Strawberry seeded smoothie

A great smoothie to help you recover after long winter outings


This smoothie is high in unsaturated fat – an important fuel source for rowing.

The amount of dietary fat needed for daily repletion of fat stores after training for over 2 hours is approximately 2 grams per kilo of body weight.


This drink is also a great source of minerals such as magnesium, zinc, potassium and calcium – all important for healthy bones – and vitamins C and E.

Strawberry seeded smoothie

Serves 2


250g firm tofu
200g ripe strawberries
2-3 tablespoons clear honey
Juice of 2 oranges
Juice of 1 lemon (or 2 tablespoons pure lemon juice)
3 tablespoons seeds eg. pumpkin, linseeds, sunflower seeds

Strawberries not your thing?

Why not try our kiwi fruit and pineapple smoothie instead? It's a great choice for healthy bones.

How to make it
  1. Hull and roughly chop the strawberries.
  2. Roughly chop the tofu.
  3. Blend all the ingredients together, reserving the seeds to use as a topping. If you have a high-spec blender or grinder, you may prefer to blend the seeds into the smoothie
