If you would like to add some soy protein to your diet, this is a great smoothie--a really good way to get two serving of protein at one time. I am not vegetarian, just trying to eat healthy, so I use powdered milk and water, but you could substitute soy milk. I used firm tofu and it still turned out very smooth. It's a very versatile snack or meal-on-the-go.
- 4 ounces peaches or 4 ounces pears or 4 ounces pineapple or 4 ounces fruit cocktail or 4 ounces frozen bananas or 4 ounces strawberries or 4 ounces cranberry sauce or 4 ounces applesauce (whatever you like--I like to use the little plastic containers for kid's lunch boxes, that have been)
- 3 ounces silken tofu or 3 ounces firm tofu, drained.
- 3 tablespoons dry milk, plus
- 4 ounces water (OR 4 ounces of soymilk)
- 3 tablespoons sugar or 3 tablespoons other artificial sweetener (or to taste, depending on fruit, I use Splenda)
- 2 ice cubes, can be added and use 1 less ounce of water to make it slushy (optional)
- Dump all ingredients in blender.
- Do not thaw fruit.
- Use pulse feature of blender until fruit is crushed and smooth.
- Use liquify feature of blender for about 2 minutes to liquify and aerate the smoothie.
- Pour in pretty glass and enjoy your delicious protein!
I make these smoothies all the time. They are nutritious and delicious. My favorites are with strawberries or an orange which must be pureed to grind up the pulp.
