We tried this smoothie with 2% reduced-fat milk but liked it much better with the soy milk. Any kind of fruit will work--try strawberries or peaches.
4 cubed peeled kiwifruit (about 3/4 pound)
2 medium ripe bananas, cut into 1-inch pieces
4 fruit-flavored green tea bags
1 1/2 cups boiling reduced-fat soy milk
1 tablespoon honey
How to Make It
Place cubed kiwifruit and banana pieces in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and place in freezer for 30 minutes or until almost firm. Place the tea bags in a medium bowl. Pour the boiling soy milk over tea bags, and steep for 3 minutes. Strain the tea mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl, and discard the tea bags. Stir in honey, and cool. Combine the kiwifruit, bananas, and tea mixture in a blender, and process until mixture is smooth.
I couldn't really taste the tea (I used pomegranate green tea), since the kiwi and banana dominated, so might just make this with vanilla soy milk next time and skip the steep process. Still yummy though.
Great Recipe! It made moreso two good smoothies (as a meal) vs. 5 servings (maybe snack size?) In place of the kiwi, I used mango. Also, I used Lipton Pomergranate Cranberry Green Tea and it was delicious! The honey was not even necessary to get the perfect sweetness!
