After a wintery start to spring, warmth and sunshine are finally filling in where the cold and gray once were.

I was never one to shy away from smoothies during the winter months, but something about the postpartum period had me craving big bowls of warm oats and spicy tofu scrambles.

However, since the recent return of warm weather, it’s all I can do to keep myself from enjoying smoothies for both breakfast and lunch.

Since I’m nursing, I take extra care to ensure I’m getting a hefty 60+ grams of plant-based protein every day.

As I shared a while back, I typically consume about 40 to 50 grams of protein a day without trying. I’ve found that the easiest way to get that extra 10 to 20 grams is to start the day with a protein smoothie or smoothie bowl.

In the past, I’ve solely relied on protein powder to get that added boost, but lately I’ve been adding Nasoya’s Organic Silken Tofu to smoothies instead.

If you’re tofu-hesitant, please hear me out.

Nasoya’s silken tofu is super smooth, versatile, and blends up like a dream. The result is a creamy, effortlessly thick, and satisfying smoothie bowl with a generous 10+ grams of plant-based protein.

I currently have two favorite variations of this smoothie bowl: banana almond + wild blueberry.

Picking a favorite wasn’t possible, so I’m sharing both with you today.

To make the banana almond variation, you’ll blend half a package of Nasoya Organic Silken Tofu with one frozen banana, two tablespoons almond butter, a splash of vanilla, and a pinch of sea salt.

You’ll likely need to add a small splash of plant-based milk to get everything moving, but if you can avoid it then skip it. When it comes to smoothie bowls, the thicker the better. Why? Because thick smoothies = better topping holders.

I prefer to top mine with sliced strawberry and banana, a drizzle of almond butter, and a sprinkling of hemp hearts.

To make the wild blueberry variation, you’ll blend half a package of Nasoya Organic Silken Tofu with one frozen banana, half cup frozen wild blueberries, and a pinch of sea salt.

Again, you’ll likely need to add a small splash of plant-based milk to get everything moving, especially with the addition of frozen blueberries.

Once the smoothie is thoroughly blended, scoop it into a bowl and top as desired.

I like to top this one with frozen blueberries, sliced banana, chia seeds, hemp hearts, and granola.

These simple protein smoothie bowls are some of the best I’ve ever tasted. Seriously.

I was initially hesitant about the tofu, but my goodness does it make for a great smoothie. Give it a try and report back. I’d love to know what you think!
