Ginger Peach Green Tea Smoothie

Ginger Peach Green Tea Smoothie

My husband used to travel quite a bit for his old job, and his trips to Asia hooked him on a cultural staple: green tea. So naturally he tried to get me on board, too. Now I’m a tea drinker, so you wouldn’t think this would be a hard sell. But the authentic green tea he brought back from his travels just didn’t do it for me. I tried, I really did. But I just didn’t care for straight up green tea. So I started looking for substitutes, and my “house tea” was born: Ginger Peach Green Tea from The Republic of Tea. Just adding that bit of peach flavor and zip of ginger made it the perfect green tea for me. But who would have thought it would also make a tasty addition to my daily smoothie?

I’m pretty sure I’m late to the party on this whole tea-in-smoothies thing, but better late than never, right? This Ginger Peach Green Tea Smoothie has juicy peaches, protein-rich vanilla greek yogurt, a bite of fresh ginger, half a banana for sweetness and some brewed and cooled Ginger Peach Green Tea. That’s it, folks. The rest is just blender magic. I love it as a super refreshing pick-me-up to tide me through the mid-afternoon munchies. 

Let’s be real; I know many of you are far more adventurous than me when it comes to making smoothies, so serve ‘em up! What is the most inventive ingredient that you put in your smoothies? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

    • Thanks, Julia. If I could, I’d deliver one to you right now. I’m sure you can use a mid-afternoon energy boost with those two little ones. :)

  8. I currently live in China and I still can’t get used to green tea. To think- the Chinese just leave tea leaves in their little portable mugs…I do love me some jasmine tea though. I bet there would be a place for that in this smoothie combo!
