Can I make this in advance? Like a few hours in advance to a gathering? And store in a refrigerator or will that change the texture of the cream?
Yes you can make this in advance but make sure to keep the strawberries and the cream separate so they don’t get mushy in the fridge. You may also need to rewhip the cream before assembling the layers but it should still taste great. Let us know how it goes!
Oh my goodness! I was looking for a recipe to make use of my fresh bounty of fruits and I found a ton of recipes!
I started with this one and it did not disappoint.
Wow! So flavourful! That cardamom and lemon zest really makes the fresh fruit shine!
How long does it keep in the refrigerator?
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!!
Is their a substitute for tofu?
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.
This is where I order mine:
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.
