This is made with tofu and tastes like an Orange Julius drink. No one in your family will know they're eating tofu! Be sure to use SOFT tofu, not firm, or it will taste gritty.

It was tasty but I used vanilla yogurt (sometimes strawberry too) instead. Silken tofu is not the easiest thing to find and I always have yogurt on hand. Read More

very smooth. It takes a few sips to get used to the taste of the tofu...and then you don't taste it. Read More

Good with silken tofu but I bet it would be delicious with yogurt instead. Read More

I've been buying tofu to get extra protein into my kids but was looking for a way to get them to eat/drink it without them throwing a fit. This was perfect! I did increase the vanilla flavoring just a touch but other than that I made no other changes. The end result was almost exactly like an Orange Julius. The kids absolutely loved it. Next time I'll take a previous reviewer's advice and not only use silken tofu but I'll chunk it up and freeze it too. I bet that would make an even smoother and silkier texture for the smoothie.

Yum! Very refreshing and so nice to know it's pretty healthy too! I subbed pineapple juice for oj because it was what I had on had -- worked great. Will definitely whip this up again soon! Read More

Very tasty recipe. I've started quartering the recipe and freezing the banana and tofu (and usually some strawberries) in ziplock bags for a quick breafast. It doesn't work as well that way but is still quite good. Also good with an extra spash of lemon extract (darn bottles look similar at 5am) Read More

5.15.16 The silken tofu adds texture and creaminess you really don t taste the tofu itself (for those who aren t familiar with tofu). I did add a little crushed ice and I ll probably increase the vanilla next time. Never had an Orange Julius so I can t say if this measures up but I will say that this is a very nice smoothie.
