Blueberry Green Tea Smoothie

blueover1

bluesmoothiecloseSometimes I need to be punched in the gut with a round of antioxidants. I’ve been on a binge of eating crappy foods that are high in sugar and other refined nastiness,  and I need to feel better. STAT. This is what I make when I’m looking to sip on something as a sort of detox for my evil ways (sorry, body, I love you still….). The blueberries combined with the green tea make it full of good-for-you awesomeness, and the flax seeds are a lovely extra boost of healthy goodness. Similar to my Glowing Skin Smoothie, this would be great for breakfast with a hard boiled egg or some other type of protein.

blueberriesYou will need:

  • 1.5 – 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1.5 – 2 cups green tea (I make mine right when I wake up, then let it cool)
  • 1-2 tbsp. ground flax seed

Optional:

  • 1/2 banana
  • 1-2 tbsp. hemp seeds

Blend that sucker and enjoy it’s very subtle, refreshing flavour. Also, because there’s a ton of blueberry in this – don’t forget to check your teeth for skins after you’re done (unless you’re going for that ‘teeth are missing’ look).

      Thank you very kindly, my dear! Once my schedule with school slows down a little bit, I will be sure to check this out. 🙂

      Ha, I only said it because it happened to me! I went to work and had coworkers comment not once, but twice about giant chunks of blueberry skin in my teeth…
