Tea-Licious Smoothie

The refreshing combination of peppermint and citrus in this smoothie is the perfect low-calorie and low-fat pick-me-up after working in the garden or playing a round of golf.

Adapted from "Smoothies: 50 Recipes for High-Energy Refreshment" by Mary Corpening Barber, Sara Corpening, and Lori Lyn Narlock.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brewed peppermint tea, room temperature or chilled
  • ½ cup lemon sorbet
  • 1 ½ cups fresh orange segments, frozen
  • ½ cup fresh grapefruit segments, frozen

Directions

Combine the chilled tea and sorbet in a blender. Add the orange and grapefruit segments. Blend until smooth.

Smoothie Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Smoothie Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
