Blackberry Honey Green Tea Smoothie

I have never been a big fan of breakfast foods. I'll eat sausage, pancakes, or cereal, but I've always preferred to sit down with a big bowl of pasta. (If possible, I would live solely off of pasta. Yum.) Since that's not exactly the healthiest thing, smoothies are my go-to healthy breakfast. 

This recipe is perfect for a busy weekday morning. Just throw some ingredients in a blender, and bam! Two healthy, delicious smoothies! 

Blackberry Honey Green Tea Smoothies


-1 cup ice
-1 cup milk
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup blackberries
-1/4 teaspoon green tea leaves OR matcha powdered green tea
-1/2 to 1 teaspoon honey


Put ingredients in blender. Blend for 2 minutes or until smooth. If desired, sprinkle a few tea leaves on top for garnish. Serve.

Pretty easy, am I right?!

The reason why I did a range of measurements for the blackberries and honey is that in the winter, blackberries will probably be a bit more sour, so less blackberries will be used and more honey; whereas in the summer, you can use more berries and less honey. It's really up to how you like it!!

Bon appetit!
