Smoothie of the day

I picked up some canned fruit at the grocery yesterday so I could do more smoothie experiments. Today's breakfast beverage consisted of a third of a package of tofu, a cup of orange juice, half a can of pears, a third of a can of crushed pineapple, and some ice. And it was yummy. The tofu is nearly invisible in the finished smoothie; I wouldn't have known it was there if I weren't looking for it.

We've got an old Oster blender, and it's probably not ideal for making smoothies compared to other products on the market. Still, I blended it for about 30 seconds and everything was well-blended, even the ice. I won't try to feed it a garden rake, but it seems fine for smoothies.
