I could bathe in this stuff it is so yummy! I only had organic silken tofu, not the firm so my cream was a bit runny, but oh so yummy. The lemon zest and cardamon make it amazing!!

Looks delicious: Question: I do not see “silken” Tofu in any of the stores where I would normally buy Tofu, just extra firm , firm, medium firm, etc. Is “silken” a common variety? I see it in many of the recipes in Forks over Knives.

Gale,

Silken tofu is shelf stable and comes in a 12.3 oz box. I find it at Sprouts, but most of the time I order it online. I hope this is helpful.

Loved this! The cardamom and lemon zest just add that exrtra ‘something’. Going to be a favourite whilst strawberries are in season. Thank you!

This is a super fresh and delicious treat—I love the pop the lemon zest adds! I recommend blending 15-30 seconds longer than you might think you should just to make sure the dates get properly broken down and incorporated.
