Different Ingredients I don't want tofu. Is there a substitute or different ingredient instead of tofu?

I like to use frozen banana and a handful of ice cubes. This makes it very thick. Sometimes I like to add a teaspoon of cinnamon and/or a shot of espresso. Yum!! Pros: Low cal, high protein Cons: Have to wash out the blender after...

This is a tasty smoothie but no way does it provide 10 grams of fiber per serving as the nutritional info states.

SO YUMMY!!! It tastes so good, it's hard to believe it's good for you. My alteration was to half the cocoa as suggested by other reviews and use half the honey. I also added a Tbsp of chia seeds. Will be making this often, probably with yogart (instead of tofu since I rarely have tofu on hand). Pros: healthy and delicious Cons: just a few adjustments

Healthy Delicious I went out to the shops and purchased all the required ingredients and made it to specification, it was delicious. I will definitely be making another one of these smoothies in the coming days! Pros: Good for you, tastes delicious

TOO MUCH COCOA Followed the recipe as is. But than it contains too much cocoa, to the point where that is all you taste. I definitely suggest cutting the 2 tablespoons of cocoa by half (to only 1 tbsp) and adding an extra 1/3 cup of milk to balance out the cocoa. I also would replace the honey with sugar as it compliments the cocoa better if you can.

Changed it up a little to reduce calories! I drink this smoothie or a fruit smoothie almost every day for breakfast! To reduce calories I only use 1 tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder instead of 2, I use 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk instead of soy (20 calories), I reduce the honey and use a little less of the tofu. Then I add ice and a frozen banana. It's delish!! Pros: Chocolaty, Low Calorie

Pretty good I tried this for the first time and will try again with some changes. I used almond/coconut milk instead of soy since I was getting soy with tofu. The chocolate taste is overwhelming, so I will definitely cut that in half. My banana wasn't perfectly ripe, so I didn't get a great banana flavor. I think I will try with half chocolate and a tablespoon of peanut butter. I've been looking for a protein packed (non berry) smoothie for a pre boot camp workout for a while, so hopefully it will give me the energy today!

I just tried this recipe but tweaked it because I did not have all the ingredients. I used 1/2 cup of Organic Fat Free milk, 2 ripe bananas, 4 ice cubes, 2 tbsp of Unsweetened Hershey Coco powder, 1 Tbsp of flax seed and some Organic crunchy PB. It has a nice chocolate & nutty taste!
