  1. Pour the boiling water over the 2 tbsp of MoodBooster tea and let it steep for about 4 minutes. The dry apples in the tea should be re-hydrated and soft.
  2. Pour the cup with the rehydrated tea into the high speed / high performance blender together with the rest of the ingredients and blend until completely smooth.
  3. Pour into a tea cup and garnish with cinnamon stick. You can also sprinkle some cinnamon on top.

Tip: It’s really important you use a high speed blender that can turn even the hard pieces of lemon grass in the tea into a smoothie. I use Vitamix for most of my recipes, but this one I made in my new blender from Cleanblend  which is more affordable and can do the job. I highly recommend it.

    What is in the smoothie that gives it the carbs? The banana?
    Thank you!

    interesting idea, I wouldn’t have thought to leave the herbal mix in there and blend it.
