Several days a week, I make smoothies for breakfast.

For the base of the smoothies, I often use Brazil nuts or black sesame seeds to make the milk.

However, when I am in the mood for something a little lighter, I’ll substitute nuts/seeds with tea. Yes, tea.

While I am completely sold on the medicinal benefits of tea, I am just not a (hot) tea drinker. So, in order to get the huge amounts of antioxidant benefits of tea, I’ll use it in my smoothies.

Today, I made a green tea cacao smoothie.

Organic ingredients used for 2 large glasses:

– 3 cups of cold filtered water

– 3 small bananas

– 3 packets of ActiGreen, a special green tea powder with 3-4x the amounts of antioxidants as normal green tea.

– 1.5 tablespoons of palm sugar

– 1.5 tablespoons of raw cacao powder

– 1/2 teaspoon of Artisana raw coconut oil

– 2 tablespoons of chia seeds

– 3 tablespoons of Boku’s protein powder

Finally, put all of the organic ingredients into the blender for 15 seconds.

Two great things about this smoothie:

1) It can be made in about 2-3 minutes and requires almost no prep time.

2) It is a fantastic recipe to make while traveling. If you’re going somewhere that has a blender, you can literally pack all of the ingredients that you need in order to make yourself a nutritious breakfast in the morning.

And, yes, this green tea cacao smoothie tasted as good as it looks. It is light, refreshing, packed with antioxidants, and won’t weigh you down.
