Strawberry Tofu Vegan Popsicles: suitable for vegans and everyone else.
 

 

When berries are at the peak of ripeness my son sometimes complains that they’re a little too sticky sweet and tart, so I made up this popsicle recipe, which includes tofu to mellow out the sweetness. You still taste the berries, but they're less extreme. You can also make tofu pops with other fruit if you don't like strawberries.
 

Gather...

 
  • 2/3 cups organic tofu. Silken or firm – your choice - both will work.
  • 3 cups fresh strawberries (or other fruit)
  • 1/2 cup water.
 

Make...

 
  • Wash your berries and slice the ends off.
  • Toss your berries, tofu and water into the blender.
  • Blend well.
  • Pour into molds and freeze.

 

NOTE: I used Orka Ice Pop Molds to make these popsicles.

I think I might try these.Although,I think I would prefer the silken tofu for things that are suppose to be sweet.It's a little hard for me to get so I am wondering if you know what large chain stores sell it?They look really yummy!

I usually use silken - BUT because you're blending it down, firm will work too. I use what's around.

 

It's weird that tofu is hard for you to find. Literally every single store I frequent carries various types of tofu. Fred Meyers (kroger), Safeway, etc. 

 

Are you looking in the produce area - often the tofu section is there.

Regular tofu is not hard to find but I like the silken for desserts.I just thought you might know specifically who tends to carry the silken tofu.

Every store I go to has silken. But in PDX vegetarian, vegan and tofu are pretty darn common.

Well,I live in a rural area and the silken is a lot more difficult to find.I usually have to drive 45 minutes to get it.Maybe I'll just use the regular tofu and see how it comes out.

That sucks. If you want the same sort of creamy strawberry pop, but without the tofu, you can exchange soy milk (or other alternative milk) or soy yogurt for the tofu.
