This metabolism boosting tea is creamy and reminds me a lot of an iced chai tea with a kick. You’ll want to drink the THM shrinker just because it tastes good, but while you’re enjoying your tea, your body will be working hard at speeding up your metabolism and shrinking fat cells.
The cat’s out of the bag.
So the secrets out. I’ve been following the THM plan for awhile now. In case you aren’t familiar, THM stands for Trim Healthy Mama. Have you heard of it?
So it’s not really a secret, but I was feeling a little, let’s say, ‘uncomfortable’ in my pants. I feel I need to insert my disclaimer right here. Because if you know me in person, you know I’m a petite sized person. And no one would ever think that I looked like I needed to drop any pounds.

This wasn’t about how I looked to others, it’s about how I felt in my skin (and my pants). There, disclaimer said! The result? I’m 17 pounds lighter! You guys! I didn’t even know I had that much extra on me! I was going for 8 pounds.
I’ll see if I can give you a brief synopsis on the Trim Healthy Mama. This plan is more about how you pair your foods together than cutting a bunch of stuff out.
Now, yes, you do need to cut some things out. That’s pretty standard if you’re trying to change your body. But I’ve found that I really don’t miss my old ways, because the benefits far outweigh my old habits.
Also, there are some excellent substitutions so I didn’t have to compromise my ‘real food’ philosophy.All eating plans take awhile to adjust to, and this one does too. But I’d say it’s well worth it!
This tea is one of my favorite things to sip on during the day. I love it! I sip it by the pool in the summer, I sip it by the fire in the winter, I sip it while I’m running kids around. I sip it when the holidays are near and when the holidays are here (sorry for going all Dr. Seuss on you).
I was drawn to the THM Shrinker for it’s metabolism boosting benefits, but I’ve stayed with it because it’s just SO tasty! It’s that good.
Keep things easy
To keep this recipe extra easy, I always brew a bunch of the tea and keep it in a mason jar in my fridge. Then it’s ready to go and I’m not spending extra time brewing and cooling.
You need Oolong tea for this recipe. You can find it at your local health food store, or here’s a link.
I have these fun mason jar lids with straws set so I don’t have to refill my 1 serving. It makes a quart!
THM Shrinker Recipe
- 1 cup brewed and cooled double strength oolong tea see notes
- 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 2 pinches of mineral salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons Truvia
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch of cayenne pepper
Add the brewed tea along with all the other ingredients to a blender.
Blend the tea until well combined.
Fill a quart sized mason jar (all the way to the top) with ice.
Pour the tea over ice. If there is more room in your glass, add a bit of water.
Oolong tea can be found at your local health food store.
THM has their own brand of sweeteners. I often use the Super Sweet Blend, but if you don't have their special ingredients, Truvia is on plan and works great. I use plenty of it in other recipes. Just make sure you get the Truvia packets or small container--NOT the baking blend, which contains sugar.
I brew multiple bags of tea in a mason jar so I always have it on hand. The tea is double strength, so just keep that in mind if you do a large batch. You need 2 tea bags per 8 oz water.
This makes one quart, which is technically 1 serving.
If you want to learn more about the Trim Healthy Mama Plan, I would highly recommend you read the books. One book gives you all the detailed information about the plan, and the other is a cookbook that you will want! The THM Shrinker comes from this cookbook.
