Apart from smoothies for breakfast, I usually also have some unsweetened black tea because it contains antioxidants that help speed metabolism and strengthen the immune system.

So when I came across a Greek yogurt smoothie recipe with black tea and fresh fruit, I just had to go and try it out.

Surprisingly, this smoothie is a pleasant mix of wonderful flavors. The tangy and fruity taste of the mixed berries and the creamy sour taste of the Greek yogurt is neutralized by the flavorful black tea.

I added an extra banana for a thicker consistency, and the ground flaxseed and chia seeds add to the texture.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup brewed black tea (cooled)
