Tofu Cream

IMG_7644

 

A dairy free dessert for my creamy cravings. I actually feel a lot better without any dairy and have noticed that if I have any dairy I immediately suffer from a stuffy nose and a whole lot of mucus. Not very pleasant. I’m not a big tofu fan but this cream turned out surprisingly fresh and nutty. Sashenka even gave this a tiny taste and pronounced it edible but would not consume it himself. He eats tofu only in Miso soup. This cream could be used in different combinations with the help of some imagination. This was the simplest and quickest way that I chose to enjoy it.

I adapted this recipe from vegetarian times.
– ½ tsp. sea salt
– 2 Tbs. lemon juice
– 1 Tbs. vanilla extract
– 2 Tbs. maple syrup
– 2 Tbs. coconut oil
– 16 oz. firm tofu
Mix all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth and creamy like. Top with fruits and nuts or refrigerate and use in desserts.

There are a lot of variations that could be done but this is a basic one. I wanted to try the flavor of chia seeds without the added vanilla or chocolate. I enjoyed chia seed pudding and the fruit complement the pudding really well.

Ingredients

1/4 cup chia seeds
2/3 cup water

Mix water and chia seeds together and let sit in the refrigerator until pudding like. Top with fruit, nuts, and maple syrup. Enjoy!
