Mexican Chocolate Protein Shake Recipe

Mexican Chocolate Protein Shake Recipe

In the city of Oaxaca in southern Mexico, there are markets dedicated to the local chocolate. Cacao beans are ground in a mill along with almonds, cinnamon sticks, and sugar to make a thick paste that's blended with water to make an absolutely delicious version of hot chocolate. Here we combine those same flavors with soy milk and tofu to make this protein-powered start to the morning.
