This healthy, metabolism-boosting Easy Protein Blueberry Smoothie is the perfect way to start your day. It’s easy, quick, tasty, and full of antioxidants, protein, and fat-burning goodness!
It’s not high on calories, but it’s really high on taste 😉
It’s super filling too. No protein powder needed, as we have used silken tofu in the smoothie. Yep, you heard that right. We think of smoothies as a thing where you can create different variations and implement different ingredients.
We have used cauliflower, zucchinis in smoothies. Nothing is too weird when it comes to smoothies.
Can I Use a Different Kind of Tofu To Make This Blueberry Smoothie?
We recommend you use silken tofu since it will blend better and make things creamier.
Other tofu such as firm tofu, will be harder to blend completely unless of course, you are using a really powerful blender such as Vitamix.
Does the smoothie taste like tofu?
The answer is no. it tastes sweet, blueberry-banana-ish. You will never notice the tofu in there.
Why tofu you may wonder? – well, some people just don’t like using protein powders, or such. So we thought to create a recipe using other ingredients to boost the protein in the smoothie.
