Prep Time10 mins
Total Time10 mins
Servings: 1 to 2 people
- 1/2 medium banana
- 1 1/2 cups mixed berries (I used blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries.)
- 1 bag green tea (flavored or plain)
- 2 cups spinach
- 1/2 medium pear, cut into large pieces
Cover a cookie sheet with foil. Peel the banana, slice it into rounds, and place the slices on the cookie sheet.
Add berries to cookie sheet, cutting large berries (such as strawberries) into halves or quarters.
Make sure everything is in a single layer so it doesn't stick together later, then place cookie sheet in freezer and let sit until fruit is frozen, about 2 hours.
Meanwhile, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil. Pour water into a large mug and add the tea bag. Let steep for 3 - 5 minutes and then remove tea bag. Allow tea to cool to room temperature and set aside.
To make smoothie, add frozen fruit to a blender. Cover with spinach, then add pear. Pour cooled tea over everything and blend until smooth, stopping blender to stir as needed.
Serve smoothie immediately. Enjoy!
