Equipment

  • High Speed Blender (for example, Vitamix)

Ingredients

  • 2 Bananas, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup Peppermint Tea, chilled
  • 1 cup Blueberries, frozen
  • 1 cup Spinach, fresh

Instructions

  • Combine all ingredients into a high-speed blender.
  • Blend until smooth then pour into two glasses to serve.

Notes

Using a high speed blender while ensure that the spinach is fully chopped up and blended into the drink. I personally use and love my Vitamix.
Make sure you’re using peppermint tea that isn’t mixed with green tea if you are avoiding caffeine or want to serve this to kids. Also organic is best.
You can also make your own peppermint tea from fresh peppermint leaves by steeping them in water for a few minutes.
Don’t use sugar or a sweetener. The fruit is plenty sweet.
