Notes

I like to boil 8 cups of water on the stove on Sundays and throw a couple of tea bags in to steep for 10 minutes. Allow the tea to cool for a couple of hours, then fill mason jars up with the cooled tea. It makes for a great addition to on the go drinks.

Save the remaining serving in the fridge for the next day. Or freeze for later. If you’re planning to head to the gym, or you’re a bit younger in age, feel free to have the full smoothie in one sitting, or add protein powder to the mix.
