Tofu Banana Breakfast Smoothy

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Ilysse

I love this smoothy for breakfast. It's yummy, sweet and filling. The serving size on my container of tofu was 1/5 of the block. I looked up serving sizes and found that a serving of tofu is 1/4 cup. I usually just cut the block into 5 parts without measuring.

This was, interesting. Lol! I'm still trying to get used to it. This is my first real introduction to tofu and wheat germ. In the past I have never been a fan of tofu (for its texture), but thought because I was blending it, this might work. I used 1/4 of a block of soft tofu (couldn't figure out how to cut it into equal fifths) and I guess it looked about equal to 1/4 cup. I used sliced frozen organic banana, OJ with calcium, and since my wheat germ didn't have honey, I used 1 tsp honey. The balance of flavors was really good. The longer I sip this, the better I like it. :) I will probably make this again. I am intrigued by the addition of cranberry juice and may try that next time. Thank you for sharing this simple, healthy recipe Ilysse. This was a nice late afternoon snack on a very hot day. :) Made for My-3-Chefs June 2008, for my theme "Non-Dairy".

  5. This is also good with 1/2 cup OJ and 1/2 cup cranberry juice.
  6. Use the wheat germ with honey for extra sweetness.
  7. Some yogurt (about 1/2 cup) of your favorite flavor (I like blueberry) is a nice addition.
