Entered for safe-keeping. From Deborah Madison's "This Can't Be Tofu!". Variations: a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg; vanilla; hazelnut or almond syrup; chocolate syrup; coconut milk; a big scoop of vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt; a banana. Cooking time is blender time.
- 1 cup strong coffee or 1 cup espresso
- 1⁄2 cup soymilk
- 1⁄3 cup soft silken tofu
- 3 ice cubes
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar or 1 1⁄2 teaspoons Splenda sugar substitute, brown sugar blend
- Combine everything in a blender and puree until smooth.
I made as written, but I am wondering if "1 cup coffee" meant 8 oz. or a small "coffee cup" of coffee. Mine tasted good, but was a bit thin. I would have preferred it thicker, and I would leave out the soymilk and add extra tofu next time. The recipe is very quick and easy. Made for Summer Comfort Cafe 2009.
I wasn't able to find a silken tofu, only firm and extra-firm, so I substituted soy ice cream and it worked like a dream! Delicious creamy vegan variation to a milkshake. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring 2009 Photo Tag.
