Strawberry Tofu Smoothie

For the uninitiated, don’t be scared of tofu. It’s not just that blob of goo sitting on a plate. I don’t like that stuff either. Tofu can be turned into so many wonderful and tasty things. I guarantee if you give this smoothie to someone who hated tofu, they would never know that it is the main ingredient. So don’t be afraid, this smoothie is a taste delight and is good for you.

250g firm tofu, chopped

200g or 1 3/4 cups of fresh strawberries, chopped and save some for garnish

3tbsp pumpkin seeds, save some for garnish

3tbsp clear honey

5 ice cubes

1 cup orange juice, (I used freshly squeezed)

Serves 2

Directions

– Put all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. You might have to scrape the mixture down from the sides to ensure it blends nicely.

– Pour into glass and sprinkle with your extra pumpkin seeds and strawberry chunks. Enjoy!
