My easy, hardly any ingredients, totally customisable protein smoothie recipe

I have smoothies or protein shakes for breakfast every day. I use commercial ones when I am working, but when I am off work and have a little more time I like to mix it up with some made smoothies. I do find that lots of the recipes I come across need lots of ingredients that I either don't normally buy, or won't use all of. I also have a bit of a sweet tooth so tried to come up with something more dairy than veggie tasting. This recipe is focused on protein to keep me fuller for longer, and is a base that can be easily customised for what ever I feel like that day.

This is a basic recipe using a stick blender. Just throw it in, blend and drink. 
  • 1/3 carton firm silken tofu
  • 200 ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 100 ml low fat yoghurt
  • 1 tsp stevia sweetener
  • Couple drops vanilla extract

I sometimes have this on its own, or will thrown in whatever is around in terms of fruit (bananas and berries are best). The milks and yoghurts also change around depending on my fancy - sometimes I use light soya or hazelnut milk instead. You can also throw in some toasted nuts or peanut butter for some added protein.

A variation with banana and peanut butter also turned out quite nice, but obviously has more calories!

If you have any variations or suggestions leave a comment below. I'm always interested in trying out new recipes.
