I put everything in my blender but the tea and kept thinking "this is not going to work." I used frozen peaches and only 1 cup frozen strawberries because I didn't imagine I could fit anymore in my blender. So I poured the hot tea in and the whole thing sort of melted immediately. Then I turned it on and these layers of fruit just collapsed onto each other in 1 swift motion. It was so cool! I wish I had streaming video to show you! So it was wonderful to make (the kids and I really enjoyed it. They put the layers in and then we watched together.) but how did it taste? Wonderful! Really so much better then I ever expected! This will be a regular pick-me up around here. Thanks!!!
