It’s simply made with almond milk, oats, chia seeds, spices and molasses to make a healthy breakfast that tastes like a favourite Christmas cookie.

This smoothie is low GI, good for lowering cholesterol, high in vitamins and minerals (including iron, magnesium and calcium), is a good source of omega 3 and is only 150 calories per glass.
I think kids would also really like this smoothie as it tastes more like a treat than a healthy breakfast and is a good way to get them to eat something healthy in the mornings.

Sounds awesome, love a smoothie without the dreaded/yucky banana in it.
Haha! So hard to find banana free smoothies sometimes.
Allspice contains the same thing as mixed spice here in the states….
Hi just wondering if you can swap out the chai seed for something else,
Hi Suzie, the chia seed is what helps thicken the smoothie, it would be more like a thin shake without it but I’m sure it would still taste nice. You could also try flaxseed instead. hope that helps!
What is the mixed spice? Is it a combination of spices that I can make? Can’t wait to try this out!
Hi Alyssa, yes it’s a common thing here in the UK but maybe it’s not elsewhere. I believe it’s just the same as pumpkin pie spice mix, if you’re in the US? It’s essentially just a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger.
