Wild Sweet Orange Smoothie

I love my Banana Chamomile Smoothie and drink one several times a week.  The other day I thought to myself, why not switch things up and try the same method with another kind of tea?  In the cupboard I found some TAZO Wild Sweet Orange tea bags (that I'd swiped from an education conference at a hotel last spring . . . shhh!) and I had a navel orange in the fridge that I thought would go well with it.

This smoothie is creamy with a deliciously bright and fresh citrus taste.  It is a refreshing change from the usual.

Hmmmm . . . what other tea smoothies might I try next?  

Wild Sweet Orange Smoothie
(printable recipe


1 cup TAZO Wild Sweet Orange tea, cold (I steep overnight in the fridge with two tea bags)
1 cup almond milk (I use unsweetened vanilla)
3 tbsp. old-fashioned oats
2 tbsp. protein powder (optional; I use Life's Basics Unsweetened Vanilla)
1 tbsp. agave
1 medium navel orange, peeled and segmented

2 frozen bananas, broken into chunks
1 cup ice cubes


1. Combine tea, almond milk, oats, protein powder, agave, and orange in blender.  (I use a VitaMix.)  Give a whir to blend up the oats and orange.

2. Add the bananas and ice and blend until smooth.  

Makes 1-2 servings.

What tea flavor should I use in my next smoothie?
