Ingredients

  • 1½ cup (360 ml) brewed citrus green tea, chilled
  • 1 lemon, ends trimmed and discarded, remainder cut into 4 equal slices (about 1/2 inch [13 mm] each
  • ¼ cup (60 g) granulated sugar
  • 2 cups (260 g) ice cubes

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and securethe lid.
  2. Select the lowest setting. Start the machine, slowly increase to its highest speed, and blend for 30 seconds.

Notes

The center of each lemon slice will be extracted, leaving the rind fully intact. Also, the drink will be conveniently both mixed and chilled in one easy blending action.
