Strawberry green tea mint smoothie recipe

Healthy, convenient and portable, smoothies are ideal fuel-on-the-go for breakfast, or as an afternoon snack or dessert.This recipe has a great combination of sweet strawberries, tangy lime, and mint with green tea for a smoothie that is refreshing. As an added bonus you can use standard sized Mason jars on your blender instead of the pitcher, making it easier if you’re in a rush.

1 green tea bag
3/4 cup very hot water
1 cup fresh strawberries, halved
1/4 cup milk
1/2 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon honey
fresh mint leaves

1)Steep the tea bag for 2 minutes in hot water. Remove the bag and allow the tea to cool.

2)Pour the tea into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid, at least 2 hours (it’s easier if you keep this in the freezer the night before).

3)Put the strawberries, milk, lime juice, honey and mint into a blender and blend until smooth.
