This is a clever little recipe I found on Tablespoon.com.  Nick, the author, who also runs the Macheesmo blog, says the key to this one is ingredients with subtle flavors which won’t overpower the green tea.  Regular milk is fine to use but Nick suggests almond milk as a complementary flavor.  Here’s a recipe for it.

1/2 cup almond milk
1/3 cup plain yogurt
1 cup fresh honeydew (seeds are fine to use – protein!)
2 tbsp. honey or agave nectar
2 cups green tea, strongly brewed, then frozen

Steep two cups of boiling water with 2 green tea bags for at least 15 minutes.  Pour into ice trays and freeze.  When frozen, place all ingredients in blender, adding “green tea ice” last and run on High speed for 30 to 40 seconds (“Whole Juice” cycle with a Blendtec).
