Espresso & Vanilla ‘Milkshake’


Posted on   Category: Post-Workout Snacks, Drinks & Shakes

This dairy-free ‘milkshake’ is packed with 26g of protein and is low in calories (75 to be exact!), leaving you full + satisfied minus the food baby. I’m expecting a lot of gasps at the required use of tofu, but I promise you won’t taste it. Does tofu even taste?! Anyway, just enjoy the creamy texture, zero sugar and much-needed caffeine for a breakfast on-the-go, or as post-workout re-fuel for those tired muscles!

SERVES: 1

INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ pack silken tofu*
  • 1 shot espresso (or 1 tsp coffee granules in 1/8 cup hot water)
  • ½  tsp pure vanilla
  • 1 cup water
  • ½  tsp Natvia (stevia) or ½  raw honey (if you like it sweet)

 

 

METHOD:

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blitz until smooth.
  2. Serve in a cold glass, with a few ice cubes if desired.

 

Tips:

*Don’t sub the silken tofu with hard tofu – you’ll end up with a very lumpy milkshake!

If you can handle dairy, try adding plain Greek Yoghurt instead of tofu.
