On January 1, 2012 I sat down to write yet another list of resolutions for the Year. After thinking long and hard I realized that one word kept coming to mind as if spoken out loud to me; Transformation. So I tossed my pen and paper and decided, without any real plan or exact goal in mind, that 2012 was going to be a year of Transformation in whichever shape or form it would present itself to me. Since then, the word has kept appearing. My new love – yoga – is being practiced at lovely Transformation – Yoga.Fitness.Massage. Stories of others transformation constantly make their way onto may radar, and most recently I came across Body By Vi who promises to Transform lives by participating in their cleverly designed 90 Day Challenge. With Transformation being the “theme word” for 2012, I just had to take the challenge. Its starts now, with this energizing and refreshing Mango Green Tea smoothie!
- 1 cup green tea, chilled
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 mango, peeled and sliced
- ⅛th teaspoon ground ginger
- 2 scoops Vi Shape mix
- 3 to 4 ice cubes
- Steep green tea for 15 minutes, you want to yield fairly strong tea so the flavor carries thru in your smoothie. While the water is still hot, stir in honey. Let chill.
- Pour honey infused green tea into a blender, add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth and frothy.
*Tip ~ make more tea than needed for one serving and enjoy this Mango Green Tea energy smoothie for a few days straight.
