Blueberry Green Tea Smoothie

I saw this smoothie at Food.com and was kind of intrigued by the blueberry/green tea combination, wondering just what that would taste like. I had plenty of green tea on hand, some blueberries in my freezer, and vanilla yogurt in my fridge, so I didn’t have to buy a single thing to make this, which was nice! You do have to plan ahead a little before you make it though, because it works best if you brew the tea the night before and refrigerate it so it’s chilled in the morning.

I love the taste of this smoothie! It has a great blueberry flavor—you don’t really taste the green tea or flax seed in it. And it’s nice and thick because of the frozen blueberries and ice. I left out the almonds from the original recipe, but added some honey to make it a little sweeter. This recipe is for a large single serving or 2 small servings—if you need to make more, just multiply the ingredients by the number of servings you want to make!

BLUEBERRY GREEN TEA SMOOTHIE by NancyC, adapted from Food.com
Makes about 14 ounces (1 large serving or 2 small servings)

1 green tea bag (brew the tea the night before so it’s well-chilled in the morning)
1 cup frozen blueberries

1 Tablespoon honey
1 Tablespoon ground flax seed

The evening before making this, bring the 1/3 cup of water to a boil and pour over tea bag; steep 4 minutes. Squeeze and remove tea bag and discard. Chill tea in refrigerator overnight.

The next morning, place tea, blueberries, ice cubes, yogurt, honey, and flax seed in blender; process until smooth, and serve.

This was my first smoothie made with tea! Have you used green tea or any kind of tea in a smoothie before?
