I have recently cut out simple sugar out of my diet and this has started me on the search for healthy snacks. There is a great refreshing beverage that I found and I wanted to share because it soooo GOOD. The main ingredient in this recipe has Green Tea in it and Green Tea is a very powerful anti-oxidant that is linked with inhibiting cancer cells from growing and many more health benefits.
Green Tea Frappuccino Blended
2 green -tea bags
1/2 cup boiling water
1 packet Truvia (you can get this in the sugar area)
1 cup of ice
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 scoop (30 grams) Jay Robb Vanilla Whey Protein Powder (I used a vanilla whey protein powder that I already had. I did not buy this brand)
1/2 cup cold whipping cream
1 packet Truvia
1. For the tea: Pour boiling water over the tea bags; allow to steep for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and carefully squeeze, then stir in sweetener (Truvia); chill. Combine the chilled tea mixture with the next three ingredients in a blender, and process until smoother.
2. For the whipped topping: Whip cream with sweetener until soft peaks form.
3. Pour the drink into a glass and top with whipped cream.
