Being pregnant and the possibility of me having gestational diabetes (again!) means I always have to make sure I am putting a healthier spin on every single thing I am consuming. I need more fruit in my diet, but I can only have a limited amount. So, while my family can enjoy these delicious Fruit Iced Tea smoothies, I really have to have them in moderation.

Stir Things Up is the name of this campaign, and that what I did for this smoothie! It’s not your traditional smoothie. Nestlé Lemon Iced tea has always been one of my favourite drinks. So, it was only natural I chose to use it in this delicious fruit filled smoothie.

Packed full of delicious flavour, this smoothie is a hit of the family and requested often by the kids. I don’t make it too often, but when I do they really enjoy it!

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons nestle ice tea powder mix
  • 1 cup ice water
  • 1/2 cup whole cranberries
  • 1 cup mixed fruit ( pineapple, honeydew, peach, strawberry)
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk mango ice cream (sorbet would work well too!)
  • 2 tablespoons honey

Instructions:

  1. Mix iced tea powder with water add to blender
  2. combine all ingredients in blender and mix well.
  3. Be sure to pulse smoothie for optimal smoothness!

 

Nestea has reduced sugar by 25%, and has no artificial sweeteners, plus it is made with real tea leaves. Nestea has 25% less sugar than the leading soda brands and 29% Less Calories than pop and is only 50 calories per serving! Making it the perfect addition to a fruit packed smoothie!

Are you ready to Stir Things Up with your smoothies? Enjoy this delicious fruit packed Iced Tea smoothie all year long! You can use fresh fruit if you have them in season around you, or you can enjoy with frozen fruit, they work just the same!

    I usually go to hot beverages when the weather gets chillier but I would totally make this! Perfect too we have lots of frozen fruit from the summer.

    I’m obsessed with tea. However, I’ve never thought of incorporating tea into my smoothies. This is such a great idea.

    We love making smoothies but never considered adding tea to the mix. I’ll bet that would make a great summer treat!
