Smoothie – A peach of a Smoothie!

Making smoothies just the way you like them, in your own kitchen is one way to ensure that what you’re drinking (and eating) is 100% gluten-free! If you have a blender, then it’s easy to whip up your favourite flavours in no time at all. Today’s smoothie is made using Rooibos tea.  Rooibos, a South African herbal tea, is very beneficial to one’s health, and can be added not only to smoothies, but also to many other dishes to add a wonderful flavour that is naturally caffeine free.
