Need a high protein smoothie? Packed with protein, this blueberry and tofu smoothie is a perfect post workout food or meal replacement. This is a higher calorie smoothie, but you can cut down the calories (and the carbs) some by cutting down the amount of blueberries.
After a workout, your body needs protein, at least in the range of 10 to 20 grams. Protein after workouts helps you increase your muscles or replenish the proteins you have lost from workout. It is also important that you eat some carbs along with your protein to slow down its breakdown. Replenish your body’s vitamins and minerals with this smoothie and reap the following: B-vitamin complex, Vitamin D %45, 52% calcium, 21% Iron and so much more.
Tofu picks up the taste of whatever it is mixed with, so this basically tastes just like a banana and blueberry smoothie.
- 1 tbsp honey
- ⅔ cup blueberries
- 1 medium banana
- 6-oz silken tofu soft
- Soy milk to fill line
- Add all ingredients to your large nutribullet cup, saving soy milk for last.
- Once you have filled the cup with soy milk to the fill line, puree ingredients to desired consistency.
