*So much better than a creamsicle* This was my first time trying tea in a smoothie and what a tasty way to get some antioxidants! My store didn't have Stash Orange so I used Snapple Orange-inality tea bags along with the Stash Peppermint. I couldn't detect the peppermint so will omit it next time. I used Edy's Orange Cream (orange sherbet with lowfat vanilla ice cream swirled in it) and knew that would make it sweet enough, so omitted the honey. This recipe is perfect for two to share. What a delight to make for the Photo Tag Game.
