Sunrise Smoothie

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.

Cooking Light APRIL 2001

  • Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)

Ingredients

  • 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

Preparation

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.
