Protein powder is often expensive and hard to find in Korea. If you are looking to add some extra protein to your diet, this is a simple and delicious recipe which uses tofu (soy) as the source of protein. It’s great after a workout or if you need a pick-me-up.
Servings: 1 (this recipe can easily be doubled)
-1/2 cup milk (I used low-fat milk)
-1/4 of a 380 g package (1.5 servings) firm tofu (I like Pulmuone because it also adds fiber, see picture below)
-2 tsp instant coffee granules (optional)
-1 Tbls cocoa powder
-1 Tbls agave nectar or honey (more if you like it sweeter)
-1 Tbls Hershey’s chocolate syrup
-1/2 of a frozen medium-sized banana
*Note- you can substitute the agave/honey and cocoa powder by using 2 Tbls of chocolate syrup, but I like the added nutrition of cocoa powder. You could also sub the chocolate syrup by adding 1 more Tbls each of cocoa powder and agave/honey.
1) Mix the coffee granules, cocoa powder and milk together in a cup to dissolve. Add the agave/honey and chocolate syrup.
2) Then add all of the ingredients into a blender. Blend for about 1 minute until it is frothy and everything is mixed well.
