  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground allspice  
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) finely crushed fennel seeds 
  • 1 tsp (5 mL) ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup (250 mL) Liberté Plain Kéfir
  • 3 tbsp (45 mL) chia seeds
  • 2 large frozen bananas 
  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) vanilla extract

Preparation

Chai Spice Blend:

  1. Stir cinnamon with ginger, cardamom, allspice, fennel, nutmeg, cloves and pepper. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.

Smoothie:

  1. Place kéfir and chia seeds in a blender; let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Add banana, maple syrup, 1 tsp (5 mL) Chai Spice Blend and vanilla; purée until smooth.

  3. Pour into 2 glasses. Garnish with a pinch of the spice blend. 

Notes: 

Making a large batch of the spice blend makes it faster to prepare smoothies and it can also be used to flavour granola, rice pudding or toss with fruit.

Peel, chop and arrange ripe bananas in an even layer and freeze until firm then transfer to an airtight container to have on hand for smoothies.
