Starting the new year with one smoothie a day is not a bad beginning. I like it even more than my kids are now old enough to make their favorite smoothie combination by themselves
They have been making smoothies for a few years, even my youngest one got into making them, and that means so much to me. Mostly because it is really, really hard to get 8 years old to eat healthily.
It is a great way to intake pure nutrition, especially first thing in the morning. We love food, and we eat all kinds of dishes fatty and nonfatty
I do not think there is a smoothie that I have not liked, but wanted to try this combo and it was very good. Of course, we all have our preferences so I will post more smoothies for you to try.
In the case of tofu concern, I know that some of you might think it is disgusting, but on the contrary, you cannot taste it at all
You just have to get yourself, preferably organic Soft/Silken Tofu, which is available in almost all grocery markets.
I got one that I assume most have in their store and that I use for all my tofu smoothie, which is Nasoya USDA Organic, non-GMO, no preservatives, gluten free Silken Tofu and this one are perfect for smoothies.
Pineapple Banana Tofu Smoothie
- 2/3 cup 157g Soft/Silken Tofu
- 5 FL ounces 1.5 dl. water
- 1 medium banana
- 1/2 cup 118g Pineapple (fresh)
Place all the ingredients in the blender/food processor and let it combine until texture is smooth. I cut fruits into slices/chunks as well as tofu so it can fit better before blending it.
You can add ice, but use about 2.5FL Oz water or milk.
Also, protein powder boosts/supplements, if you prefer, could be added as well as flaxseeds etc.
This makes 2 cups of smoothie. You can split it if you are willing to share. If you do not like tofu or do not have any add almond milk, soy milk or coconut milk if you want vegan, Lactose-Free and non-dairy option, or regular (low fat) milk. However, if you will add milk, skip the water. No need to add water, only 5 FL Oz of milk will be enough. I did NOT try it with canned pineapple. I think it will be fine to use it instead of fresh pineapple and a bit sweeter. You can even add a little bit of pineapple juice if you like sweeter smoothies. I did not add any sugar…it was sweet to me, but it’s up to you if you would like to add sweetener.
