For best results, use ONLY silken tofu.

Yum! Very easy to make, my kids help me make it too which was fun. I did not have honey, so just added a few tsps of white sugar. I tasted it before adding the sugar and probably could have gotten away without the sugar or honey, it would have just been more tart and less sweet! Worked very well with the sugar if you are stuck. I used Silken Tofu.

PLEASE use the specified type of tofu, i.e. SILKEN TOFU, otherwise expect disappointing results. Silken tofu is very creamy to start with and blends well with the fruits. All other types of tofu will bring an unpleasing texture. Please do follow the instructions!!!

Maybe I used the wrong tofu, maybe the tofu was "off" but this was not appetizing at all. I used medium-firm tofu (from the deli section of our grocery store) and it blended up nice and smooth. The smell alone should have been enough to let me know that I wasn't going to like it, but I tasted it anyways. Yuck. My kids gave it a try and didn't like it either. Three strikes...we'll spare my husband. I loved the idea so maybe I'll give it a shot with some other kind of tofu someday. Otherwise, we'll just stick to berries alone.

I used whatever tofu was available at the market and I have a feeling that makes a HUGE difference in how this comes out. Alas, mine was gritty and the berries weren't enough to cut the taste and smell of the tofu. I will definitely look for silken tofu to try this again. I also really need a more powerful blender because my little one was unable to break down the tofu without adding orange juice.

The tofu flavour wasn't enough to cut the tartness of the berry mic for us. I might try it again using frozen fresh strawberries or blueberries and more sweetener, and I would probably put in some gelatin to set it better.
