Raspberry, spinach and green tea smoothie
Green tea is often thought of these days as a superfood, with its rich source of catechins, polyphenols and theanine. Most of us choose it as a delicious instant hot drink, but why keep it to tea time when there are easy and wonderful ways to enjoy its fantastic health benefits.
A smoothie is a great way to enjoy a green tea burst. You can add to any combination but if you are stuck for ideas try our tasty Raspberry, Spinach and Green Tea Smoothie recipe to start your day with a zing!
- 2 handfuls of raspberries (frozen or fresh)
- 1 handful of spinach leaves
- 1 pear, quartered and cored
- 1/2 tsp of Higher Nature Green Tea granules
- 1/8 of a watermelon, peeled
- Juice of half a lemon
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
