I've concocted a lot of different smoothie combinations over the last few weeks, and this one is the winner. No doubt about it. I've made it three times in the last week.
It's super easy to make, especially if you brew your tea the night before so that it has a chance to cool. Otherwise, you'll be like me - waiting anxiously while it sits in the freezer. If you wanted a frothier smoothie, you could also freeze the green tea in ice cube trays and have it on the ready whenever you want one.
Because green tea does have a little caffeine (unless it's decaffeinated like mine is), this is a great smoothie for a summer morning if you're attempting to cut back on your coffee consumption.
And it gets bonus points for making you feel like you're on an island.
Green Tea Mango Smoothie
1 cup brewed green tea, cold
1 1/2 cups diced mango (I like to do a mix of both fresh and frozen)
1 pitted medjool date (optional, for added sweetness)
Blend together, and you're done.
I hope you're all looking forward to wonderful summer weekends! See you on Monday!
PS - Remember how I'm speaking at the same conference as Katie Couric? Well, I'm also speaking at the same conference as Martha Stewart. It's official, y'all - I'm famous.
