Healthy Fruit Smoothies (with Tofu!)

I've recently got a new kitchen toy - a handheld Braun mixer/blender/whisk/chopper. With it, tah-dah, I can now make pureed soups, smoothies, and sauces! I immediately set to work and whipped up this super healthy kyoho grape tofu smoothie. It sounds quite horrible and nastily vegetarian, but it's really very nice, with a lovely creamy texture similar to yoghurt. It's unexpectedly extremely refreshing and fruity with a nice accent of soya milk taste, plus you feel so good about the good things that you're doing for your body after you've drunk it :-) (i guess this compensates a little for the excesses like drinking wine, hah!).
-Silken Tofu, 125 g (half of the standard roll sold in supermarkets)
-Honey, 1.5 tablespoon
-Fruits, about 50 g. Berries, Grapes, Strawberries are all good choices.
- Water, about 200 ml (adjust to preference)
Blend all the ingredients together, adjusting quantities to taste. Makes enough for two wonderful glasses.
