For those who crave a diet-friendly kitchen, it’s a must to have some healthy pantry (and fridge) staples to avoid reaching for the junk food. I’m a self-confessed smoothie junkie, so my stash includes fruits, low-fat milk, tofu (the ones that are packed tightly in plastic to form cylindrical tubes), and honey. I always crave an ice-cold glass right after a workout, because it seems like the quickest cool-down I can think of.
Ingredient-wise, tofu is my current obsession. I’ve always been a fan of soy milk, and tofu gives my smoothies a velvety texture. Plus, I get full much faster from the burst of protein. Yay!
After recently trying out a bunch of smoothie flavors, I’d like to share my own twist on the delightful Buko-Lychee Shake. Coconut cream adds a pleasant “Virgin Piña Colada” touch.
- 6 big cubes of ice
- 1/2 cup of milk
- 1/4 tube of tofu
- 5-6 pieces of lychee from the can (drained and washed)
- 2 Tbs coconut cream
- 1 Tbs of honey
Whirl everything in a blender. Enjoy. 🙂
