Green Tea, Blueberry, and Banana Smoothies


In a small glass measuring cup or bowl, microwave water on high until steaming hot. Add the tea bag and allow to brew for 3 minutes. Remove the tea bag. Stir the honey into the tea until it dissolves.
In a blender with ice-crushing ability, combine the berries, banana, and soymilk.
Add the tea to the blender. Blend ingredients on ice crush or the highest setting until smooth. (Some blenders may require additional water to process the mixture.) Pour the smoothie into tall glasses and serve.

I like to use fresh blueberries when available. I do not add honey. Sometimes I use half of the banana.. Add tea if more liquid necessary. Good breakfast drink to wake up your brain.

  1. OOh, thanks for sharing. I've been making smoothies for breakfast this week- yogurt, OJ, frozen raspberries and protein powder- but the green tea would make an EXCELLENT replacement for the OJ. Plus green tea is so good for you, and has no calories. :)
