Saturday morning I got in from a run and wanted a quick breakfast before heading to the farmer’s market. I was also making a grocery list and going through the refrigerator and cupboards to see what I did, and did not, have on hand. Oops, silken tofu, I forgot I had it. Seemed like a good time to try it in a smoothie.
JL’s Silky Strawberry Smoothie (PRINTABLE RECIPE)
- 1/2 cup silken tofu
- 1 cup fresh strawberries
- Half a banana
- 1 cup ice
- 1 t Ojio agave syrup
So flavorful! These days I’m pretty much using filtered water with hemp seeds or a little protein powder in my smoothies so this was such a nice alternative. The tofu not only provided the protein but it added a thickness that was delightful.
