Mango Strawberry Ice Cream??
After so many recent computer glitches, I'm glad to be back. The glitches aren't necessarily fixed, but I've found different ways to maneuver without chucking the whole computer!
This "ice cream" recipe, and I use that term loosely, was developed from my hunger for something sweet and creamy. There just happened to be a mango on the counter to help with the decision. Why not use soft tofu (I heard those "yucks") and mango to whip up an ice cream -like dessert?
I learned years ago about how to transform tofu into something delicious and edible. This had to work...and it did! If hubby ate it, then it passed the taste test!
1 box of soft tofu
1 mango, peeled and cut from the seed
2 Tbsp strawberry jam or preserves
1 packet of Truvia sweetener (optional)
For garnish add a small handful of chopped almonds and mini chocolate chips or garnish of your choice.
In a food processor mix the tofu, mango and jam together. Put in the freezer to set for a few hours. Scoop and serve with favorite garnish. Okay, so it's not ice cream, but it did satisfy a craving and sometimes that's half the battle.
