To kick things off here at JustineCelina, I thought I would share a recipe for one of my most popular Instagram photos. I came up this this recipe during an intense flowering hibiscus tea drinking phase earlier this winter. Hibiscus tea always reminds me of the time I’ve spent in Huatulco Mexico, where hibiscus flowers grow wild. I’m transported back to that place every time I take a sip! In Mexico, the dried hibiscus flowers used to make this tea are known as “Jamaica” (pronounced hah-mike-ah). This smoothie is inspired by an Agua de Jamaica drink I enjoyed during my last trip.

I learned a bit about the health benefits of hibiscus tea from our server the first time I ordered Agua de Jamaica in Huatulco. He said it was good for the body and helped to aid in digestion. It turns out hibiscus tea is also good for your heart, blood pressure, circulation and it’s a powerful cold-fighter. This Super C Hibiscus Berry Smoothie is fresh, tart and velvety. It’s also bursting with tons of vitamin C, antioxidants and refreshing citrus flavours.

• 1 orange
• 1 cup frozen mixed berries
Juice from 1/4 a lemon
• 2 medjool dates
• 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
• 1/2 cup cold, strong hibiscus tea
• Dash of cinnamon


Prepare your tea beforehand (for strong tea, steep overnight) and allow to cool completely before adding to your smoothie. Combine all ingredients in your Vitamix (or similar) and blend until smooth. Garnish with cinnamon, frozen cranberries or orange segments and serve.
