I saw this fabulous sounding shake on a menu somewhere while I was browsing around on the internet (yes, I browse menus from time to time! hah!) and I knew that I just HAD to make it right THEN. Of course I had to make stuff up as I went to make this vegan and Plant Strong but that wouldn't be a problem. I ran out and got my supplies to get testing.
Oh and of course I had to make some without alcohol for my 3 year old and she loved the creamy strawberry shake with just a bit of grape juice instead of the champagne. Also she loved how I balanced the strawberry on the rim of the glass. So wonderful what kids appreciate, isn't it?
Strawberry Champagne Shake
makes 2-4 servings (depending on how big you like your shakes!)
- 12oz (about 1 cup) silken tofu (such as Mori-nu Soft Silken Tofu)
- 1 lb frozen strawberries (I like to buy my own fresh, chop and freeze them so I know they are good quality when they go in!)
- 1.5 cups champagne or sparkling white wine or sparkling grape juice for a non-alcoholic version!
- sweetener of your choice to taste (I used a few drops of Stevia because my strawberries weren't terribly sweet)
Blend everything together in your blender until it's smooth! Serve up enjoy.
