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)

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!

The Method

1. Whisk matcha and hot water together in a small bowl. If you don’t have a matcha whisk, try a small metal whisk, milk frother or fork.

2. Stir in the honey until it melts. If you like a sweeter dressing, add a bit extra.

3. Add oil, salt, and lemon juice, stir and store for up to a week in the fridge.

*Enjoy with any salad you like: We love it on baby spinach with cherry tomatoes and cashews!
