Green Tea-Honeydew Smoothie

Green Tea Smoothies

Green Tea Smoothies

Yes you can add a little energy boost to your morning smoothie by using green tea. The best way is to of course brew your own tea, as when you buy it in the market it tends to have a lot of additives and sugars. So the night before brew up some of your favorite green tea and put in the fridge till morning. While your add it maybe slice up the fruit and put it in the freezer as well, then should only take you a couple mins to put this together in the morning.

1 Banana
1/2 A honeydew melon cubed (preferably frozen)
1/4 Almond or Rice milk
1 tsp Honey
3/4 cup of green tea, chilled

Thats it! put it all into your blender and blend till smooth. Now besides all of teas great health benefits, it does add caffeine (unless you brew a de-caffenated tea) to the mix here. Some people (like me) try to avoid caffeine so please be aware of this.

Honeydew-Kiwi Smoothie

Here is a tasty treat I found on Fitness Magazine. Haven’t tried it yet but its on my list to create soon. They had sugar as an ingredient but why ruin such a healthy smoothie with sugar? If you need to sweeten it up more do it with more fruit or a little agave

Kiwi-Honeydew Smoothie

I love Kiwi

  • 2 cups  cubed honeydew
  • 1 small  Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and cut up
  • 1 kiwifruit, peeled and cut up
  • 1 tablespoons  ground flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 1 cup  ice cubes

In a blender container, combine fruit, and lemon juice. Cover and blend until smooth. Add ice cubes; cover and blend until cubes are crushed and mixture is slushy.  If you want to add a little protein powder to give a it a little more of a full meal nutrition go right ahead. Although as it is its more of a refreshing beverage to enjoy along with your oatmeal. Makes 2-3 servings (or if your servings are like min then 1)

If you try it before me be sure to leave a comment on what you think :)
