Berry Tofu Cream

A tasty cream substitute or mousse that is suitable for Dairy Free, Raw and Vegan diets.



The base ingredient of this flavoured and sweetened cream is tofu. I have used strawberries, although any berry is suitable. In cooler months, use other fruits such as soaked dates, pureed pear or mango.

Diets for which Berry Tofu Cream is suitable:

Dairy Free, Diabetic, Fodmap, gluten Free, Low Calorie, Low Fat, Nut Free, Raw, Vegetarian and Vegan.

Ingredients

Preparation: 10 mins | Serves: 2 cups

200gm (1 cup) tofu
2 tbsp maple syrup*
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup strawberries**

Method

WASH and dry the berries.
COMBINE all ingredients and blend until smooth (adjusting the quantity of syrup dependant on the fruit and your taste).
REFRIGERATE the cream for later use.

Serve

– Dip for fresh fruit.
– Cream substitute.
– Mousse style dessert.


Note

* Adjust syrup quantity to taste and substitute with agave syrup, honey or artificial sweetener such as Stevia for Diabetic and Low Calorie diets.
** Use any berries or other fruit. Lime juice and rind are particularly good blended with blackberries.
