natural superfood smoothie

I bought kelp meal awhile ago from Ecollegy with stars in my eyes: "it's so full of minerals!!". But actually I hate seaweed. So here is my compromise:

Boil 250 mL of water in the kettle. Pour this over 4 tbsp of kelp meal and 2-4 tbsp green tea (for extra antioxidants). Cover immediately and let steep for at least one hour. Let cool completely, then strain out solids. Tea will be very strong.

In a blender, put 1 banana, 1 peach, a handful of blueberries, a small handful of flax seeds, some yogurt, kefir or coconut milk, and your crazy tea mixture. Blend it until no chunks remain. Taste - if you need it sweeter, use raw honey or some dates. If you really want to go all out, throw in some freshly peeled ginger and/or oats. Add peanuts or other nuts if you want... mmm peanut butter. Drink it cold.
