Smoothies – Fruity Rooibos

What better way to start off the month of June, and a Monday morning, than with a delicious, healthy smoothie?

I’ve written before about the great health benefits of drinking Rooibos tea before – use the search function, just type in ‘Rooibos’ and you’ll find more recipes.  Since this tea is naturally caffeine free, healthy, refreshing, soothing, and a lovely colour; it can be added to many of our daily meals, and drinks!

I often add Rooibos to fruit smoothies, rather than adding milk or water, since it adds a lovely flavour.
