I know it has been a while...things have been crazy and I guess I haven't made anything new, or anything worth blogging about anyway. I was sick for a couple of days this week and pretty much lived on cold cereal.
But this morning I found a recipe and just had to try it. This Strawberry Tofu Fruit Dip could be used in many ways - I used it to dip sliced apples, and it was delicious. I imagine there would be other fruits that would be fun to dip. I should try it with jicama, pears, fresh pineapple, maybe even kiwi. Yummy!
Garrett and I just ate this dip and had fun making our apple slices go swimming in it. Refreshing, mostly healthy, delicious, and a good way to get more fruit into your diet. Not that I need much help in that department. I eat several fresh fruits every day. I really need to work more on getting more veggies in...Next up, a good recipe just for that!
Strawberry Tofu Fruit Dip
1/2 block silken tofu
1/4 cup pure maple syrup (or agave nectar, or brown rice syrup)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
Blend all in blender - dip away and enjoy!
