Breakfast Smoothie with Blueberries, Pear and Tofu

 
Smoothie with tofu contains a lot of proteins and keeps the hunger pangs away until lunchtime. I was inspired to try this recipe by Marika, who serves it as a pudding to her kids - and they love it! She underlines that the pear needs to be almost over ripe, in order to sweeten the smoothie. Our pears weren't that ripe, so I sweetened the smoothie with a ½ teaspoon stevia and a ½ teaspoon vanilla sugar.

 

You will need: (2 portions)

1 ripe pear
½ cup soft tofu (I used Silken)
1 cup frozen blueberries
½ cup cold water
(taste and sweeten if necessary)

Mix the ingredients in a blender and serve - Easy Peasy!

  5. Your Smoothie is not only healthy but also yummmmmm. I was born in Indonesia, so I often use it in Indonesian food, but never tried to put it in a Smoothie.

    Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Hi Barbara, I fell for the Sambal Olek-tasty chili sauce in Bruxelles, our friend with Indonasian roots taught us to like it (I do not know if Sambal olek is from the indonasian cuisine, but it surely tastes good! (in small proportions:)
