The warm weather makes it a perfect time to get refreshed with a cool drink. But instead of grabbing a sugar-laden soda or juice, consider making a homemade tofu smoothie instead. Making smoothies yourself lets you control the ingredients to create more nutritionally-sound drinks. Simply pick out your favorite fruits and veggies and blend them with tofu like organic Nasoya’s Silken Tofu for an extra punch of protein while reducing fat and cholesterol.
Try these easy and healthy tofu smoothie recipes for a slimmed down but satisfying drink. For tofu smoothie newbies, don’t worry, there’s no strong tofu taste. It takes on the flavor of the ingredients it’s combined with. The tofu just makes the smoothie extra smooth while providing vegetable protein to keep you feeling full.
