Good Green Tea Smoothie
From EatingWell: January/February 2012
This green smoothie is packed with grapes, spinach, green tea and avocado. A touch of honey adds sweetness.
- 3 cups frozen white grapes
- 2 packed cups baby spinach
- 1 1/2 cups strong brewed green tea (see Tip), cooled
- 1 medium ripe avocado
- 2 teaspoons honey
- Combine grapes, spinach, green tea, avocado and honey in a blender; blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
Tips & Notes
- Tip: To brew strong green tea, use twice the amount of tea (or two tea bags), but do not oversteep. Green tea should be steeped for no longer than 3 minutes; oversteeping will give the tea a bitter taste.
