Sugar Free & Dairy Free Chocolate Tofu Smoothie

Sugar Free & Dairy Free Chocolate Tofu Smoothie. Get the healthy blender recipe at This Mama Cooks! On a Diet

With warmer weather here – or nearly so – my thoughts turn to cooling down with a yummy chocolate shake. However, like other people with food sensitivities to dairy and sugar, I have to forgo ice cream shakes.

So I created this chocolate smoothie made with tofu and sweetened with stevia for those who want some creamy, cool chocolaty goodness, but who also want to avoid dairy and sugar-sweetened alternative ice creams. This is perfect for vegans and those who are dairy free.

This Mama’s tips

  • Feel free to sprinkle on a little more stevia if the shake isn’t sweet enough.
  • Experiment adding almond, mint or raspberry extracts to your chocolate smoothie. Or how about some Triple Sec orange liqueur for a more grownup version?
  • You can also use a chocolate soy or chocolate coconut milk if you wish. They're already sweetened, so you may want to back off on on the stevia.
  • If you don't like stevia, try monk fruit!

    This comes at a PERFECT time for me. I tried a couple bites of Grumpy’s ice cream last night and learned the hard way that I need to just leave it alone. While it makes me very sad, if I can find yummy substitutions then I will be happy! Looks yummy!
