Tofu “Cream” – Yofu

 

Since we’ve developed dairy allergies, I’ve really missed a good creamy yoghurt. Any dairy-alternative yoghurt usually has ingredients that I choose to avoid and/or they taste absolutely disgusting.

If you’re not offended by the slight beany flavor from tofu, it is a good dairy-free alternative to yoghurt. It’s great on its own, with granola, fresh fruit and to spread on cakes. I’ve also swirled chopped tinned apricots/apricot compote through it to make a fruity-yogurty dessert, yoghurt-tofu, yofu.
