Blame it on the nice weather (or maybe just Rita’s opening right around the corner from our house), but I have been loving icy, slushy drinks lately. On Saturday, after our long walk (and cheese steak) I was feeling like a little something. Initially, I was going to have some green tea to balance out our lunch, but I was craving something icy and slushy.
First, I brewed some green tea because um, helllooo health then I let it cool in the refrigerator. Once it cooled, I tossed it in the blender with 1/2 cup of frozen organic blueberries, a handful of ice and a squeeze of lemon and then blended the whole thing until smooth. I love blueberries, not only for their awesome yummy flavor, but also because they are FULL of antioxidants. Yum!
Okay, granted its not going to replace that ice cream cone, but its still icy, and slushy and yummy. Not a bad a treat for around 50 calories. Enjoy!
