My husband and I tried this recipe recently and we both loved the creaminess and lovely flavor of the classic strawberry/banana combo with the hint of wild honey. I am lactose intolerant so it was exciting to have something of this creamy consistency with no dairy involved! I think this will be a new go-to breakfast for us.
I have to admit, I was also extremely skeptical about the tofu. I am a vegetarian and eat tofu regularly and I never imagined it would taste so delicious in a smoothie with berries. I tend to use a frozen berry mix for this recipe and it is fantastic, specially during hot summer months!
Okay, I made this according to the recipe with the strawberries, orange juice etc. I do not like either and orange juice hurts my stomach. So, I altered the recipe. I used blueberries and apple juice (you need to increase the number of blueberries) and it turned out devine. It will be a regular in my morning routine. Just loved it, I even sneeked it into my boyfriends breakfast without telling him it had tofu in it. He loved it too, hee hee. It is hard to get really healthy foods into him sometimes.
I admit, I had my doubts about the tofu, but this is really delicious! I made one before heading to the gym this morning and it was perfect. It's light but filling and has great flavor. The vanilla adds a lot of depth.
