Strawberry-Mango Green Smoothie

GreenSmoothie

I start every morning off with some version of a green smoothies. They are filling, nutritious and I feel like I’m doing something really good for myself. The beauty of smoothies is that there you have a lot of freedom to do what you want with them. You can use fresh or frozen fruit and different fruit combinations. Honestly, with all the amazing fruit flavors you would never suspect that there is tofu in this shake.

Ingredients
makes 2 servings
1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango
1 banana
4 cups kale
1/2 cup silken tofu
13/4 cup steeped green tea
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 packets stevia
4 ice cubes (optional)

Directions

  1. Place all the ingredients, except the steeped green tea and chia seeds into a blender
  2. Steep the green tea for 2-3 minutes and remove the tea bag
  3. Sprinkle the chia seeds into the green tea and let steep for 10-15 minutes
  4. Add the ice to the warm green tea and chia seeds to help cool down the temperature
  5. Pour the tea and seed mixture into the blender and blend
  6. Enjoy!

    At first I was a little put off by the color, but now I can’t start my day without one.
    Oh, and check out my wife’s new food blog!

    Thank you, thank you. I have been reading about the smoothie and I remember how delicious yours are (Dr. Oz, eat your heart out). Can’t wait to use the NINJA to make it!

      You’re welcome! It may be best to leave out the green tea if you use yogurt instead of tofu. The water yogurt consistency might be pretty weird.
