Title: Breakfast Green Smoothie
Post by: lavenderbabe on October 16, 2008, 05:10:49 PM
Our favorite breakfast green smoothie consists of
1/2 cup frozen blueberries (we alternate frozen peaches and raspberries)
1 cup fresh pineapple
2 cups 100% cranberry/raspberry juice, no sugar or anything added (Oceanspray)
1/2 silken tofu
Handful of baby spinach
1/2 head of hearts of romaine
2 kale leaves

Put all ingredients in and mix on high for one minute.

That sounds yummy! I see you've discovered how good romaine is in smoothies.

I've not tried tofu in a smoothie but I guess the juice sweetness balances the tofu. I'll have to try that.

Thanks! :)

Sounds good! If you're interested, try googling soy to learn more about the biochemical effects of soy in the human body. Not preaching, just offering information.

Are you using tofu because you are seeking more protein?

Yum yum!

Yeah, I'd try it without the tofu as well, and consider using fresh cranberries instead of juice... ooooo how good!

Thanks for sharing

You are so right Shawna, stopped using tofu almost immediately after reading The Raw Food Detox Diet more deeply. I had previously read that tofu and fermented soy were exceptions to the whole soy hoax, but have changed my mind completely after more research.

Be careful of that soy. Despite the hype, it is not really that healthy. If it is not strictly organic and non-GMO, it's poison. We thought we were eating so healthy, tofu, tempeh, those horrible fake meats sometimes - YUCK, no more, Finally got my husband's Crohn's disease healed with raw food, but it was a long miserable ordeal.

What?...SERIOUSLY?....now we can't eat TOFU or meat replacements?....well us vegetarian/vegan won't have ANYTHING to eat now  :'( It's tough enough as it is being out and about being vegetarian without cutting out tofu and veggie meat!

I guess you need to look at why you want to be a vegetarian/vegan.

If you just want something that "replaces meat" then why not eat meat? If it's about healthy eating then fake replacements are not the best choice.
