Tofu banana strawberry smoothie

16 Apr

I wasn’t so sure this breakfast smoothie would turn out well. Mainly because two of my first three ingredients were sketchy. And even as I added more ingredients, I wasn’t sure if this was going to work. I started with —

  • Tofu banana strawberry smoothie

    1 banana (I’m not much of a banana lover)

  • 5 frozen whole strawberries from the store (I’m partial to my hand-cut, sweated and frozen strawberries)
  • 12 filberts, soaked

Then I was stuck. What next? No inspiration, had I. Yogurt? No yogurt to be had, so instead I added —

  • 1/2 c of tofu (I’m a tofu-tolerator, not a tofu lover)
  • 1/3 c of half and half (gotta have a liquid to make it blend well)

But that was bland. It need tang, flavor and depth. So I added —

  • 2 honey tangerines, juiced
  • A dash of salt
  • A drop of vanilla

And that made it absolutely fantastic! Very smooth and creamy. Tasty in a gentle yet robust way. Yummy!
