Looking for a way to detox those cookies... and possibly those out-of-this-world cinnamon rolls from the holidays? What better way to do so than with a smoothie! My mom got a Magic Bullet for her birthday and while I was skeptical since it came from an infomercial, it actually works very well! It crushes ice with ease. Allow me to introduce to you a very energizing way to start your day. It has green tea to help give you that caffeine kick and cleanse your system, and the berries provide you with delicious taste and essential fibre and vitamins you'll need to energize you and boost your immune system throughout the day. We happened to have a bowl of freshly cut up fruit (blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries) so I used that, but you could use any types of fruit you desire. And if you have frozen fruit on hand that works great too-- you don't have to worry about adding ice!
Give this a try, it of course works with any food processor or blender.
The Simplest Smoothie
- 1 1/2 cups fruit (I used blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries)
- 1 green tea bag
- 1/3 cup of ice
In the microwave, heat up about a cup or two of water (bring to boil). Add green tea bag and steep for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes squeeze the bag dry to ensure lots of added green tea goodness since you won't be using all the water.
