Chai Tea Smoothie - A Family Feast

I still remember the first time I had a chai tea many years ago. My friend Lisa and I were at Starbucks – and chai tea lattes were the ‘new thing’ to order (way) back then! I was instantly hooked on the warm spicy flavors, and to this day the taste of chai reminds me of my long-ago friend!

Chai Tea Smoothie - A Family Feast

Fast forward to now, and our Chai Tea Smoothie is a delicious way to enjoy all of the same delicious flavors – but in smoothie form!

We made our own chai tea concentrate using an easy chai spice mix recipe that we will share with you here tomorrow – but if you already have some store-bought chai tea bags or chai tea concentrate at home, that will work just as well.

Chai Tea Smoothie - A Family Feast

We mixed our homemade chai tea concentrate with ice, milk, agave nectar, plain Greek yogurt and some vanilla extract in a blender until smooth and frothy.

Chai Tea Smoothie

  • Prep Time: 1 hour 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 8 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 13 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings


Note: The majority of the prep time listed is to allow the Chai Tea Concentrate to cool. This step can be done in advance.


Chai Tea Concentrate

Additional Smoothie Ingredients

  • 3 cups ice cubes
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • ½ cup agave nectar
  • 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Start by preparing the chai tea concentrate: In a small saucepan, heat honey and water until just boiling. Stir to dissolve honey.
  2. Remove from heat and add Chai Spice Mix and teabags. Cover and allow to steep for 7 minutes. Remove teabags and pour mixture into a container and chill completely (about 1 hour). (This makes about 2/3 cup of concentrate.)
  3. To make the smoothie, in a blender add prepared chai tea concentrate, ice cubes, milk, agave nectar, Greek yogurt and vanilla extract.
  4. Blend on Smoothie setting (if your blender has one) for one cycle or until light and frothy and all ice has been incorporated (approximately 1 minute on high if using a manual setting).
  5. Pour into glasses and serve immediately.

    Are there any other recipes I can make with the chai mix? Can I just add it to non-dairy milk?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Susan – Yes, you can add this to non-dairy milk. Just a reminder that this is just the spice mix, and doesn’t include tea, so if you were hoping for a chai tea drink made with that milk, you would also need to steep some tea bags.

      We have Chai Sugar Cookie Squares recipe: as well as a Chai Coconut Chicken Strips recipe:

      You can also use this spice mix in any recipes that call for cinnamon – swapping this in would give the recipe a different flavor.

    I have black chai tea bags. Could this be used as a substitution for the chai spice and black tea?

    • Martha wrote:

      Sure Jennifer!

  • Tanya wrote:

    Is the greek yogurt just used to make it thicker? I’m lactose intolerant and am wondering what a good substitute would be for the yogurt. I can sub almond milk for the actual milk. Thanks!

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Tanya – The yogurt does make the smoothie thicker as well as provide protein and other nutrition. I suppose you could try swapping in silken tofu instead?

  • Adeline wrote:

    Sounds so good! I was thinking of prepping the concentrate beforehand and using it to make chai latte. How long can the concentrate last in the fridge?

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Adeline – There really isn’t anything perishable in the concentrate so I’d say you can safely keep it in the fridge for up to two weeks.

  • Linda wrote:

    How many cups will this make? I have the concentrate made, but it is just me. I’d rather use a portion of the concentrate and ingredients….if that’s possible….and make a single serving.

    • Martha wrote:

      Hi Linda – My apologies for the delay in responding. The recipe makes 3-4 cups of smoothie as written.

      • Linda wrote:

        Thanks. I must have missed that.

  • Christine wrote:

    I try….

    • Martha wrote:

      So glad you enjoyed the recipe Christine!

  • Linda wrote:

    This is good but I will reduce the Greek yogurt to one cup next time way to strong.

    My husband loves chai tea! When I worked at Starbucks when we first got married he would come in all the time to get chai tea lattes. I’m going to have to share this Chai Tea Smoothie with him! He’s going to love it!

    I’m so excited to see this post!! My favorite drink at Starbucks is their Cinnamon Chai Latte.
    Can’t wait to see your version of Chai mix–I might have to sneak in some cinnamon.

      Hi Linda – you can play around with the proportions of the spice mix to get it exactly how you like! 🙂
