Blueberry Black Tea Smoothie | Steeped

5 from 1 reviews


  • 1 cup brewed and cooled English breakfast tea
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup peeled, cooked, and chopped red beets (see note)
  • 1/2 banana
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup cranberry juice
  • 4 ice cubes
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Combine ingredients in a blender in the order listed. Blend until smooth and add more ice if desired. Taste and adjust sweetness by adding more maple syrup.


*I'm kind of lazy when it comes to beets and most stores around me sell precooked, peeled, organic beets (perfect for smoothies).

*Annelies also recommends freezing the cranberry juice into ice cubes- I, however, didn't read this until I was most of the way through making the smoothie and went with just the cranberry juice (and works well!)
