    Raspberry Lemon Yerba Mate Smoothie Bowl

    This smoothie bowl is as refreshing as a cold pool at noon on a mid-summer day. Made with just four ingredients, it’s a blend of frozen fruit and zesty lemon with energizing yerba mate iced tea. Crushed graham crackers add a crunchy topping!

    I cuddle mugs all winter long, but when summer comes ’round I’m all about the iced drinks. While ice water is great mid soccer game, I like to have something with a little flavor with my meals. Iced tea is a great staple beverage to have on hand because it’s BYO water. Meaning you don’t have to buy it by the gallon to drink gallons. Tea leaves are very efficient!

    One Strong Tea

    Yerba mate came to be a favorite last year as I worked with Argentine Yerba Mate on developing some tea-inspired recipes. It has a flavor profile similar to green tea with an earthy finish. I like it steeped with some honey for sweetness.

    One cup of yerba mate contains 78 mg of caffeine, which is just a little less than the 85 mg that you get from a cup of coffee (if you stick to a small mug – who does that?!) and a bit higher than a cup of classic black tea. If you’re torn between tea and coffee because of their caffeine levels, yerba mate might be your answer!

    How To Brew It

    I use a French press (32 ounces) with 1/4 cup tea leaves in the bottom. I pour over hot-but-not-boiling water and let it steep for about 5 minutes. Press the leaves down and store the whole press in your fridge or transfer to a pitcher.

    A Zesty Smoothie Bowl, or Sorbet

    Another ingredient I’ve been obsessed with lately is lemon zest! I’ve been loving it in sauces, salads, and more. So when I was dreaming up flavors to incorporate into this bowl, lemon zest was at the top of my list.

    Call it a smoothie. Call it sorbet. The texture of this is silky-smooth and frozen.

    I dressed her up with crushed graham crackers aka “graham crumb” to sound fancy and a few edible rose flowers! Plus lemons and more zest, naturally.
