berry soy-bet

What a beautiful way to get your soy, don't you think?  Just look at that lovely color!  The color, I am proud to say, is 100% natural- from the raspberries and strawberries blended into the tofu and small dabble of plain Greek yogurt.  You can make this "soy-bet") from any berries, but this is how I made this today:

Berry Soy-bet

Approximately 12-16 ounces of fresh berries (2 small 6 0z containers raspberries plus 5- strawberries  is what I used today)

1/2-pound silken tofu (1/2 of a standard container)

3 oz plain Greek yogurt (1/2 of a single-serve container)  *I imagine this ingredient could be optional*

1/2 cup sugar

Place all ingredients in a blender and whirl it till it is a uniform, smooth texture. 

Place the mixture into a sealable kitchen storage container, and place it in the freezer for about 2 hours.  While freezing, take the container out every 15 minutes and give it a quick shake.  When 2 hours pass, take the container out, open the lid, and fluff the soy-bet with a fork, and serve immediately. 

I imagine using an ice cream maker of some design would work beautifully with this recipe, too.

This yummy dessert contains isoflavones from the soy, which act as antioxidants.  The berries are rich in flavonoids and carotenoids, which are also anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory in action, not to mention having great vitamin content!
