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.
