This smoothie recipe adapted from Prevention magazine is a great healthy alternative for breakfast or anytime of day when you want to get in some extra green tea!
We recommend using Stash Premium Green Tea or Stash Premium Green Decaf.

2 cups blueberries, fresh or frozen
3 ice cubes
12 ounces non-fat vanilla yogurt
2 tablespoons almonds, whole dry-roasted, unsalted (about 20)
2 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
Heat water to 170-190 degrees Fahrenheit and pour over tea bags. Steep 3 minutes.
Remove tea bags and discard.
Place tea, blueberries, ice, yogurt, almonds, and flaxseed in blender.
Process until smooth.
Makes 2 servings. Drink one smoothie today and refrigerate the other serving for tomorrow.
