Almond Energy Blast (Phase 1)
You’ll go nuts for this creamy drink. Fresh almonds, along with silken tofu, yogurt, and soy milk, offer a satiating punch of protein that will help you power through the morning. This one whips up quickly in a blender and travels well in a thermos for breakfast on the go. Silken tofu, available at health food stores and many supermarkets, is great for shakes and smoothies because of its smooth texture.
