Blueberry Smoothie for breaky anyone?


Here is a modification of my earlier smoothie.  The tofu macha one.

This one is now my new favourite.  It’s stunning, delicious, wholesome, filling, satisfying, healthy, wonderful.  WOW!!

It was a hot morning, so porridge was not even considered.  This one fits the weekend breakfast perfectly followed by a small leftover toasted slice of my carrot cake.  Ok, so the intention to cut down on the sugar is there, but it is the weekend after all 🙂 Well… I did go swimming, so that may have burnt of the unnecessary calories, ehe?

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • 300g silken or firm tofu
  • 1 cup of spring water
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 ripe frozen banana
  • 4 ice cubes

Directions:

  1. Add all ingredients (not the ice) into the blender and pulse until smooth
  2. fill 2 glasses with the ice, pour the purple deliciousness into the glasses, sit back and enjoy.
  3. There is more for seconds too 🙂
  4. If you like it thinner, just add water until you reach your desired consistency
