Tofu Lychee Smoothie

Tofu Lychee Smoothie Recipe

The delicate flavor of lychee fruit blends perfectly with the sweetness of pineapple juice, which adds flavor to the soft tofu. If you cannot find fresh lychee, the canned variety works in smoothie recipes too. Make sure to remove the skin and the stone from the lychees before blending. Lychees are a good source of copper, and pineapple is a good source of manganese. Copper and manganese are both components of the superoxide dismutase enzyme. The SOD enzyme fights free radicals in the body, keeping you young and healthy. So enjoy this delicate smoothie recipe and know that you have discovered the fountain of youth.

Vanilla Soy Smoothie

Vanilla Soy Smoothie Recipe

Silken tofu makes a great base for smoothie recipes due to its ability to soften and absorb the flavor of fruits and other ingredients. This is a simple smoothie recipe that makes a great dessert while providing the amazing benefits of soy protein. Soy is one of the few plant sources of “complete protein,” meaning that it contains all the essential amino acids needed to repair and build muscle and tissues. Soy has also been shown to be helpful in preventing heart disease, especially when used to replace meat in the diet. It is easy to add soy to smoothies by using soft tofu, which adds very little flavor, a little texture, and a lot of healthy protein.

Macadamia Cocoa Smoothie

Macadamia Cocoa Smoothie Recipe

This is a truly rich dessert smoothie recipe so save it for a treat or party. The extra calories come from the macadamia nuts, ice cream, and cocoa powder. The flavor is very mild and can be enhanced by adding coconut essence. To reduce the calories in the recipe try using fat free or low fat frozen yogurt in place of the ice cream. Also, almonds may be used in place of macadamia nuts for a more pronounced nut flavor. Nuts contain protein and healthy fats, and studies have shown that people who include nuts in their diet usually weigh less than those who do not.
