August 'Creamsicle' Smoothies

A fragrant and tasty pick-me-up for these hot August days... It makes me think of the creamsicles on the old ice cream trucks that prowled our neighborhoods many years ago.

5 orange spice tea bags
1 peppermint tea bag
1 cup boiling water
1½ cups orange juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup vanilla ice cream (or vanilla frozen yogurt)
1 cup ice

Put the tea bags in the boiling water, remove from heat; steep 4-5 minutes. Let cool.

Pour tea in a blender, add OJ, honey, ice cream and ice. Mix until fully blended. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint, and for fun... use one of those old glass swizzle sticks you have in a drawer somewhere!
