Eucalyptus deglupta, or rainbow eucalyptus/Mindanao gum, is a tree native to the Philippines, and its colorful trunk only shows how truly magical this tree is. Eucalyptus tea is a traditional remedy for cough and asthma.

It has a slight menthol taste, and it is also known to help alleviate stress, but it must be consumed in very small amounts.

Ingredients: 

  • Eucalyptus leaves 
  • 1 cup of Water 
  • 2 fresh Oranges 
  • 1 cup Ice 
  • 2 Tbsp Milk 
  • 1 Tbsp Sweetener or Honey 
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Instructions:

  1. Steam the leaves for 30 seconds. This allows the leaves to soften up.
  2. Place the leaves in the freezer to rapidly cool them.
  3. Dry the leaves, then roll and twist each one.
  4. Once completely dry, grind the leaves, and place them in a sealed bag.
  5. To make a cup of eucalyptus tea, take about 1/4 tsp of dried leaves and infuse it in 1 cup of hot water.
  6. Before adding it to your smoothies, let it cool. Alternatively, you can place it in an ice tray to make tea ice cubes.
  7. To make the smoothie, combine peeled fresh oranges, ice, eucalyptus tea ice, milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract, and blend until smooth.
