I've always wondered a bit about tofu shakes ever since I first heard of them, probably eight or nine years ago. This past week, I had a rare moment when the only appealing foods were all rather bland sounding. I think my body was revolting from all the food I ate the week before, first at a work conference where they sent us grazing between meetings (I think food coma to keep us quiet might have been the goal), and then on vacation in the lovely Colorado mountains (ahem, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory). I made a batch of tofu shake, which made about four glasses full. It was quite the thing I wanted, and I know it's going to be a great craving in the future.
one package of silken tofu
1 cup frozen blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries mixed
1 ripe banana
Blend. Drink. Thank yourself for a healthy alternative to all the other shakes. Including the masterfully created Baskin Robbins Chocolate Oreo Shake that has been dubbed by Men's Health as the #1 worst food in America. It weighs in at 2,600 calories, 135 grams of fat (59 of which are saturated), 263 grams of sugar and 1,700 milligrams of sodium. WOW.

I see you found a background that you like. :) I'm not sure about the Tofu shake Hun. I'm going to have to go with the BR Oreo Shake! Or better yet, just give a quart of the BR German Chocolate Cake ice cream and I'll be good to go.
