Strawberry season is here, and these beautiful red berries are on sale everywhere you look. The other day walking past my local fruit and vegetable shop I just couldn't resist them. They sat there looking so perfect and juicy ready to come home with me! After eating (OK I'll admit it , pigging out ) almost a whole package, I sat thinking what else can I do with all my strawberries???? The next day I was really looking for an afternoon pick me up, which usually has me reaching for another cup of tea. As I pulled the Matcha Tea , Japanese Green tea powder, the idea of making a smoothie with my yummy strawberries popped in my head.
So now that we have our health lesson for today we can move on to the recipe :)
Your ingredients : (1 serving)
1 small tangerine
1/4 tsp. Matcha
7 ice cubes
1/3 cup / 100 ml milk (regular or soy)
honey to taste
Blender, strong enough to grinding ice cubes.
1. Wash and prepare the strawberries by removing the green stems and cut into halves. Place the ice cubes in the blender and blend until they have broken up completely. Next add the milk, strawberries, honey, tea, and squeeze the juice of the tangerine into the blender. Blend until smooth and serve! (You can experiment with adding or subtracting the amounts of the ingredients to get a thicker or thinner smoothie. )
