Well this morning I realised we had silken tofu so I wanted to experiment from my Sunday breakfast. I basically looked around in our kitchen and this is what I came up with: raspberries, rice milk, cacao, silken (soft) tofu, oats and blueberries.
So I got my bamix blender out and whizzed up a handful of frozen raspberries and blueberries, 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 block of silken, 2 teaspoons of cacao and 600mL of rice milk.
A thick, creamy & delicious smoothie! Well that's what I thought anyway. I gave some to my mother and she thought it was too gritty but drank it anyway (woops!). My sister said it was nice but I couldn't really tell if she was being sarcastic because she then covered her face with the newspaper and started to laugh..."Don't look at me Hannah, you're making me laugh". Yeah sure.
Not trying to turn you off, I thought it was delicious! Because it was my breakfast I wanted it to be thick so I added the oats, however if you want a thinner smoothie here's what you'd do:
- Omit the oats.
- Use less berries
- Add more milk
Oh and you can't even taste the silken tofu! I should try the same combination as Janella did, and because it will be a lot thinner, I'd probably be able to tell the tofu made it creamy.
