Sunny Strawberry Milk Shake

Inspired by the old-fashioned soda fountain treat, this refreshing drink is a perfect mid-morning or afternoon snack. The fruit gives it natural sweetness; the tofu increases the protein content. And adding ground flaxseeds contributes a pleasant, slightly nutty flavor—plus fiber and omega-3s.
