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.
