Artist's Cookbook: Fruit Tea Smoothies Courtesy of the Wild Moccasins

(photo by Grant Hickey)

Imagine rolling into Iowa to perform the last two days of a tour, knowing that you have a new album coming up (Skin Collision Past will be released May 21st) which will be followed by an American west coast romp (dates listed below). Now imagine these sunny thoughts are abruptly interrupted by a stupid bird. Such is the life of the Wild Moccasins, a Houston Texas indie band. Thankfully the members were alright. Cody Swann, (guitar/vocals) took a break from fixing the van to share a Moccasin favorite recipe. This Fruit Tea Smoothie is "perfect for the Texas heat." For more information (and more pictures of the damage the bird did) check out the band's Facebook, twitter, bandcamp, or myspace pages.

Wild Moccasin's Fruit Tea Smoothie
(printable version)

-A few bags of tea (any kind, we used honey vanilla tea)

-1 banana

-2 mangoes

-3 pineapple slices

-4 strawberries

-half cup of soy milk



1. Wash, peel, slice and chop all of the fruit and leave it in the freezer in a freezer bag overnight.

2. Boil a few bags of tea. Cool in the refrigerator for a few hours.

3. Place the fruit in the blender and begin to blend it a little, you won’t need any ice because the fruit will be frozen!

4. Pour 1 cup of tea and half a cup of soy milk and continue to blend until it’s complete.

5. Drink and enjoy.
