Hey, hey summers here! And I totally just ordered a new black bikini to prove it.
I also cut my air conditioning on for the first time of the year and have the beginnings of tan lines from last weekend’s kayaking adventure.
Summer is a beautiful thing.
And so are these smoothies! They’re a super refreshing blend of green tea, juicy honeydew melon and banana with a touch of almond milk and honey.
Just one sip and you’ll be addicted like me…and that’s a fact.
If you’re one of those people that are freaking out right now, asking “where’s the protein??!”, please calm yourselves. This smoothie isn’t meant to be one of those beefcake-post-workout-green-machine-protein-bomb smoothies.
It’s quite the opposite actually. It’s a smoothie you sip while you bake, a smoothie you sip with a sandwich for lunch, a smoothie you sip while getting a pedicure, a smoothie you sip while driving down the road with the top down and sweet tunes blasting.
No, this smoothie isn’t intended to be a meal replacement although I have half a mind to add a big scoop of almond butter to the blend next time around.
Green tea smoothies = the new sangria
minus the hangover for optimal sipping power.
And, like a black bikini, never goes out of style.
Green Tea Smoothies
1 frozen banana
1/2 large honeydew melon, cut into chunks
3/4 cup strong brewed green tea (use two tea bags and seep for ten minutes)
1 tsp honey
1/4 cup almond milk
Blend all ingredients until smooth. Sip while wearing a bikini for ultimate benefits.
