If you love coffee and bananas you are going to love this drink. My Coffee-Banana Tofu Shake is always a hit. Now I know a lot of people turn their nose up at the thought of eating tofu let alone in a shake.
I’m asking you to give this shake a try even if tofu isn’t something that is on your menu.
If you don’t already know there are several health benefits to consuming tofu on a regular basis. Some benefits of eating tofu are getting a high intake of calcium, Vitamin E and you also get a good amount of protein. If you aren’t a fan of tofu adding it to a shake is a great way to add tofu into your diet. If you are looking for other shakes I suggest trying out my Creamy Carmel Protein Shake. This is another very tasty shake that is loaded with protein!
