It is T minus one day until my big exam!! Between studying, last minute planning of a friend’s bachelorette party, and trying to scramble enough money together to pay off my student loans before I leave on my trip, I’ve had a pretty busy morning So when lunch time came around, I couldn’t bare the idea of having to chop veggies and actually turn on the stove to cook.
Sooooo I took out my trusty blender, threw in my favourite ingredients, and called it lunch. And what a silky, rich, chocolately, yet incredibly healthy lunch it was
350 g silken tofu (2/3 of the package)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
2 tbs cocoa powder
1 packet stevia
1 tbs agave nectar
2 tbs unsweetened coconut flakes
Blend and enjoy! Sprinkle with more coconut for extra pretty points.
Nutrition Info (for the entire shake)
Protein: 21 g (all plant proteins… which compared to animal protein consumption, is associated with significantly lower blood pressure hurray!)
Fat: 20 g (all healthy fats from tofu and coconut… say hello to glowing skin!)
Sugar: 16 g (from low glycemic agave nectar)
One small word of warning… this recipe makes about 3 cups worth of chocolately silky goodness. I therefore recommend sharing this shake with someone you really like (someone worthy of such healthy delciousness!).
I did not heed to this advice (it was so yummy and I really was trying to pack in that protein to fuel my brain), and I think my stomach is now just on the verge of exploding!
