Banana Blueberry Spinach Shake

This has become my new favorite shake! It’s so easy to make and helps to get those greens in! I love it for an afternoon snack, around 3 when I need a pick-me-up! But, it’s also great for breakfast!

I do sell the stevia and collagen, so check out my store, too!

If you are following THM, this is a great E meal or snack! 😀

Note: all of the following were fresh ingredients, except for the blueberries which were frozen. You could also freeze the banana and/or the spinach… or add ice cubes, for more of a frozen shake. For the kids, I will use an extra banana, replace the almond milk with whole milk and replace the stevia with either honey or maple syrup. I also leave out the collagen if it is for one of the little ones. I don’t think it is harmful, I just think it is rather expensive if they don’t need it.

This makes 1 large serving for an adult or teen, or several for a younger child.

Custom Collagen

Pure stevia extract, 1 oz.

Peppermint Tea

My husband’s all time favorite drink! (Yes, I think he even likes this better than Dr. Pepper! 😳) Peppermint tea is easy to make, but it goes way too fast! I make two gallons at a time, as that is about what it takes for a drink, for one meal, for my family. The recipe here is for 1 gallon.

Here is the tea I use. You can get this from many grocery or health food stores. Or if you’d like to support my small business, you can order it from me. 😉 Make sure to take advantage of my flat rate shipping and stock up on some other things while you are at it! Like the stevia for sweetening this!

Peppermint tea, 40 bag, Celestial Seasonings

Peppermint tea
About 2 cups of water
7 tea bags
3/4 teaspoon THM stevia extract
More water to equal a gallon

Instructions:
Bring a couple quarts of water to a boil. Add the tea bags. Turn off the heat and cover. Let set for at least 1/2 hour. Remove and squeeze out the tea bags. Be careful not to break them! I do this by putting them into a cup and pressing them with a spoon. Pour the tea into a gallon size jar or pitcher. Add the stevia, then add water to fill the gallon. Chill.

We like to serve this over ice. image

I used to make this with 1 cup of loose, dried peppermint leaves. I find that these tea bags seem to be stronger, though.

I also used to, and sometimes still do, sweeten this with honey for my husband and kids. It takes a cup for a gallon.
