High Protein Vegan Tofu, Almond, and Strawberry Smoothie

I have had requests for both high protein and vegan smoothies. This one is both!  Tofu and soy yogurt are a source of complete protein. The body requires 9 essential amino acids and all 9 are found in soy products like tofu and soy yogurt. By adding both to this recipe, along with some almond butter, this protein smoothie contains 29% daily value of your daily protein needs. Strawberries are a low glycemic index fruit to add fruity flavor.

I love using avocado in smoothies for that purpose! This also is formulated with water, but you can use soy, almond, or coconut milk  instead for a richer flavor. That will take the carb count back up again some though. If you want more info on creating keto or low carb smoothies, check out our post on formulating keto smoothies.
