I love using organic matcha green tea powder to make my green tea. I like DoMatcha and Republic of Tea. There are many other great green teas out there to choose from, so choose what's best for you (and please share in comments below!). You can definitely use bagged tea as well.
Below is the recipe for Simple Green Tea Smoothie… I really love the combination of these ingredients in this smoothie. Super delicious! We are on the cusp of something great and wonderful by spreading the word about green smoothies and raw food.
- 2 cups fresh spinach
- 1 cup green tea (brewed)
- 1 1/2 cups green grapes
- 1 banana (frozen)
- 1 cup mango
- Freeze your banana overnight
- Blend all the ingredients together in a high speed blender until smooth and enjoy.
