Here’s a recipe that a member of our community submitted for our “Healthy Recipe Contest”. It looks delicious, so I wanted to be sure to share it with the rest of our community.
It’s called ‘After-School Snack Attack’ and is a shake. It looks like it would be a great quick and filling snack to welcome your little Einstein home from school with a tall glass of this chocolatey smoothie. It is nutritious and quick to make between getting home from school, and rushing off to soccer/football/basketball practice!
After-School Snack Attack Shake
- 1/2 cup soft silken tofu
- 3/4 cup chilled chocolate rice milk
- 1/2 cup chocolate sorbet
- 1 frozen banana, sliced
- 1/4 cup toasted pecans (optional)
- 1/4 cup miniature marshmallows (optional)
Combine the tofu and rice milk in a blender. Add the sorbet and banana. Blend until smooth. Add the pecans and marshmallows, if you like, and blend to the desired consistency.
I think I will be making this smoothie as a treat for myself this afternoon! Please leave your comments about this great idea, and please continue to submit your recipes to our Facebook Wall, as a comment on our Blog, or our Twitter account!
