Mango Green Tea Custard Smoothie

Makes 2 servings


3 bags green tea (or 1 tbsp loose tea)
1 cup half-and-half (10%) cream
2 tbsp granulated sugar, divided
3 egg yolks
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 mangoes
1/2 cup milk

1. In small saucepan, over medium heat, heat tea bags, cream and 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the sugar until steaming, bubbles form around the edge and tea is fragrant, about 3 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk egg yolks with the remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar. In a thin stream, whisk hot tea mixture into yolk mixture. Stir back into pan and cook, stirring constantly, until thick enough to coat the spoon, about 5 minutes.

3. Strain into a clean bowl and stir in vanilla. Place plastic wrap directly on surface of custard and let cool. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, until cold, or for up to 3 days.

4. Peel, pit and chop mangoes. Scrape chilled custard into blender and add mangoes and milk; purée on high speed.

This is like an unfrozen mango milkshake, flavored with tea. You can use any tea, but green tea goes particularly nicely with the mango.
