If you are after a protein shake with a twist, what better smoothie recipe for you than a high-protein tofu smoothie?
Adding tofu to your smoothies can sound a bit weird, but it really adds that extra protein as well as creaminess.
You really cannot taste the tofu in the smoothie, that is a promise!
This smoothie can be made vegan if you use the vegan-friendly protein powder and sub dairy milk for dairy-free milk, however, that is only if you are a vegan!
