Triple Berry "Yogurt"

Creamy. Cool. Refreshing. Yogurt has always been one of those snacks that I love and look forward to. Non-dairy versions can be more expensive and harder to find. So, why not make a similar version? It's simpler than you think and I promise, kids and adults alike will never know the secret ingredient is tofu. That is, unless you tell them. If you aren't quite ready to jump into 'tofu yogurt'...I know, it sounds funky...you can add the silken tofu to a fruit smoothie for added protein and isoflavones. You taste buds can't tell, but your body will be thanking you for all that plant based protein.
Triple Berry "Yogurt"

1 12oz package of silken tofu, drained (I used the Nasoya brand found in the refrigerated section with other tofu)
1 cup mixed frozen berries
1 tablespoon maple syrup
1 teaspoon lemon juice

1. Place all ingredients in a blender and mix evenly. Adjust fruit and sweetness to your liking. Top with Kashi GOLean Crunch (as pictured), other favorite cereal, or additional fruit.
