Notes:

  • Silken tofu is far different from regular tofu that people use to cook with. It is very soft, almost jelly like, and very creamy. It makes for an awesome dairy substitute with all the protein minus the lactose.
  • Frozen banana provides extra fiber, potassium, sweetness, and some thickness to this recipe.
