Try this black tea and mango smoothie something different, complex
This smoothie tastes like nothing I’ve tried before. It has a very distinct tea essence and I personally love it.
With four simple ingredients, this smoothie is a breeze.
For as easy as it is to make, the flavor profile is quite complex.

It's all about that base
We make a smoothie or green juice (demo) most mornings. Which means we have to get creative to keep it interesting.
Most often, we use water or almond milk as a base. We’ve also experimented with kombucha, green tea, and coconut milk.
This time I decided to use iced black tea. It’s got some caffeine, less than coffee, but still has a kick. And it has a distinctly “summer” taste to me. So it sounded like the perfect base for a full-bodied mango smoothie.
This smoothie was without a doubt refreshing, summery, and gave me a jolt of energy. It’s like a gourmet version of a mango Arnold Palmer.
Make one on a hot summer morning. It’s invigorating!
