I’ve been a tea drinker for as long as I can remember. And since I also love smoothies (what dietitian doesn’t?), I’m on totally on board with the idea of a tea-infused smoothie. If a London Fog Smoothie sounds up your alley too read on for the recipe!
I’m a big fan of a good cup of coffee in the afternoon, but I start every day with a milky cup of hot tea. Next to my morning snuggle with my sons, it’s my favourite part of the day. In fact, making a cup of tea is the first thing I do every morning without fail!
Despite the weather being cooler I still love a good smoothie so figured I would create a fall version to share with you. You can skip the step of freezing the tea and just add ice cubes if you wish, but I got the best results from freezing the tea. In fact, you could freeze a bunch at a time and just have them in a container in the freezer to make this smoothie on repeat in a pinch for those busy mornings!
How to Add More Nutrition to a Smoothie
I used dates as a sweetener to add some nutrition and fibre (my favourite way to sweeten a smoothie). You can also add in your favourite vanilla protein powder, a scoop of Greek yogurt or a spoonful of almond butter if you’re wanting to make this a heartier breakfast!
I’m a big fan of adding hemp hearts to smoothies since you can’t taste them and they have a decent amount of protein, fibre and healthy plant-based omega-3 fats! I usually add greens to most smoothies but this one is an exception;).
LONDON FOG SMOOTHIE
London Fog Smoothie
This London Fog Smoothie is the perfect fall snack or breakfast on the go! You can add a tablespoon of almond butter, a scoop of vanilla protein powder or some Greek yogurt if you want to make it heartier and add some protein.
- 1 cup strongly brewed Earl Grey tea cooled & frozen into ice cubes
- 1 cup vanilla soy milk* (or milk of choice)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
- 2-4 pitted dates
- 1-2 tablespoons hemp hearts
Blend all of the ingredients together until smooth and serve!
*use unsweetened soy milk for a less sweet smoothie. You can use any plant-based milk, but soy milk has a higher protein vs most others. Choose a fortified soy milk for the most nutrition.
