Breakfast on the Go: Tofu Protein Shake

This protein shake recipe is terrific because you can customize it to make a fruit or sweet (chocolate) protein shake. You can add any type of fruit you want. Enjoy!

We all know protein is a necessity for building lean muscle. I love TOFU. I will often add it to stir fry dishes to add variety, texture and protein with noodles and veggies. You find it in the grocery store in the cheese dept.

What is TOFU?
Being of part Chinese decent, I grew up eating tofu. It is made of soy beans and is also called bean curd. The taste is very mild and you can use it in place of meat or eggs and add it to puddings and protein shakes!   There are different "firmness" to buy: extra firm: (for sandwiches or stir fry), firm: for eggs, silken: for puddings or shakes. Hope you enjoy it like I do! Make sure to buy organic tofu, it's cleaner and healthier.

Try adding TOFU to your protein shakes, it's an easy way to add variety and extra protein to your shakes! Because it really doesn't have a definite flavor, you can add it to every type of protein shake from fruit to chocolate.
