The following is a sponsored post on behalf of Nasoya Tofu. Opinions expressed about the product and my Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe are that of my own.
So my kids and I like smoothies, and because of this I like to try out new combinations and ingredients. A great example of this was when I recently created a Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe made with Tofu.
Now Tofu is something that my family has not been exposed to other than in Miso Soup or maybe in Sushi, so I was interested in looking for alternative ways to incorporate it into our diet.
I experimented with the Nasoya Sesame Ginger TofuBaked in an Asian Salad and my 2 older children raved about it. However since Fall is right around the corner, I have started to crave pumpkin dishes, baked goods, and lots of cinnamon.
It just so happens to still be warm here in Florida so Apple Cider or Warm pumpkin beverages are not really ideal. I thought a Pumpkin Smoothie would be a cool refreshing snack and would also be an awesome way to try out the Nasoya Tofu.
If you would like to recreate this recipe, you will need the following:
Pumpkin Smoothie Recipe Serves 2-3
4 Tbsp of Nasoya Silken Tofu
4 Tbsp of Canned Pumpkin
1 Cup of Sweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1/4 Tsp of Cinnamon
2 Tsp of Brown Sugar or 1 Tsp of honey (I tried this both ways)
2 Cups of Ice
Combine all of these ingredients in a blender. I used the smoothie setting on mine until it was completely mixed. Then serve the Pumpkin Smoothie immediately. FYI, my children loved this smoothie and I have already made it 3 times.
