This caffeine-filled yerba mate "tea" smoothie is a tropical blend of cold-brewed yerba mate, banana and other ingredients. It's especially easy to make in the morning if you cold-brew your yerba mate overnight.


Steps to Make It

  1. Break the peeled, frozen banana into a few pieces.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a blender.

  3. Blend until smooth, adding more liquid if needed.

  4. Serve immediately.
