Finding a dairy-free smoothie that’s creamy and delicious? It’s not always an easy task

More often than not dairy-free smoothies can take on a soupy texture which isn’t very appealing — especially if the smoothie is the only thing you’ll eat for breakfast. When that’s the case it’s best to have something that’s creamy and satiating, even if it is on the lighter side.

I tried Mori-Nu Silken Tofu Firm with their recipe for a blackberry and mint smoothie. The recipe was a breeze to make and the result was an ultra-creamy and refreshing smoothie. The flavour was fruity and doubly refreshing with the addition of the herby mint. Enjoy this for breakfast or as a recharge after a long session at the gym.
