An easy tofu ice-cream parfait - no need for an ice-cream maker or heavy cream!
Ingredients
  • Tofu ice-cream:
  • 1 block of silken tofu
  • ½-1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ ripe banana (or less banana if you don't like the banana taste to be overwhelming)
  • 2-3 tablespoons golden syrup (depending on preferred sweetness)
  • 3 tablespoons almond powder (optional)
Assembling the parfait:
  • 1-2 golden kiwis (or other preferred fruit like strawberries or peaches), sliced thinly
  • 2 cherries (for garnishing)
  • sprinkles (optional)
Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients for making the tofu ice-cream into the blender, adding only one tablespoon of the syrup first. Blend.
  2. Add the next tablespoon of the syrup and blend again. Do a taste test. If it's sweet enough, omit the next step.
  3. Add the last tablespoon of syrup if needed and blend again, making sure that the mixture is very smooth.
  4. Transfer to a shallow pan or mould (doesn't really matter, as long as it's freezer-safe).
  5. Cover with cling wrap and freeze overnight or at least 8 hours.
  6. Remove the frozen tofu mix from the mould and cut into smaller blocks.
  7. Place the frozen pieces into the blender and whiz till it's of ice-cream consistency. You may want to split the amount into two and blend twice instead to make it easier to blend.
  8. Transfer into a serving cup, level one layer, add the sliced fruit then top with another layer of tofu ice-cream, add another layer of fruit and scoop one scoop of ice-cream on top of the fruit, top with sprinkles (optional) and cherry.
Notes
1. Preparation time excludes time needed to freeze the tofu ice-cream.
2. Cooking time refers to time taken to blend the mixture.
