Diet Types: Dairy Free, Vegetarian, Vegan
Ingredients:
  • one package silken tofu
  • one scoop protein powder
  • 2 tablespoons coffee substitute
  • 2 tablespoons Carob powder or cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • Dash of vanilla
  • dash each of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup to taste
  • Serves: 2
    Cooking Time: Under 15 minutes
    Instructions:
    Place all ingredients in the blender and whirl until smooth. Refrigerate one hour. Serve as is or with a topping of Granola. Variation: Add a ripe banana or other fruit. Yield: About 2 cups.

    Note: The amount of dry ingredients may vary slightly because of the different consistencies of different brands of silken tofu and the amount of maple syrup you use. Silken tofu has a smoother, less beany taste than regular tofu. It works well in desserts, smoothies and other recipes calling for a sweeter taste. Look for it on shelves as well as in the refrigerated section, since there is one brand (Mori-Nu) that need not be refrigerated until after it is opened.
