Well, today was bright and sunny and in the balmy upper fifties. A nice change from the blustery rain of Tuesday and Wednesday; however, all these weather changes continue to throw me for a loop. The minute I decide I’m ready for the Christmas season, bare trees, snow, and cold, a day like today rolls by and I heave a sigh of confusion.
Today, I present the perfect ode to that confusion–peppermint tea smoothies. You know? Smoothies–something sweet and cool you eat when it’s warm. Peppermint–something sweet and cool you eat when it’s cold! Kills two birds with one stone.
Peppermint Tea Smoothies
1 1/2 cup vanilla ice cream
2 cups brewed peppermint tea (frozen in ice cube tray)
3 tablespoons honey
candy canes for garnish
Blend all ingredients except candy canes. And enjoy your enigmatic winter-summer treat!
Substitute the peppermint tea for other favorite varieties of tea for many delicious and refreshing smoothies. Both green tea and Chai are two personal favorites. *sigh* Chai.
Oh, by the way, who do you think the three smoothies are for?
