Optional Smoothie Variations & Recipe Notes

Vegan Chocolate Tofu Smoothie Being poured into a glass cup

There are so many different customizations you could make to this high-protein tofu smoothie.

For example:

  • Tropical Twist: You can swap the frozen berries for frozen mango or pineapple, for a refreshing tropical twist.
  • Not Vegan? Add Yogurt! Greek yogurt not only adds more creaminess but also more protein to the smoothie. Adding 1/3 cup is plenty.
  • Boost The Protein Even More: If yogurt is not an option, add a scoop of vegan protein powder, I used pea protein.
  • Increase Antioxidant Power: Add a handful of spinach or kale to ramp up the antioxidant content without altering the smoothie’s delicious taste significantly.
  • Add Plant-Based Omega-3s: Sprinkle in a tablespoon of ground flaxseed or hemp seeds for a boost in omega-3 fatty acids, which are great for heart and brain health.

Smoothie FAQs:

Can I Use Firm Tofu Instead Of Silken Tofu In This Smoothie?

Yes, you can use medium-to-firm tofu instead of silken tofu, but silken tofu is a lot creamier and blends much better than firm tofu,

Can I Add Fresh Fruit Instead Of Frozen?

Yes, fresh fruit can be used, but frozen fruit gives the smoothie a thicker, more refreshing texture. If using fresh fruit, consider adding ice to achieve a similar consistency.

How Long Does This Smoothie Keep In The Refrigerator?

This smoothie is best enjoyed immediately after blending for optimal flavor and texture. However, it can be stored in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Just give it a good stir or shake before drinking, as separation may occur.
