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.

    This is a great recipe. I just tried it. I love that it has fruit and antioxidants but relatively low carb/sugar. I was short on time so I just used strawberries instead of three different fruits and it worked great. I also eyeballed it and cut it down to one serving.
