I love rooibos tea, and I love raspberry tea, and I had a chocolate craving, so this drink was put together out of all of them today. Why decide between one or the other when you can have all of them together in one drink? So I did. It went well with my lunch, which was a personal size Peperoncini and Sausage Pizza.
The crust was made out of simple ingredients--Almond flour, egg, and cheese. That's as simple as it gets. Quick and easy to make. (That's the only kind of lunch I do after work).
You can hold it in your hands to eat, just like regular pizza. I've made a similar crust with coconut flour, which is also on my blog. This time I used almond flour. Both work well, and I like them both. So it's your choice.
CHOCOLATE RASPBERRY ICED TEA
2 cups boiling water
2 rooibos tea bags
2 raspberry tea bags
1 teaspoon cocoa -- (I used Special Dark)
