Smoothies have this innate ability to make you feel good when you drink them- maybe it taps into your inner child, or maybe it's the fact that you can throw a smorgasbord of ingredients into a blender and still come out with something tasty. Either way, when battling a tough cold, I knew I needed a powerful shot of something to help me get better- after all, NyQuil shots only do so much! If you're like me and you tend to lose your appetite when you're sick, add some silken tofu to this smoothie for some much needed protein; if you're in need of some good ol' vitamin C, feel free to add more orange juice to the mix.
I can't say this smoothie magically healed me, but I sure felt better after a few of these!
* 1 pkg. silken tofu
* 8 ice cubes
* 1 pint pineapple cubes
* 2 mashed bananas
* splash of vanilla extract or orange juice, whatever your preference
* 1 tbsp. agave nectar
1) Place all ingredients in a blender, and blend for 2 to 3 minutes, until all ingredients are incorporated. Serve cold.
