Cherry-Berry Tea Smoothies
Protein-rich tofu gives this drink a thick and creamy texture, and frozen blueberries, cherries, and grapes deliver deep flavor and additional antioxidants. Rooibos tea, grown in South Africa, adds an herbaceous sweetness to this fruit smoothie without the caffeine found in other teas.
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 Rooibos tea bags
- 6 ounces silken tofu
- 10 ounces (2 cups) frozen sweet cherries
- 6 ounces (1 cup) frozen grapes
- 3 ounces (1/2 cup) frozen blueberries
Bring water to a simmer. Immediately remove from heat, and add tea bags. Let steep, uncovered, for 8 minutes. Discard tea bags. Refrigerate tea until cold, about 40 minutes.
Puree tea, tofu, and fruit in a blender until smooth, and serve cold.
