I recently discovered that having fresh fruits for breakfast on an empty stomach reduced my cravings during the day. Since then, I usually have fruit shakes or eat fresh fruit in the morning and then I would eat delicious breakfast meals for brunch.
Here’s a healthy and filling recipe that is perfect for people on the go or who are not fond of breakfast. I am a big fan of almond and soy milk, so you can use that instead of low fat milk. The tofu can make the drink quite heavy and provide protein, but there is still room for other ingredients that contain fiber like oatmeal.
For those who do not like the taste of tofu, there is no need to worry. You can barely taste the tofu because the coffee masks it.
1 1/4 cups low-fat milk
1/2 cup silken tofu
1 ripe banana (frozen)
1-2 tablespoons sugar or 1 pack sweetener
2 teaspoons instant coffee powder, preferably espresso
2 ice cubes
Ground cinnamon, (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth and frothy. Add more sugar if desired.
Pour it into a cup and sprinkle some cinnamon. You may also garnish it with fresh banana.
