Strawberry – Green Tea Milk Shake



I’ve been making strawberry – green tea milk shake for Frederick many times this month, because, strawberries are cheap these days! I’m not sure if strawberries are in season (i've no idea really) but for a $2 for a pack of strawberry enough to make 3 tall glasses of very rich and yummy strawberry milk shake, I don’t really care whether it’s in season or not :-)


This is one of those drinks I’ve been making using water infused with tea as base, for one obvious reason: to make it a bit healthier compared to merely using plain water.



Ingredients:Strawberries – around 250 g.


Evaporated milk – 4 tbsp


Green tea water, cold – 750 ml


Sugar – 2 tbsp


* green tea water recipe, (see Tea Water for the recipe)

 
Preparation:


1.  Put the strawberries, sugar, and a small amount of green tea water in a blender then press pulse.  This will make a smoother strawberry puree.


2.  Add the rest of the ingredients and press the “min” button. Blend until all the ingredients are smoothly and well blended


Serve with ice cubes or as is.


Makes 2 servings .  Here’s the estimated Nutritional  values per serving based on the ingredients used:
