Brighten Your Day with a Hibiscus Herbal Tea Smoothie

Brighten Your Day with a Hibiscus Herbal Tea Smoothie

I don’t know about you, but sunny days make everything seem better. On days I need a little extra sunshine in my life, I like to whip up a special smoothie with berries, Greek yogurt, and our Sunshine In a Cup hibiscus herbal tea.

Shiny, Happy Goodness

Okay, what’s so special about this smoothie? Let’s start with the tea. Hibiscus is high in Vitamin C, bioflavonoids, and beneficial minerals and can, according to a 2008 study by the USDA, help lower blood pressure. Calendula contains anti-inflammatory properties and is believed to have wonderful benefits for the skin as well as digestion.

Speaking of your guts, Greek yogurt is full of probiotics that are excellent for gut health — and much better than using ice cream in your smoothie. And let’s not forget the berries! Full of flavor, natural sweetness, and antioxidants, they’re the perfect complement to the tartness of hibiscus.

This drink makes a filling breakfast or snack and will give you a nice boost of energy on a dreary (or not so dreary) day. I bet you’re feeling brighter already!
