Tips for making Easy Berry Quick Iced Tea Smoothies
This berry blast smoothie recipe is very flexible.
Berries: Instead of mixed frozen berries, you could use frozen blueberries, strawberries, or raspberries.
Juices: Try different fruit juices in your Easy Berry Quick Iced Tea Smoothie recipe. (Watch for added sugars!)
Or to health it up even further, use one of the “lite” orange juices from the supermarket.
(You can make your own “lite” OJ by watering down regular orange juice and adding a little stevia or monk fruit.)
Tea: Read Does tea go bad? to learn if your tea bags are nice and fresh before brewing.
As a short cut, use 2 cups of already made unsweetened iced tea. I make my own using Lipton Iced Tea Gallon Size Tea Bags.
Seltzer: You could also try a variety of flavored seltzer when making frozen berries smoothie recipes.
I like coconut flavored seltzer, but berry flavored seltzer is a natural fit in this berry smoothie recipe.
If you run out of seltzer, I won’t tell if you substitute a diet ginger ale. Probably quite tasty!
How to thicken this smoothie
To thicken this Easy Berry Quick Ice Tea Smoothie recipe, add some ice cubes to the blender before adding the seltzer. Pulse until the ice cubes are pulverized.
Feel free to add a scoop or two of your favorite protein powder to this tea smoothie recipe. I like having some protein in the morning as it helps me feel fuller throughout the day.
(I stick to eggs since they’re naturally gluten free and dairy free.)
You could also add some Greek yogurt for a protein boost if you can tolerate the dairy.
