Healthy Blackberry Mint Green Tea

It’s finally FRIDAY! I know everyone is ready for this long week to be over! I’ve been needing a little energy pick me up to get me through so I decided to make some blackberry mint green tea. I absolutely love regular green tea. It’s so yummy and good for your health. It’s even been shown to help you burn fat. Yay bonus!!

Blackberry Mint Green Tea

Changing up your regular green tea with some blackberries and mint is fantastic!

This time, all I had was frozen black berries and they worked just fine but I think fresh black berries would be even better.

I made enough for just one cup of the tea but it would be easy to just increase the recipe and make an entire pitcher for a party or to keep in your fridge.

I would love to say that I used mint that I grew in my herb garden. Unfortunately, that was very not the case. I have successfully killed my herb garden 4 years in a row now.

To start this tea I put my frozen berries in the microwave long enough that they are soft. Then, I smashed those berries in the bottom of the glass along with a few mint leaves. (Hint: if you “spank” the mint before you put it in the glass it helps it to release more of it’s awesome flavor).

After that all you have to do is make your green tea like you normally would. After the tea is done I added ice and a few more frozen black berries to cool down the tea.

Personally I prefer cold tea but this one would probably be yummy hot as well.
