White peaches, white tea, and the fresh zing of parsley come together in a light green beverage with a lovely froth.
Tea can be raw—think sun tea. I put a large jar of water, freshly blessed, on my windowsill and added the white tea leaves to it. I live in Oakland and I have a large sunny south-facing window, so the effect was pretty intense.
Another route you could take to get the same effect would be to use fresh water mixed with shizandra berry powder or a mushroom extract like reishi.
Add a frozen banana to make this more of a cool smoothie for a hot summer day.
3 small peaches
3 cup white tea
1 cup curly parsley, destemmed
2 tablespoon honey or agave nectar
1 small leaf of kale
1 frozen banana, optional
Make the tea however you prefer. Make sure it’s at least as cool as room temperature before putting in the blender.
Blend ingredients in this order:
- All liquid ingredients
- Banana (if using)
Serve immediately, preferably next to a couple of leftover peaches, and with raspberries on the side. :)
