How to Make Berry Hibiscus Green Tea with Coconut Milk
To make this very berry hibiscus tea, start by brewing one hibiscus tea bag with one green tea bag. You’ll need about two cups of water for this step.
Once the tea has finished brewing, combine it with one cup of berries and one to two teaspoons of stevia in a blender. Blend the mixture until smooth, then pour it over two glasses with ice.
Finally, in each glass, stir in a half-cup of unsweetened coconut milk along with one tablespoon of freeze dried berries. Grab a straw and enjoy this fabulous fruity drink!
Each serving of this Berry Hibiscus Green Tea with Coconut Milk contains just 68 calories. If you’re losing weight on the Nutrisystem plan, you can log it as half of a SmartCarb and one Extra in your NuMi app journal.
If you’re not a fan of hibiscus or green tea, feel free to omit the one you don’t enjoy and double up on the one that you do! You could also swap in a different type of unsweetened tea, such as white tea or oolong tea.
Choose the berries that you like the most! Try it with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or a mix of all three. Strawberry and kiwi are a great flavor pairing, too.
And don’t limit yourself to just berries: You can easily substitute a different fruit that you love. For example, you could make a tropical green tea by using two green tea bags with fresh and freeze dried pineapple instead of the berries. The pineapple and coconut milk combination is out of this world!
Watermelon is another tasty choice that would pair well with berries. Try the preparing the recipe using half watermelon and half berries.
Finally, the coconut milk in this recipe can easily be replaced with another non-dairy milk that you have on hand. Unsweetened oat milk, almond milk or cashew milk can be used instead. However, we do appreciate the sweet and tropical taste of coconut!
