Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2 green tea bags

Green Tea Smoothie

Lisa Turner | Delicious Living
  • Serves: 2 people

A calcium-packed, energizing breakfast to go. Prep tips: Customize this creamy, sweet smoothie with additional boosts; try a few spoonfuls of brown rice protein powder, raw almond butter, green foods powder, matcha green tea powder, or ground flaxseed. To freeze bananas, peel and slice; place in a plastic bag and freeze overnight. Freeze several to keep on hand for future smoothies.

Directions
  1. Remove water from boil; then add tea bags and steep for 3 minutes. Remove tea bags, squeezing to extract all liquid. Discard bags; let tea cool for 2–3 minutes.
  2. Combine bananas, strawberries, and milk in a blender. Pour in slightly cooled tea and purée until smooth. Add agave nectar or stevia and any additional boosters, and purée again to blend. Serve immediately.
