How to make a strawberry tofu smoothie

Once you have the strawberries chopped and the rest of your ingredients ready, this smoothie comes together in a matter of minutes!

Ingredients ready to put in smoothie

Step 1: Add all of the ingredients to the blender except for the ice cubes. Blend until smooth.

Step 2: Add the ice cubes to the blender and blend until completely smooth.

Step 3: Add desired toppings and serve immediately.

How easy was that? That’s why I love this nutritious vegan smoothie when I want a quick breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up!

Adding toppings to your smoothie

This smoothie is delicious straight from the blender, but you can also add some toppings if you like!

After all, who doesn’t love a gorgeous smoothie?

If I’m not in a rush, I like to add some coconut flakes, chia seeds, and a drizzle of almond butter. The strawberry and almond butter flavors go so well together, and I love the bit of crunch from the seeds and coconut flakes!

Looking for some other ideas? You can’t go wrong with sugar-free chocolate chips! Or, for even more crunch, try chopping some nuts of your choice and pan-toasting them for a minute or two.

Have some fun decorating your smoothie! Just remember to factor in any toppings to the nutrition.

Storage

This smoothie is best served right away. It will not keep very well in the refrigerator.

If you only want one serving at a time, simply halve the recipe. You can save the rest of the ingredients to make yourself a delicious vegan smoothie with tofu later in the week!
