Breakfast Smoothies

A recipe of my own invention. All amounts approximate. Vary proportions and ingredients with wild abandon.

  • 400mL orange juice

  • 75g (that's 1/4 of a 300g container) silken tofu

  • 3 large spoonfuls plain yogurt

  • 1 3/4 cup frozen fruit (last week we used strawberries and mango, this week it's mixed berries)

  • a generous half cup quick oats

  • 2-3 tsp flax meal

  • 1 banana

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl. This can be done the night before if you prefer, and left in the fridge over night. In the morning, take a handblender and whrrrrrrrrrrrrr until the texture is quite liquid.

Makes a filling breakfast for 2.

I find this recipe to be a bit acidic. If you agree (and you're rich) feel free to substitute some or all of the oj with soy milk (or real milk if you have a high tolerance for dairy). I use orange juice only because it is the most cheaply available real juice.
