Earl Grey Tea

Earl Grey Tea and Orange Sherbet Milk Shake

 

When I lived in Brooklyn, I loved going to Van Leeuwen’s for their Earl Grey ice cream. I miss it. One day, I was bored and creative and made a delicious milkshake that kinda resembles the flavor of that ice cream. BTW, Earl Grey tea has bergamot which is a citrus fruit like an orange, so I thought the orange sherbet would go well and it did.  I initially published this on Cucumbertown, but since they are shutting down, I am reposting here.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Earl Grey Tea bag of Twinings
  • 8 oz of  Almond milk
  • 2 scoops of Orange sherbet
  • 1 Frozen banana
  • 1/2 tablespoon of orange zest

Directions:

Use a small saucepan to brew tea in almond milk for 5 minutes.Chill tea in the fridge before adding to the blender Place frozen banana, orange zest, sherbet in

Place frozen banana, orange zest, sherbet in a blender. Add tea and blend using the smoothie button. For stronger tea flavor, brew for longer.

PS. Here’s a recipe for making your own Earl Grey Ice Tea ice cream.
