Ice Cream, Tofu (P, TNT)
Source: Unknown
Serves: 10 (Yield: 5 cups)

1 cup sugar
4 tablespoons water
4 10.5 oz packages "lite" tofu OR 2 lbs. reduced-fat, medium-firm regular tofu plus 1 cup water
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small saucepan, dissolve sugar and water over high heat. Pour the syrup in a blender with tofu, vanilla, and salt.

Blend until the mixture is very smooth, then chill thoroughly. Freeze according to the directions for your ice cream maker.

Maple Tofu Ice Cream: Use 2-1/2 cups maple syrup in place of the sugar; use the medium-firm tofu and omit the 1 cup of water used with it.

Coffee Tofu Ice Cream: Use 1-1/2 cups sugar or sucanat dissolved in 2/3 cup strong coffee or coffee substitute. Use the medium-firm tofu and omit 1/2 cup of the water used with it. You can add 1/4 cup rum or coffee liqueur, if you wish.

Poster's Notes:
These ice creams freeze up quite solidly, so let them sit out of the freezer for 1/2 hour before serving.
