This past weekend my cousin/best friend, The White Queen (I haven’t come up with a better name for her yet.) and I drove up to Salem Ma. Salem has a history of being a sort of mecca for witches and folklore. We wanted to walk around this cute little town since it was such a beautiful day. We checked out some of the shops and stoped in to see a psychic. I was totally surprised at some of what this woman told me. She was on the money for sure. It was shocking. If you’re in the area you should stop in yourself.
My cousin also wanted me to try a smoothie at a bistro that she loved. I wasn’t exactly in the mood for a smoothie, so we shared one. From my first sip of this smoothie my world changed completely. It was smooth and thick like ice cream. And since I'm crazy for ice cream and always have some in my fridge, I was hooked!
Lazy Girl: “Oh my goodness what is in this?!?”
The White Queen: “Tofu...that’s what gives it it's texture.”
Over the years, I have been consuming less and less of tofu since it is so processed. When I was a vegetarian and vegan, tofu was certainly an important part of my diet. Now, when I am looking for a vegetarian meal, I stick to clean proteins such as beans. I may have to make an exception for this smoothie. I could be adding tofu to every smoothie I make from now on. It’s delicious!
Berry Tofu Smoothie
Cranberry Juice/water (I adjusted the amount of cranberry juice since it contains so much sugar)
Mix together in blender and enjoy!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Tofu Smoothie - One of my favorite flavors for ice cream is peanut butter cup. So I thought I would try this on for size. A healthier version when you need an ice cream fix.
Chocolate Almond Milk
Blend in blender and enjoy!
