Red Paradise is just one example of a really tasty tea from this fun and friendly tea-maker. Red Paradise is a punch-style herbal tea with sweet blueberries and tropical mango mixed with beautiful lemongrass.
Red Paradise can be made into a seriously delicious smoothie. Here's the recipe:
RED PARADISE TEA SMOOTHIE
- Your favourite berries (frozen work best)
- 1 Banana
- 1/2 cup iced Red Paradise (To make the iced tea, you can use one of these methods)
- A handful of fresh spinach
The quickest way to make iced tea for this is to make your hot tea with 1 tsp of tea and 1/4 cup of water. Pour it over ice and add it to your smoothie.
Indulge a little and top with a tea-infused whip cream! Heat the liquid whipping cream and steep your tea in it. Let it cool and whip it up!
Have you used tea in smoothies before for boosts of flavour and health?
