the temperatures are cooling down here in the northeast, but i know a great deal of people out there are still being tormented by insufferable heat. when it's exceptionally hot, i often opt for smoothies in place of solid food. a few weeks ago when we were in the throws of summer, i blended a strawberry mango mint iced tea smoothie.
8 oz of frozen mangos and strawberries (because the fruit is frozen, it's not necessary to add ice)
3-4 oz silken tofu (excellent source of protein and makes the smoothie filling)
8 oz cold brewed green tea with mint (twinings makes cold brewed iced tea packets)
preferred sweetener, to taste (i didn't need any)
blend. blend. BLEND.
cold. refreshing. filling. ahhhh.
