Inspired by Iron Cheftress and her tofu recipes on her blog, I tried making a tofu smoothie today!
Were you gross out by the thought?!? To be frank, as I am in Asia, I am all too familiar with tofu in soups and tofu served steamed or fried but I was kinda surprised that it can be used in other ways too. For example, in making a Chocolate Pudding suggested by Iron Cheftress.
To test whether my taste buds can accept tofu in other ways, I started with something simple, a tofu smoothie. I made mine today by simply blending half a pack of Silken tofu (as the name implies, it is softer than regular tofu), one banana, 2 strawberries, iced water and a little bit of honey.
I still haven’t hit a winning combination taste wise. I think I added too little fruits and honey. Texture wise, it is definitely a smoothie! Overall, I think it is a healthier choice of protein source compared to protein powder or cow’s milk. So in conclusion, I am going to add more tofu in my diet and experiment with new ways to do so!!
Next on the list, tofu salad! And if I can find nice avocados, that Chocolate Pudding!
PS: Pity my fridge seems to freeze tofu into ice easily. I have no idea why. Otherwise I will definitely hoard tofu in my fridge!
