Table of Contents
This fruity tofu smoothie is made of simple ingredients, and there is some room to be creative. Check out the list below for easy substitutes.
Silken tofu is a great choice, as it’s a soft tofu type. It will result in a very creamy texture with little blending.
Don’t let having firm tofu though hold you from trying this recipe.
If you use extra firm tofu you may need to blend it with milk first, before you add other ingredients. If you have a powerful high speed blender that won’t be necessary.
Tofu packs 17 grams of protein per 3.5 oz / 100g, and provides all essential amino acids. It’s perfect both for those who want to lose weight as well as build muscle mass.
Use fresh or frozen fruit. Be creative or go for your favorite smoothie combination.
For weight loss use berries: strawberries, blueberries, blackberries or raspberries.
For weight gain go for banana, avocado or dried fruit like dates or figs.
PLANT BASED MILK
My favorite plant milk for smoothies is almond milk or soy milk. You can go for oat or coconut milk too, or even an orange juice for a more fruity flavor.
CINNAMON – helps us regulate our blood sugar
TURMERIC and LEMON JUICE – boosts our metabolism
CHIA SEEDS – provide plenty of fiber, extra protein and healthy fats
PEANUT BUTTER – adds healthy fats and delicious nutty flavor

How to Make Best Tofu Smoothie
Drain and press the tofu to get rid of excess liquid if possible. If you are using silken tofu it might be difficult. Place it on a plate and wait for the liquid to gather beneath the block of tofu.
Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth and creamy.
Serve immediately or pour into an airtight container as on-the-go breakfast.
Questions & Answers
Can You Taste Tofu In A Smoothie?
No, tofu naturally has a very mild, neutral taste anyway, and in this recipe we are using fragrant fruits and spices. Tofu is a silent hero in this smoothie giving us creaminess and all the nutrients, while being completely unnoticed.
Is It A Good Breakfast Smoothie?
With high protein content, healthy carbs and low fat this Vegan Tofu Smoothie is a fantastic breakfast option. You can drink it at home or take it with you in an airtight container.
Can I Make A Smoothie Bowl?
Add 3-4 tablespoons of rolled oats before or after blending and you will get a delicious Tofu Smoothie Bowl. Decorate it with more fruit and nuts.
Can You Eat Tofu Raw?
