Plant-Based Chocolate Tofu Smoothie With Reishi Mushroom
Try silken tofu in your smoothies for a luxuriously rich and creamy experience.
Add tofu to your smoothie for a boost of plant-based protein and a silky smooth texture. But make sure it's silken tofu—an undrained and unpressed tofu, softer than the kind you see in stir-frys.
While many plant-based beverages could be used as a base in this smoothie blend, a cashew beverage has a mild, creamy taste that accentuates the silken tofu's texture.
Don't miss an opportunity to boost your tofu smoothie with some adaptogens. We've used reishi here for added immune support and sleep cycle regulation, but you can swap it out for an adaptogen of your choice—like a lion's mane mushroom supplement for cognitive function or a cordyceps supplement for physical stamina (perfect for workout days).
