When you really want iced tea but you’re also kinda craving a smoothie, put them together and gulp it down! This raspberry iced tea smoothie is an incredibly easy recipe made with fresh fruits, orange juice and a hint of lime juice.

The result is a perfectly gorgeous iced tea smoothie that is wonderful to sip on in the evening or on lounging weekends with friends and family.
How to Make Raspberry Iced Tea Smoothie
I start out with a pitcher of brewed iced tea. I found a Raspberry one from Community Coffee that tastes great without being too sweet, so I used that here. You can brew your own iced tea or buy some pre-made ones. Then for the smoothie, I used freshly squeezed orange juice, freshly squeezed lime juice and fresh raspberries.
While I’m preparing the smoothie, I like to stick the glasses I’m using for the smoothie in the freezer just for 5 minutes until they get cold and frosted. It adds to the appeal of the drink.
Then I pour the smoothie purees into the glasses, and top them with the iced tea.
It’s such a simple delicious recipe that has a refreshing taste – you’ll want to have this all summer long!
Iced Tea Smoothie Variations
The cool thing about this iced tea smoothie is it’s actually a concept of how to mix two beverages into one. So if you don’t like raspberry iced tea, try green tea, or regular black tea or another variety you like. Also, for the smoothie portion, you can totally change it up too! Here are two of my favorite smoothies that would go great with any iced tea you choose:
