I’m in a great mood. Bobby is going to visit next week, I just got some good work to do, and I’m feeling energized. I managed to use more of my strawberries last night. They are delicious.
I saw a delicious strawberry lassi over at Baking Bites and decided I had to make a vegan version. Remember that tofu yogurt that I made the other morning? Well it was a perfect base for this smooth drink. The strawberries were divine. This is a good dessert but it’s also a great energy drink. The tofu gives it protein and the flavor is balanced with sweetness (agave nectar) and salt. Vegan food is so amazing. Although I’m not a vegan, I end up being one 90% of the time just because I always prefer vegan dishes. And here’s another one for you to make!
3 very large fresh strawberries (or 4 medium ones)
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or other milk sub)
1/2 cup soft silken tofu
1.5 tablespoons agave nectar
dash of salt
Slice the strawberries. Add everything to a blender and pulse until smooth. Serve chilled with fresh strawberries. It would be a great pick-me-up on a hot day.
