VeganMoFo IV: Peach Rooibos Goji Flurry – swell

VeganMoFo IV: Peach Rooibos Goji Flurry

Sorry for the unintended delay in posting there… life and work and other things prevented me from blogging.

I’ve got a little different direction today, an adaptation of an Ani Phyo recipe.  This “flurry” brings together two favorites for me: Ani Phyo (who has the loveliest simple raw recipes) and my memories of a peach rooibos tea that the Yogi brand used to make (it was called African Redbush Peach, and I haven’t seen it in years).  Because I didn’t have any fresh or dried apricots on hand, and I couldn’t drink 4 servings as the recipe made, I adjusted a few things in Ani’s recipe for an Apricot Rooibos Flurry from her new book Raw Food Essentials.  I also threw in some goji berries for good measure and the result was a delicious, ice-cold treat, although I chose to drink it as part of my breakfast on a chilly November morning (we still have snow on the ground from a strange and heavy storm over the weekend).  Rooibos has a lovely flavor that goes so well with peaches, and this is a great way to use leftover tea from a tea party or some sun tea from the warmer months.

Peach Rooibos Goji Flurry
adapted from Ani Phyo’s Raw Food Essentials
makes one serving

1 1/4 cups brewed, room-temperature or chilled rooibos tea
1/3 cup frozen (or fresh if it’s that time of year) peach slices; for me this was 5 slices
1 heaping tablespoon raw cashew nut pieces
1 large date, pitted
1 tablespoon goji berries
1/3 cup ice

In a blender, combine the tea, peaches, cashews, date, and goji berries and blend until smooth.  Add the ice and blend to desired consistency.  Serve immediately.

  1. This sounds delicious! I have yet to try rooibos tea…hopefully soon because it always sounds so good :)

  2. I would like tea better if it always looked like this! I’m not a fan of plain old hot tea, but throw some fresh fruit and ice and cashews in….yum!
