Posted by Sandra
½ tablespoon organic Rooibos Winter Chai Tea leaves
½ cup hot water
1 organic kiwi, peeled and sliced (reserve one slice for garnishing rim of glass)
1 organic *banana, peeled, sliced, and frozen
1 unpeeled organic apple, cored, and sliced
1 organic orange, peeled, and remove pulp and seeds by sectioning
1 teaspoon organic freshly squeezed lime juice
½ tablespoon wheat germ
-- 1 straw
Place ½ cup hot tap water and tea leaves in a 2-cup glass measuring cup and microwave on high for 1 minute, and set aside to steep for 3 minutes. Strain into a small bowl, toss tea leaves, and let broth cool.
Meanwhile, prep and add all remaining ingredients to blender. Add cooled tea broth and puree for 1 minute, just until smooth, and serve. – Enjoy!
*Tip: I freeze peeled, ripe bananas that I've cut into quarters in Ziploc bags. I use them often for frozen treats such as this, or for baking in recipes later on once thawed.
