Simple Smoothie


When I was recently sick, my husband started making me smoothies.  After many incarnations and me recreating it later, this is the one that emerged best, so far.  This smoothie is a great way to start the day or wonderful as post workout snack.  It is a wonderful source of protein and fiber.

Smoothie for 1:

  • Frozen cranberries (1/3 of a bag)
  • enough orange juice to cover the cranberries in the bottom of the blender
  • 1 banana (fresh or frozen)
  • 1/2 of a small carton (1/3 of a larger carton) of silken tofu
  • 1 tsp of stevia

Put cranberries and orange juice in blender.  Begin blending.  Meanwhile, peel banana and get out silken tofu.  Stop blender (scrape down sides if necessary) and add banana, silken tofu and stevia.  Blend till smooth.  Voila!  Easy and awesome smoothie.  The frozen cranberries make it cold enough for me.  If you want it colder, you can always add ice.


About Living Well

I am a vegan who loves food and loves life. Why am I vegan? Vegan living seemed to be a holistic way to live. Choosing to live as a vegan is helping me to live more environmentally conscious, more ethically, and more healthy. That said, I still wanted to be able to have foods that I loved. This site will be a place that I share ideas on living well and share vegan recipes. Some recipes are naturally vegan; other recipes I will take and veganize them. My influences in cooking are from my Granny (who is now 96 years old) who taught me how to make homemade buttermilk biscuits, syrup cookies, okra, and other southern comfort favorites; my mom, who knows how to host, and from living in places like London, Spain, and Costa Rica. When I am not cooking I am a professional artist. Cooking is just one more way I get to be creative. May these recipes inspire you, and may they always be delicious! P.S.
