Shakes W/Abishek – Strawberry-Banana Tofu Smoothie!

Hey UBC,

I would like to welcome you to the first edition of Shakes W/Abishek. Come join me every month as we try a new smoothie or shake recipe that not only fuels our bodies but helps us get moving and grooving!

This month we are going to try a Strawberry-Banana Tofu Smoothie recipe inspired by my mom. This vegan smoothie is rich in antioxidants, fibres, and vitamins. The tofu is also a great source of complete protein. This smoothie is versatile and can be paired well with any occasion. It is also an amazing post-workout smoothie that you can optionally pair with protein powder to help energize your body!



  • ½  Cup – Strawberries (Fresh or Frozen)
  • 1 – Banana (Fresh or Frozen)
  • ⅓  Cup –  Raw Tofu
  • 1 ½  Cup – Pineapple Juice 
  • Optional – 1 Cup – Protein Powder 


Equipment Needed:

  • Blender 
  • Knife 
  • Cutting Board
  • Cup
  • Optional – Straw 


How to Prep:

    1. Cut up your banana and ½  cup of strawberries on your cutting board and place them in your blender. 
    2. Carefully measure ⅓  cup of your tofu and then place it in your blender. 
    3. Pour your 1 ½  cups of pineapple juice into your blender. 
    4. Blend all your ingredients for approximately 15 to 25 seconds. If your blender has a “smoothie” option that will do the job as well. 
    5. After you are done blending, pour your smoothie into your cup and enjoy!
  • Optional – Feel free to add one cup of a protein powder of your choice, I recommend vanilla, to your blender. 


This is a quick, easy and nutritious smoothie recipe that you definitely need to try out! Try it and let us know what you think! See you next month for Shakes W/Abishek!
