Under 150 Calories: Christmas Tea Thick Shake


Celestial Seasonings (available at iHerb - use my discount code NDW884 to save $10) has a range of teas just for this time of year. There's Candy Cane Lane, which I'm using today, that has a nice and subtle peppermint/candy cane taste to it, in addition to Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride, Nutcracker Sweet, Sugar Plum Spice and Cinnamon Apple. These teas are gluten free, caffeine free and contain zero calories.


Just because it's stinking hot in Australia doesn't mean we can't still sit down and enjoy these flavoursome Christmas teas.

Ingredients - 

1 Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane teabag
200ml of Almond Milk (or your milk of choice)
120g 2% Fat Plain Chobani Greek Yogurt (Use coconut yogurt to make this vegan)
1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 Natvia sachet


Directions - 

  1. Take your Candy Cane Lane tea bag and submerge in the almond milk. Cover and place in the fridge overnight for the flavours to develop.
  2. Mix the Natvia and vanilla extract into the Chobani. Divide into an ice cube tray and place in the freezer overnight.
  3. The next day, take everything out of the fridge and freezer and chuck into a blender. Pulse until well combined and pour into your Christmas mug of choice.
