New Low Carb Chai Latte Smoothie Recipes

Elevate your low carb smoothies with the flavors of chai.

Low carb smoothies are a convenient and portable way to get a quick and easy boost of nutrients and energy when you don’t have the time to prepare an entire meal, let alone sit down and eat it. You can drink your low carb smoothie anywhere: on your commute, at your desk or during school drop-off. When you make your own smoothie, you’re in control of the quality of the ingredients, and you can ensure that it’s lower in sugar and carbs than many alternatives.

What is Chai?

Chai, which translates to “tea” in Hindi, is black tea typically infused with the flavors of cardamon, cinnamon, cloves and ginger.

Low Carb Chai Latte Smoothie Recipes

These Chai Latte Smoothies use Atkins’ new Chai Tea Protein Shakes (3g Net Carbs), which adds to your smoothie convenience factor, and are inspired by the flavors of traditional chai. You can kick off your morning with one of these delicious smoothies or spice up your afternoon snack, while getting a chai-flavored protein boost.

TIP: The secret to these thick and creamy smoothies is chilling the protein shake in the freezer beforehand.

Golden Milk Chai Shake Smoothie

Golden milk is a traditional drink in the Indian culture that is typically made with warm milk and turmeric, as well as other spices such as cinnamon and ginger. This smoothie, inspired by golden milk, has coconut milk, fresh ginger, and, of course, turmeric.

Pumpkin Pecan Chai Shake Smoothie

Pureed pumpkin (a low carb pantry essential for all sorts of recipes) adds a nutrient boost while pecans give your smoothie a little crunch.

Chia Chocolate and Chai Shake Smoothie

This smoothie will satisfy your afternoon chocolate cravings, while fiber-rich chia seeds will keep your full for longer.
