I’m picky when it comes to chai.
In fact, I rarely order a chai latte when out as they’re often too sweet or too spicy. But homemade chai lattes? Now that I can get behind.
These chai overnight oats with CBD oil are my current go-to breakfast as they’re:
I also like how the chai spice helps mask the earthiness of a full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD oil. And even if you use a CBD isolate or skip the CBD altogether, I guarantee that you’ll still appreciate the level of spice in these oats.
These CBD-infused chai overnight oats require just a handful of whole ingredients:
I love making my own chai spice blend as it gives me full control over the flavors.
I started by using this recipe from Fit Foodie Finds (trust me, pretty much any recipe from FFF is bound to turn out great!). From there, I started tweaking it until I found the combination that I like best.
So how did I tweak it? Well, to start I nixed the cloves as it’s a spice I never use and really don’t care for that much.
Next, as I prefer a stronger flavor of cinnamon, I upped the cinnamon and reduced the ginger a tad.
I’ve even made this blend without the ginger and still loved it!
Here’s what goes in my chai spice blend:
Once you have you blend made, simply store it in a small glass jar for up to 1 year (leftover empty spice jars are perfect for this! Otherwise you can buy a set of glass ones on Amazon, or use a small mason jar).
While it can seem odd, but overnight oats don’t require any cooking (although, you can pop them in the microwave in the morning if you prefer warm oats).
Instead, overnight oats are soaked in milk (I use oat milk) overnight, which makes them perfectly soft for eating straight out of the jar.
Besides being convenient, soaking oats overnight can also have two key health benefits:
For more on CBD, be sure to check out my collection of articles (with many more on the way!).
However, there are several potential benefits of pure CBD, including:
Still, it’s important to remember that research is still very limited.
It’s also important to talk with your doctor or RD if you’re concerned about any medication interactions. And finally, CBD is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Use whatever you already have.
I know, kind of a cop out. But the great thing about these chai overnight oats is that they can mask the earthy flavor of full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD oils.
However, if you really can’t stand that earthy flavor, then I recommend using a CBD isolate as it’ll be tasteless.
Curious what the differences are? Be sure to check out my post that compares these three options!
As for brand, my go-to is CBDistillery. The reasons I’m a fan of CBDistillery are:
That last point is a biggie for me. As a research-nerd, I love their dedication to educating the public about the CBD industry so that we as consumers can make more informed decisions.
This is where I remind you that I am a dietitian, but as I don’t know your individual health needs, I am not making any recommendations of how much you personally should add.
In human studies, the dosage used varies SO much.
As in 20 mg per day all the way up to 1,500 mg. The best way to know how much to take is by talking to a doctor or RD.
However, if you’re new, a good place to start is 20 mg and then increase by 5 mg each week until you notice an improvement in your symptoms.
As for these chai overnight oats, how much to add also depend on whether you want to take a full daily dose in the morning or split up half in the morning and half at night.
Again, this is going to depend on what you’re using it for and what works best for your body.
To help you know how much to add, you can use my calculation here for figuring out how much CBD per drop that your product provides.
If you use CBDistillery products, the label tells you exactly how much is in a dropper.
For example, I used a ½ dropper of their THC-Free Pure CBD Oil Tincture 2500mg, which has 83 mg of CBD per full dropper. This means I had about 40mg in my oats, which is the most I personally have per day.
But again, just because that works for me, doesn’t mean it’s what’s best for you. Start with just a few drops and go from there.
