Green Tea Smoothie

Almost every single morning I’ve had a protein shake since I bought my new Strawberry natural powder! Well time to change it up for one morning!

Lately I’ve been a green tea ADDICT! I can’t stop drinking it. It’s so good and wonderful for you! I just read today that green tea also gives you healthy skin! I noticed I was starting to get a nice glow to my skin:)

At Wegman’s I also came across some beautiful kiwis! I absolutely love the fruit, but they can be a pain in the butt to peel! I usually do the scoop method with a spoon. Makes it a tad easier.

Love Kiwis!

Love Kiwis!

This smoothie also gave my food processor it’s final breath. It had been on shaky grounds for some time (hey what do I expect for 30 bucks at Target?), but the ice in this recipe pushed it over the edge. I don’t know how I am going to live now. I use my food processor for EVERYTHING! Basically the sides cracked and green tea smoothie went every which way. I still have a successful smoothie for you guys though šŸ™‚ Nothing stops Skinny Minnie!

For this recipe you will need:Ā 

-1 medium frozen banana
-2 kiwis
-1 cup of fresh spinach (stem removed)
-1 1/2 cup of FRESH brewed green tea (don’t use the bottle stuff! full of sugars)
-1/2 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1 Tablespoon of chia seeds
-ice cubes

Basically you just throw everything in! Simple right?

I always mix in batches though so I don’t overwhelm my food processor… guess that doesn’t matter now huh?

Everything minus the chia seeds and ice!

I give it a good mix, then add the chia seeds

Chi- Chi-Chi Chia!

Next add your ice. I did a good amount because I like it almost like a slushy! Eye ball it šŸ™‚

Post Ice Treatment!

Serve it up beautifully!

Looks like I belong on a beach somewhere! Wouldn't that be nice?

You don’t taste the spinach by the way, it just gives it a health boost šŸ™‚

Freeze this for a nice little slushy treat. It’s like a green tea kiwi granita! Awesome šŸ™‚ Two treats in one recipe!

Frozen Treat!

Happy Eating… Drinking… Eating?
