Smoothies - Delicious and Nutritious

Fruity Tofu Smoothie


Smoothies, Our Favourite Snack

I love them, Sid loves them and they are healthy, nutritious and delicious!

Here are some of our favourite smoothie recipes:

Strawberry Banana

  • 2 cups strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • 1/2 cup of orange juice
  • 1/2 cup milk (soy is our smoothie go-to milk)
  • 1/4 cup dry oats
  • 1 tsp ground flaxseeds

Very Berry
  • 2 cups mixed berries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 tsp ground flaxseeds

Fruity Tofu
  • 1 cup frozen mixed fruits (I like the one with peaches, mango and strawberry!)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup silken tofu
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tbsp liquid honey
  • 1 banana
  • 1 tsp ground flaxseeds

And obviously, all you do is throw the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth!

Flaxseeds are like a miracle food! They are full of omega-3s, you know, those good fats that are heart-healthy. Flaxseeds also have lots of fiber and lignans which have antioxidant qualities. They supposedly help reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes. That's why I always put at least 1 teaspoon in my smoothies. I also sprinkle them on cereal, in oatmeal, throw some in my baked goods, pancake mix... I could go on and on.
What's your favourite smoothie recipe?
