Chill out with dairy-free summer smoothies

smoothiesWhen it’s hot outside, there’s nothing more refreshing than an ice-cold smoothie to cool you down. Smoothies are great for a quick breakfast, snack on the run, or to simply quench your thirst.

With summer in full swing, adding the best of the season’s fresh fruit in your smoothies not only shakes up your flavour combinations, but it also enhances the beverage’s nutritional value.

Plus, adding a scoop of your favourite flavour of Tofutti Premium  non-dairy ice cream substitute will enhance the taste and texture of your smoothie, without compromising the calorie-count or health benefits of the beverage.

So go ahead! Make this the summer of smoothies and chill out with the following delicious non-dairy beverage recipes:
