Strawberry Arnold Palmer Smoothie

Strawberry Arnold Palmer Smoothie

  • 1/8 tsp Xantan Gum dissolved in 3 TB Hot Water
  • 2 tsp Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Stevia
  • 1 c. Iced Tea
  • 1 c. Ice
  • 3-4 Fresh Strawberries

Blend all ingredients on high in the blender until frothy.


  • Use strong iced tea. Mine was a little weak and the flavor could have been stronger.
  • Dissolve the Xanthan Gum beforehand. It will be lumpy otherwise.
  • Experiment with the amounts! These are an estimate of what I used- I don’t measure when I make smoothies, normally.


  • Be afraid to try a different twist! Pineapple instead of strawberries?  Honey instead of stevia? Frozen lemonade cubes instead of ice? Do it!
  • Serve this half-cold. Sipping after photographing? No thanks! Pop it in the freezer for a few if you need to to keep it nice and chilly.
  • Let the sugared rims on the glasses fool you. For photographic purposes only! ;)
