Directions

  1. Brew your favorite green or white tea (** I personally like the Vanilla White Apricot by Tazo for this smoothie) and chill it thoroughly.
  2. If you like your smoothies thick .. (like a shake) you could also make ice cubes with the tea .. blending 1/2 cup of ice cubes with 1/2 cup of cold tea
  3. Add all of the ingredients to the blender, starting with the liquid to lubricate the blades. Add the leafy greens and then the fruit (** adding the fruit last helps push everything down toward the blades)
  4. Blend thoroughly until smooth
  5. Serve over ice, if desired.
