Mango & Strawberry Nasoya Smoothie

A while back, I won one of Nasoya's recipe contests, and as a gift received a really nice cutting board, an apron, a bag and a bunch of coupons for their products. I decided to try out their vanilla flavored silken tofu. This would be the first time I've ever cooked with silken tofu.

Not wanting to be super adventurous and having some ripe champagne mangoes (thanks, Cindy!), I chose to come up with a recipe for a smoothie. This could not be easier (unless you just bought one at a smoothie cart).

Ingredients
1 package of Nasoya vanilla silken tofu, divided in half
3 ripe mangoes, peeled, seed removed, cut into large chunks
20 strawberries
extra strawberries for decorations

Directions
1. In a food processor pure mangoes with 1/2 of silken tofu. Pour into a container.
2. Quickly rinse the food processor, add strawberries and the remaining silken tofu and puree.
3. Fill your favorite glass with mango and strawberry mixture alternating between colors and flavors.
4. Top off with a strawberry.


You can obviously combine both strawberries and mangoes in the food processor, but I think the layered look is very pretty!



Have you used silken tofu? If so, what did you make?

And please don't forget to check out my Mango & Tomato recipe contest that goes till the end of June.

Silken tofu + melted chocolate + peanut butter poured into a graham cracker crust and refrigerated overnight = super easy and guiltless dessert. Eat the whole thing, who cares?

Chocolate pudding..blend silken tofu in processor to get it smooth. On stove heat it with a 1/2 bag of choc chips and 3 T maple syrup until it's combined. Pour into bowls and refrigerate.

This looks delicious! I used to cook back a lot with regular tofu, but haven't done that much with silken tofu. Might be giving this a try - thanks! xoxo
