Smoothie's are such a refreshing summer breakfast, drink or snack. Almost as refreshing as an ice cold beer on a nice summer day, and definitely healthier. Smoothies are a great way to use up fruit that is on the verge of going bad, which is exactly what I did here. I'll be adding this strawberry green tea to my smoothie rotation, changing up the fruit depending on what I have on hand. One of my other favorites is my peanut butter banana, yes it's as good as it sounds and I'll be posting about it here at some point.
I also completed the Philadelphia Triathlon, ate a Pat's Cheesesteak, and had a lot of fun with friends this weekend, which is my excuse for taking the easy way out and posting an easy baked sweet potato and smoothie recipe in a row. Don't get me wrong they are both delicious, but I'll be honest, it's my filler for not cooking in the past 5 days. Keep reading for the smoothie recipe, and keep in mind that you can substitute any fruit you have on hand for the strawberries and peach.
3/4 cup strong brewed green tea (I use 2 tea bags)
12 frozen strawberries, stems removed
1 frozen peach, pitted and cut into pieces
1/2 tsp honey
1/3 cup greek yogurt
1/4 cup of milk
ice cubes (optional)
Throw everything in your blender and blend together. Add a few ice cubes if you would like a thicker consistency, I prefer not to use ice cubes as it waters it down, but that's a personal preference.
