Creamy Soy Yogurt
1 1/2 lbs. (3 cups) soft/silken tofu (organic of course)
3 Tbsp. unrefined organic sweetener
3 Tbsp. maple syrup*
2 bananas, peeled, frozen, sliced
2 bananas, ripe (spotted), sliced
1/4 cup organic fruit juice
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup frozen berries
1-2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1. Gently rinse and drain tofu.
2. In a blender or food processor, blend all ingredients together until creamy. Chill in the freezer then serve just before frozen.
- For a thicker consistency, use a food processor and omit some liquid if desired.
*To produce maple syrup, sap has to be collected and boiled down. During the boiling, a drop of lard, shortening or vegetable oil is sometimes added to prevent the sap from foaming up, and this ingredient is not listed on the label. When buying maple syrup, look for the kosher symbol, or call the company to see that they use vegetable-based defoamers.
