Ingredients and Substitutions

Black coffee –  You could also use cold brew coffee, but I find that black coffee works just as well! If you don’t want to use coffee, you could try using decaf green tea.

Silken tofu –   This is my favorite kind of tofu to use in this recipe, but you could also use firm tofu. If you’re not a fan of tofu, you could try using plant-based milk like almond or coconut milk.

Unsweetened cacao powder –  This gives the drink a lovely chocolate flavor, but you could also use cocoa powder.

Pitted dates –  I like to use dates because they add a lovely sweetness to the drink, but you could also use honey or maple syrup.
