Strawberry Tofu Dessert (No Added Sugar)

Tofu is a brilliant ingredient; way more versitile that just a meat replacement. Silken tofu especially can be used for all kinds of things and is one of my favourite dairy replacements in sweet treats.

It does need some help though. Tofu is bland – the perfect blank canvas. I have made Tofu Chocolate ‘mouse’ before but it requires a lot of sugar to sweeten which I am trying to avoid at the moment. So I took a leaf out of my smoothie book and decided I would use fruit this time and not add any sugar or syrup.

Recipe

1 block of Silken Tofu
Frozen Strawberries
1 sachet Stevia (optional)

(I used the same volume of strawberries as Tofu, not the same weight. Just fill the tofu package with the berries)

Microwave the frozen strawberries for up to 2 minutes to release the juices. Put everything into a blender and blend until completely smooth. It will have more of a yogurt texture due to the liquid from the fruit but you would never guess that there is no added sugar. Chill for at least 30 minutes and then enjoy.
