Please note that below is a guide for some of the ingredients we used in the recipe. The printable recipe further down the page has the complete list of ingredients, including quantities and step-by-step instructions.
Silken tofu (or Japanese tofu) is very soft and smooth and will fall apart easily when handled. It is a popular ingredient in vegan and vegetarian cooking and is used in dairy-free desserts, smoothies, and sauces.
Milk - we used our homemade soy milk, but you can use other plant milk like unsweetened almond milk or dairy milk.
Banana - Use a ripe banana for natural sweetness.
Sweetener (optional) - use a sweetener of your choice, such as white granulated sugar or honey. Or make it vegan by using maple syrup, monk fruit sugar, or beet sugar.
Cocoa Powder - use unsweetened cocoa powder.
Walnuts - are a good source of plant protein that will help keep you fuller for longer.
Vanilla extract - helps to enhance all the flavors in the chocolate tofu smoothie making it taste even better.
You will need a high-speed blender or food processor.
This chocolate breakfast smoothie is very easy to make - all you need to do is place all the ingredients into a food processor, blend until smooth, and serve immediately.
Use frozen banana - slice the banana the night before and freeze to use the next day. Freezing the bananas and using frozen berries in smoothies makes them thick and well-chilled.
Use ice cubes - if you don't want to freeze the banana or are using fresh berries, you can cool the smoothie down by blending in 3-4 ice cubes.
This chocolate shake recipe makes a single serving of just over 1 cup (270 grams, 9.55 ounces).
