Green Tea Cooler

Ingredients

  • 1 cup green tea, prepared at regular strength
  • 2 kiwi fruit, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups diced honeydew melon, fresh or frozen
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 Tablespoon sweetener of choice (optional if fruit is very ripe and sweet)
  • 6 ice cubes

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor or blender, breaking the banana into three or four pieces. Blend or process until smooth. Serve immediately in tall glasses.

    Variations
    : > Replace part or all of the honeydew with another variety of melon. Make sure it's ripe!
    > For a breakfast smoothie, add 2 Tablespoons soy protein powder and another ice cube.
    > Try different types of green teas: a plain gunpowder , sencha, or fukujyu, or maybe one of the many fruit-flavoured teas that are readily available.
    > Add some fresh ginger: Place a 1/2-inch piece of (peeled) ginger root into a garlic press, hold it over the blender or food processor bowl, and squeeze out the pulp and juice, scraping the pulp off the press if necessary.
