    Green Tea Smoothie

    This smoothie is really a cross between iced green tea and a green tea milkshake. If it isn’t sweet enough for your tastebuds, add another 1 to 2 Tbsp (15 to 30 mL) agave nectar. Matcha green tea powder is the entire green tea leaf that has been ground to a very fine consistency, resulting in higher concentrations of antioxidants. It is used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony and added to ice cream and sweets.

    1 cup (250 mL) frozen mango chunks, available in the frozen food section

    In a blender, whirl together the skim milk, matcha green tea powder, agave nectar, and frozen mango chunks until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve. Serves 2.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
