Story of this recipe

I found it by chance during a trip to Hakone. When I entered a café “Mitsuki”, there was a big menu board that said “Row Tofu shake.” on it. I tried it just because it looked interesting but the taste was much better than I expected.

For you soy haters, you may notice a hint of soy, but no worries. Though I actually can’t drink soy milk myself, the sweetness, and texture made me forget about the soy. You’ll have a choice of flavors and, it would be a perfect substitute for a milkshake. The amount of  people holding a shake cup proved how delicious and popular this drink it is.

Since I loved it, I’ve been searching for a raw tofu shake in Tokyo. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find one in this big city! I was shocked though, that the reason why I ended up making a homemade tofu shake.

I made it with tofu (but not raw) + frozen banana + blueberry + maple syrup. Although I still miss the real thing, it was easier and tastier than I expected and soon became a popular breakfast at home.
