MAKE YUMMY ESPRESSO & VANILLA ‘MILKSHAKE’

 

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.

 

By making one of these milkshakes instead of buying one at McDonalds, you’re saving yourself from 47g (12 teaspoons) of sugar and a whopping 305 calories!

SALLY.
