Fruit Smoothies

This refreshing fruity drink can be sweetened further by increasing the maple syrup, which will also provide an increase in calcium. Bump up the volume of this drink by adding crushed ice.

  • 1 large seedless orange, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup fruit juice (calcium fortified if possible)
  • ½ cup strawberries (or other fruit)
  • 4 ounces soft tofu
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla

In a blender, combine all ingredients. Blend on high for 30 seconds. Refrigerate until cold or add crushed ice and serve immediately. Makes 2 ½ cups.

This great receipe is from “Calci-Yum!” by D & R. Bronfman.
