    5 minutes

  • Yield:
    1 Serving 1x


This delicious smoothie will give you just the right amount of energy to get through the mid-day slump. The small amount of caffeine, abundant probiotics, and nutrients work together to nourish your body and mind.



  • 1 cup blueberries, frozen
  • 1⁄2 cup kombucha, black tea
  • 1⁄2 frozen banana
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh-squeezed lime juice (approximately one lime)


  1. Put fresh blueberries and a halved banana in the freezer for three to five hours. Once frozen, remove the fruits from the freezer and continue with the recipe.
  2. Combine 4 ounces of black tea kombucha and fresh lime juice.
  3. Put the kombucha and banana in a blender. Blend the mixture for 10 seconds.
  4. Add the blueberries and blend for another 10 seconds.
  5. Pour the smoothie into a serving glass.
  6. Garnish with chia seeds, fresh mint leaves, banana slices, or cashews. (Optional)
  7. Enjoy!


If you don’t have frozen fruits, use fresh ones. Just remember that the smoothie will have a more juice-like consistency.

Use green or oolong tea kombucha if you don’t have black tea. Consider using a flavored base, such as ginger kombucha, for even more flavor.

Lemon juice is a suitable substitute for lime if that’s what you have available.

What Are the Health Benefits of a Blueberry Lime Kombucha Smoothie?

Kombucha is a fermented tea known for its high volume of live cultures and probiotics. These gut-friendly bacteria promote digestion and even boost your immune system. The addition of fresh fruits increases the already-present health benefits.


  • Boost energy levels due to high carbohydrate content
  • Aid digestion
  • Support heart health due to potassium
  • Can enhance mood because they contain tryptophan (which eventually gets converted to serotonin)


Fresh lime juice:

  • Boosts immune function due to vitamin C
  • Contains anti-inflammatory compounds
  • Have electrolytes, which promote hydration
  • Stimulate digestive enzymes

How Much Caffeine Is In a Blueberry Lime Kombucha Smoothie?

A half cup of black tea kombucha contains approximately 4-8 mg of caffeine. This amount is so minimal; you don’t need to worry about it keeping you up at night. You may feel an energy boost from the probiotics and nutrients but not much from the caffeine.

Should You Make This Recipe with Young, Sweet Kombucha or Older, Sour Kombucha?

A younger kombucha variant works best for this recipe. The sweetness of young kombucha cuts through the lime juice’s sharpness and the blueberries’ tartness, making it all blend more seamlessly.

If your kombucha brew is older and sourer, you may use that (and the accompanying SCOBY) as a new starter tea to develop a fresh batch of kombucha. This way, you’re ensuring nothing goes to waste.
