Who knew that nutritional yeast could be made sweet?
I went into this thinking, “Okay, this is either going to be really disgusting or absolutely amazing.” Luckily, it was the latter. And the best part? Okay, the second best part? It adds so much of a protein punch, which is often elusive for us vegans. I’ve been dabbling with some protein powders, but it’s hard to find something really unprocessed, so nutritional yeast is a great solution. This smoothie packs more than 10 grams of delicious, creamy protein. Drink up… it’s a great recharge after your morning workout.
Strawberry Cheesecake Smoothie
5 medium strawberries, cored
1 cup almond milk
1/5 package light firm tofu
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
1 tsp vanilla extract
stevia to taste
ice (optional) or pinch of guar gum, xantham gum, or 2 tsp of flax for a thicker smoothie (and more protein!)
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Enjoy!
