Tofu smoothie #namedishchallenge
This idea came to me after watching Doug, Jane and John C in the one episode of Doug's podcast, so naturally this smoothie is dedicated to them!
So Doug was asking all sorts of questions to John, and one of them was if he would ever try a chorizo smoothie :D as it's his favorite ingredient (I believe)! And immediately a thought cross my head, TOFU SMOOTHIE!!! Crazy??? I know right :D
My initial thought was to use firm tofu, but I wasn't sure how the texture would be affected! But quickly I realized that I could use silken tofu, which is silk (hence the name) and the texture would be perfect!
So here are the ingredients, the star: silken tofu, frozen mango & banana and kiwi! Kiwi was also mentioned in the podcast and actually John said that he wouldn't mind keeping the skin of it in a smoothie! However, I removed it. I couldn't take it that far (maybe next time)!
At this point I'm not sure as to whether this would work, but you know I had to go for it! I also added a little bit of water and blended it!
Et voila, the end result :) of course I had to share the joy with my lovely husband (who tries everything I make without any complain)!
I liked it! The texture was actually really good, very smooth and silky! The taste was good but it definitely can be improved! Overall I'm happy I tried it and thank you Jane, Doug & John for the inspiration!
I'll leave the podcast here, in case you haven't checked it out!
