Easy Fruit and Tea Smoothie

by Rebekahcooked up on August 18, 2011

This smoothie is inspired by an excellent margarita I had this weekend – a hibiscus tea flavored one.  As I learned on the Celestial Seasonings tour, hibiscus is one of the most-used ingredients in tea. But I picked this tea because it is specifically a hibiscus-flavored one – often in “zingers” and whatnot it can be a background player.

For two 8 oz smoothies, you will need:

–          1 cup of chopped strawberries
–          1 cup of pitted and chopped cherries (I used Ranier – sour might be a little too, well, sour)
–          1.5 cups (ish) of ice
–          ½ cup of plain yogurt
–          2 bags of Tazo Passion tea (but – you could use any tea! Pick your favorite that isn’t black.)

If there is a better, easier, sweet summer treat, I haven’t found it.

 

Chop up your strawberries….

Make sure you get all of the pits and stems out of your cherries…

Then cut open two bags of tea – it’s basically a premade herbal seasoning.  You can eat them, I promise.

Dump it all in the blender and mix it around a bit so the blades can get some liquid and some ice. Then take it for a spin, as AB would say.

And enjoy.
