Tips

Tip: To brew strong green tea, use twice the amount of tea (or two tea bags), but do not over steep. Green tea should be steeped for no longer than 3 minutes; over steeping will give the tea a bitter taste.

I 'heart' this! Needed a healthy way to increase my potassium. Was getting less than 50%. I substituted the honey and added 3 dates to sweeten and increase the potassium. 1 serving provides a wowing 94% (3 303 mg) of the recommended daily allowance. And the bonus... tastes GREAT!!!! Read More

Refreshing Go-To Smoothie This is really tasty. I modified the recipe a bit by substituting half the avocado with some plain Greek yogurt to increase the protein content and also added some fresh ginger and flax and chia powder. Also made concentrated green tea with half the water which I added to a separate container shaken with a few ice cubes before dumping the lot into the blender. Didn't notice the call for honey for the longest time. Doesn't really need it IMO. Read More

This is a really refreshing smoothie. I used Macha blend green tea and substituted the avocado with a soft/silken tofu and added mint leaves. Very good. Read More

I have to say this is really tasty. I add manuka honey to this to sweeten and sometimes replace grapes with a kiwi fruit (skin on) and some strawberries. You can add any other fruits if you wish. I find it hard to eat the ingredients separately so find the smoothie is the easiest way to get all I need in 1 drink. I put the green tea in the fridge for half an hour once the teabag has drained well to cool it down or you can add ice to the smoothie to cool it down. Read More

Sweet a lovely sweet smoothie that really toom the edge off the afternoon heat. A bit chunky with bits of grape peel but I suspect that's more to do with the craptastic quality of my blender than anything else. A great way to get children to eat leafy greens. Pros: sweet cooling thirst quencer Cons: a bit chunky Read More
