This recipe comes from Prevention Magazine. It was about how to boost your fat burn. Green tea gives your metabolism an extra jolt and so give this a try for those of you who are breakfast skippers. Or for those of us who just like these flavor combinations:-)

I cut recipe in half, I used probably 6 to 8 oz of water making the green tea. I found it to be very tasty, was reading other reviews I used non fat vanilla yogurt 3/4 cup I don't know if that was too much. But i enjoyed it.
