Tofu Fruit Smoothie
|Title:||Tofu Fruit Smoothie|
Don't know if you're "into" soy, but...here's a recipe I do "countless" variations on, especially during the summer months. If you use a FROZEN banana (peeled and cut into large chunks before freezing) the Smoothie consistency will be pleasingly like a shake! (I found this recipe on Nasoya's website, my only change is that I actually use less tofu - I've adjusted the recipe below accordingly.)
1/4 (12.3 ounce) package Silken Tofu
1/2 medium ripe banana
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup honey
3/4 cup fresh or frozen strawberries or fruit of choice
1 cup ice
Blend together tofu, banana, orange juice, honey, and fruit until smooth. Add ice, then continue to blend until creamy. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 servings.
VARIATIONS: Sometimes instead of tofu I use about 1/2 cup of soy milk or soy yogurt. - LuAnn
