|2||Peeled bananas; frozen or fresh, (if your bananas are giant, use one)|
|1||Box Mori-Nu lite tofu|
|1 teaspoon||Maple syrup|
Break bananas into 3" pieces and put in blender. Add the tofu, broken up a bit. Pour cranberry juice in to almost cover. Blend, adding more juice if mixture seems too thick. Add maple syrup while blending. Vary the texture to your preference, I like it at yogurt consistency. Pour some over a cooked bowl of oatmeal and swirl in.
This will make a full blender of smoothie, enough for 4-6 bowls of oatmeal.
I store the leftover smoothie in a glass container in the refrigerator, where it often mysteriously disappears :-) For some reason, it tastes like a strawberry shake.
You can often buy ripe bananas for very little money. I buy large quantities, peel them, break them into three pieces, and freeze them in zip loc bags. For those that have had trouble with frozen bananas in their blenders, maybe it's the blender? I bought an Oster, which was about $10 more than the others, because I wanted the glass container. This blender model seems to have a very sturdy little motor in it.
