This pretty pink smoothie is a terrific morning pick-me-up!  Fresh strawberries and raspberries blend perfectly with Razzmintazz, a delicious fusion of fruity blackberries and raspberries, tart hibiscus, floral chamomile and cool peppermint.  The end result is a sweet and refreshing breakfast drink that’s sure to brighten even the rainiest of days in April.

Serves one thirsty person

Ingredients:

1 cup fresh strawberries, rinsed and hulled
1 cup fresh raspberries, rinsed
1 banana
1/4 piece of avocado
1-2 tablespoons agave or honey, optional
1 cup boiling water
4 teaspoons Razzmintazz tea
1 glass of ice

Directions

1. Start by brewing your tea.  Put the tea leaves in a small brewing vessel, pour the water over them and allow the tea to steep for about four minutes.  This will create a strong infusion.  When the tea is brewed, pour it over the glass of ice.  Some of the ice will melt and dilute that infusion, and you’ll be left with the perfect glass of iced tea!

2. Put the rest of the ingredients along with the tea into a blender, and blend until smooth.

3. Enjoy!

Sweetie Pie Strawberry Smoothie

mlkwwords

There’s something so decadent about a strawberry milkshake: creamy, fruity, and perfectly pink, it always feels like such a treat. On the other hand, normal milkshakes are loaded with refined sugar and dairy, rendering them, well, not very healthy! But here at Tealish, we pride ourselves on being inventive with flavours, so we meddled around with some of our favorite ingredients to come up with the best tea infused, vegan strawberry smoothie-shake, just in time for Valentine’s Day! The best part? It’s full of antioxidants!

The Goods:

Recipe makes 2 servings

5 teaspoons of Sweetie Pie Rooibos

1/4 cup boiling water

1 Tablespoon Rooibos Latte Mix

1/2 cup of frozen organic strawberries

1/2 cup of Almond milk (or milk of your choice)

1 cup vegan vanilla ice cream (we LOVE Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss in Vanilla Island)

mlk2

The Method:

1. Steep 5 teaspoons of Sweetie Pie Rooibos in 1.4 cup boiling water for 5 minutes. Let the water cool.

2. Once cooled, add the steeped tea and all other ingredients into a blender or milkshake maker. Blend until smooth.

3. Pour, add some romantic straws and/or garnishes and enjoy!
