  • 2 bags of strawberry and mango tisane
  • three generous pinches of green tea leaves (or two bags of green tea)
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons maraschino cherry syrup (yes, from the jar!)
  • 1 cup cold milk (I used low fat but you can always use full fat)
  • 6 maraschino cherries stems removed
  • 6 ice cubes


  • Boil a cup of water.
  • Place the tisane bags in a cup.
  • Place the green tea leaves (or bags) in another cup.
  • Pour half a cup of hot water into each cup. Allow to steep for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the tisane bags from the cup. Press to get all the fruity goodness into the cup.
  • Strain the tea. Again, pressing the tea leaves (or bags) to get all the flavors.
  • Stir together the two brews and chill in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  • Pour the mixed brew into the blender. Add the sugar and maraschino cherry syrup. Pulse a couple of times to dissolve the sugar.
  • Pour in the milk. Pulse two times just to blend.
  • Add the cherries. Pulse a couple of times more to break up the cherries but NOT liquefy them. Do not overprocess. The bits of cherries in the milkshake is a good, goooood thing.
  • Divide the ice cubes between two sexy glasses. Pour in the milkshake.
