This week’s Daily Campus Hungry Husky column recipe is for a fruity tofu smoothie.

Strawberry, banana, silken tofu and orange juice ready to be blended!

Want to make a dairy free smoothie? Tofu is a perfect replacement for yogurt. Tofu is an excellent source of protein, similar to Greek yogurt. In general, tofu also has a lower amount of calories, less fat, and also has calcium to offer your body. So I decided to make a smoothie using tofu in place of a dairy alternative, like Greek yogurt. The tofu has a very similar consistency to yogurt and, therefore, gives the smoothie the texture you are used to and love.

Serves: 1
Prep time: 5 minutes

Here’s what you’ll need:
1/2 cup of orange juice
1/2 cup of silken tofu
1 banana
4 strawberries

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high for about two minutes. Then simply pour and serve to enjoy your fruity tofu smoothie!

Your fruity tofu smoothie is ready to go!
