Pomegranate Smoothie

Recipe from Martha Stewart Everyday Food and Tested in Alice's Kitchen
Serves 2

I saw this recipe in the current issue (March 2008) Everyday Food Magazine which is now available at Lost River Market & Deli. I made this smoothie last night for snack. My husband and I thought it tasted very refreshing. The magazine suggests serving this for quick breakfast. It sure didn't take any time to make. If you're trying tofu for the first time, this is a good recipe to begin. Your kids are sure to love it. Tofu takes on the flavor of other ingredients and it's a great source of protein. Silken tofu is sold in vacuum-packed, shelf-stable containers in the Asian-food section at Lost River Market & Deli. After opening, put unused portion in a air tight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

1/3 cup silken tofu (about 3 oz.)
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1/2 cup pomegranate juice
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 cup ice cubes

In a blender, combine all ingredients. Puree until smooth. Serve immediately. (If the smoothie seems too thick, just add a bit more pomegranate juice.)
