Silken Tofu Smoothie Recipe

Tofu is great for a lot of things, especially when blended with fruits as it gives the smoothies a light and creamy quality which I really enjoy.

I try to incorporate healthy ingredients and supplements into my smoothies whenever possible, so I decided to try my hand at making a silken tofu smoothie recipe.

And for those of you who might be a bit skittish about using tofu instead of bananas or yogurt to make your smoothies creamier, have no fear, this stuff only enhances the smoothie (and it’s good for you too!).

What is “silken” tofu?

Silken Tofu Smoothie!

Mixed Berries + Citrus juice + Silken Tofu = Happiness

Silken tofu is a specific type or “style” of tofu in that it is much creamier and softer then the “extra firm” tofu that is often used as a meat substitute due to its meatier and chewier qualities for example. Silken tofu is a very soft style of tofu and as the name implies, it is very silky tasting, like a fine yogurt.

This stuff can be eaten straight just with a spoon, but be careful as it can break apart easily unlike harder tofu types. This recipe also calls for soy milk as well, so as always I reccomend that you only use organic ingredients for everything if possible, but especially soy.

This is because 90% of U.S. grown soy is genetically modified, let alone non organic. Same goes for many exports from other countries too, so keep it healthy and stick with organic if at all possible please :).

This smoothie recipe calls for the use of frozen mixed berries, but if you only have access to frozen berries of a single type, I reccomend using either strawberries or raspberries. The particular blend I use is an organic blend of frozen berries from the BJ’s wholesale club chain of stores found along the whole east coast of the U.S. which has strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries (a 3 pound bag of frozen organic berries for 10$!). You can also find frozen organic mixed berries at whole foods, trader joes, or many small organic grocery stores, even some of the more traditional grocery stores carry this type of item now.
