Green Tea Smoothie Recipes
3 Easy Ways To Start Your Day!

These green tea smoothie recipes are like one-stop shopping for breakfast - it has all the health benefits and antioxidants of green tea in a nourishing, satisfying beverage that takes only minutes to prepare!



Do you remember how your mother always claimed that breakfast was the most important meal of the day?

Well, it’s true! Unfortunately, many people live such busy lives that there simply isn’t enough time in the morning to prepare a healthy, nourishing breakfast. This drink is for those people.

It seems like half of the yogurt section in the grocery store has been marked up and labeled “pro-biotic,” but if you use a good quality plain yogurt that contains a variety of active cultures you’ll get the same benefit and spend less money.

For people who need a little extra jump-start in the morning, using regular (non-decaf) green tea provides a subtle energy boost from the caffeine.

Are you ready to try the following recipes?


Green Tea Smoothie Recipes #1:
Green Tea and Almond Smoothie

green tea smoothieAlmonds add a lovely subtle flavor and extra protein, while yogurt with active cultures benefits your digestive system.

This recipe lends itself to variation. For example, try it with fruit, frozen yogurt instead of plain yogurt, or almond milk instead of yogurt for a nondairy version.

Ingredients

¼ cup of sliced almonds (you can also use 1 tablespoon of store-bought almond butter)

4 tablespoons honey

1 8 oz cup of green tea

½ cup of plain or vanilla yogurt

How to make:

Step 1. Combine almonds and 1 tablespoon of honey in the blender.

Step 2. Blend on high speed for 2-3 minutes, until the mixture forms a smooth paste with the consistency of peanut butter.

If you are using pre-made almond butter, skip this step and just add the almond butter in with the other ingredients in step 2.

Step 3. Add green tea, yogurt, and the rest of the honey. Blend until everything is smooth. It’s important to blend the honey in with the rest of the ingredients before you add the ice. Otherwise, your smoothie will studded with little chunks of hardened honey.

Step 4. Add 1 cup of ice and blend on high until the drink is smooth.

Enjoy!
