Ingredients

  • 2 cups (500 mL) honeydew melon chunks
  • 2 Pure Green tea bags
  • 1 cup (250 mL) boiling water
  • 1/2 cup (125 mL) vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) honey (optional)

Tips

  • Make this smoothie anytime you like by freezing extra melon in advance and portioning into separate, re-sealable freezer bags.
  • Experiment with other combinations of our teas and fruit for equally delicious smoothies such as Chai tea with frozen cantaloupe, and Bellini Peach Orange with a frozen tropical fruit medley.
