part of a block of silken tofu
part of a block of mori-nu silken tofu… i got this idea from kat (she’s my awesome extra mom who just sent me sandwich photos by post)… it makes fruit smoothies so luscious and smooth! also, the little cartons don’t need to be refrigerated, so it’s easy to stock up on without worrying about any of it going bad. while i’m on the subject of silken tofu, i also highly suggest this chocolate silk pie (SweetTeaAndCrumpets, you would eat it and you would like it!). i’ve tried it with a couple of kinds of tofu, and the extra firm mori-nu set up far better than the rest (wow, they should be paying me!).

hazelnut milk… i have a kitchen sink approach to making smoothies. i didn’t intend to use hazelnut milk, but i ran out of juice.

    • i can hardly imagine not owning a blender. i suppose you could get close with a food processor, or with an immersion blender if you start with small enough pieces.

      i dream of having an immersion blender so i don’t have to wash my blender. :)
