Berry Hibiscus Tea Smoothie
This post is sponsored by Lipton tea.
I make smoothies a lot. My parents got me a Vitamix for my 22nd birthday and I can honestly say I’ve used it multiple times a week ever since. But it’s sad how infrequently I switch up my smoothie game! Sure, sometimes I’ll go for a peach cobbler smoothie or a fruity chia smoothie but I tend to gravitate towards a fruit + almond milk + protein source equation.
But not today. We’re doing something new! I recently had the opportunity to try some of Lipton’s newest teas and let me just say, I fell in love.
While I’m not here to pick favorites, I have to say that I gravitated toward the berry hibiscus flavor. I was enjoying it in the afternoon at work and I found that I still wanted to finish my cup, even when the tea had cooled down. It’s packed with real ingredients and the blend is perfect. That got me thinking… why can’t I use tea in my smoothies?
Turns out, there is no reason why not! So this berry hibiscus tea is the base of this deliciously fruity smoothie!Print

Perk up your morning smoothie with hibiscus tea! It’s a great way to add flavor without added sugar.
- 1 bag of Lipton Berry Hibiscus Tea
- 3/4 cup water
- 1 cup‘ frozen mixed berries (strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, & raspberries)
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1 handful of ice
- Bring 3/4 cup of water to a boil and steep the tea.
- I let my tea bag sit in the water for about 3 minutes and then I discarded the tea bag and let the water cool down.
- Once my tea was at room temperature (you could pop it in the fridge if you need to speed things up) and then added everything to my blender and blended until smooth.

Normally I add a bit of stevia to my smoothies but this one was sweet enough without anything extra! The fruit is the perfect natural sweetener and the tea adds flavor rather than just watering things down.
The weather was oddly warm over the weekend so this was a nice, refreshing snack! Now the possibilities are swirling through my head… a lemon ginger green tea smoothie? Maybe an energizing black tea with orange? Looks like I have more smoothie making ahead of me.
I love that you mentioned what herbal tea is and how it usually is because it is blended from portions of plants. My husband and I are looking for a cold and flu herbal tea that we can get for our health kick that we’ve been on. We will keep these tips in mind as we search for a professional that can help us best.coffee

This looks so refreshing and SUPER simple! I never thought to add tea to my smoothies! My kids and I love berries so I’ll definitely have to try this out on them too!
I never even considered adding tea to my smoothie! But now that you mention it the idea sounds really great! I don’t know why I never thought of that before! I need to try adding tea to my next smoothie! 🙂
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
