    Can I do this without the tofu?

      LeeAnn, Sure. I would recommend substituting with another protein, maybe avocado?

    What about Whey protein powder as a substitute?

    If you use almond milk, doesn't that have protein? I, too, am not a fan of tofu…

      Almond milk generally has about 1 g protein per cup, whereas cow’s milk has about 8 g. You can sub an avocado for the tofu or Greek yogurt. Almond milk is fine but will not provide a great deal of protein.

      It does have protein, but not a lot. An 8 oz. glass of almond milk has 1 gram of protein.
