quick lunch smoothie: 3 apricots, 2 handfuls frozen blueberries, 1 tsp piece fresh ginger, juice of half a lemon, 5 ice cubes. blended until super smooth. (see more photos here.)
The first time I ever saw strawberry and green tea together in one drink, I was like, “Whaaaat?!” I never knew such a combination could actually be amazing. This is a super simple drink that you can customize to your own tastes - want less tart? More strawberry? Go at it.
It’s sort of like a cross between a smoothie, a juice, and a frozen lemonade - just go with it, it tastes good, alright?
Pulse these ingredients together in a blender until it’s a smooth, thick juice consistency, like a Naked juice:
- two handfuls frozen strawberries
- the juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1 tbsp agave, or 2 tsp raw sugar
- 1/2 cup water + 2 tsp green tea matcha powder -OR- 1/2 cup chilled brewed green tea (be sure to have extra of either of these mixtures on hand, in case you need to add in more to get the blender moving.)
The green tea makes the flavor more full and interesting, and the lemon gives the sugar a little kick. It’s a fun drink to make for your whole household on a sunny pre-summer afternoon!
