Yerba Mate Slushie
Serves: 2 servings
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 2-3 Tablespoons loose yerba mate tea (depending on how strong you like it)
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey or more to taste (use your favorite sweetener)
  1. Pour the hot water over the tea and steep for 5 minutes. Strain and allow to cool.
  2. Pour the cooled tea into an ice cube tray and freeze until solid.
  3. Place the tea ice cubes in a blender with almond milk and sweetener to taste. Blend until slushie! It will be spoonable at first, although you can enjoy it with a straw, but the slushie will start to melt and eventually turn into a liquid.
