Vary this smoothie by adding 12 ounces of your favorite frozen
fruit and add more vanilla syrup or use honey to taste. You have
to try tofu to believe how good it is when mixed with fruit and
orange juice. Tofu naturally takes on the flavors of any food it
is mixed with and has been made in Asia for over 2,000 years.
The soybeans are soaked and then pureed and cooked to create soy
milk. This milk is mixed with a coagulant to make curds which
are then pressed into molds to form tofu. It is smooth and
silky, but rather bland on its own.

of the berries and blend well, stirring as needed
the blender is turned off.
4. Pour into two
