Mandarin Vanilla Super Shake

Luc is still sick although seemingly on the mend and hasn't vomited for about 48 hours and his fever has broken. However, understandably he has no appetite and the only thing he would eat was a couple crackers in the last few days. He is uninterested in the usual bland sick foods and all he keeps asking for is milk and fruit. 

I didn't want to give him dairy while his tummy was still very sensitive, so I made this shake which is dairy-free but still creamy and a little fruity.  It was also delicious! Luc actually wanted to drink it and it stayed in him. We will be making this tasty shake, which is full of protein, iron, whole grains, and vitamin c, whenever we have mandarins on hand!

Mandarin Vanilla Super Shake

- 1 mandarin orange
- 1 half-pack (150 grams) soft tofu
- 1/2 cup ground rolled oats
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 tbsp ground flax seeds
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp mandarin orange zest
- 1 tbsp agave nectar 

Grate the 1 tsp of zest off your mandarin orange, then peel and section. Combine all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor (I used a beaker and immersion blender) and blend until smooth and creamy.
