This fruit and nut parfait has a delicious secret ingredient – tofu dessert! We partnered up with Sunrise Soya and are so excited to showcase their tofu desserts. That’s right, tofu isn’t just for savoury dishes! The tofu dessert comes packaged similarly to regular tofu but they are flavoured and sweet. We had never tried tofu dessert before but after we made this parfait we realized how delicious and versatile it is. I’m always looking for more protein wherever I can get it, so it’s an added bonus that each tofu dessert portion comes with 5 grams of plant based protein! You can make parfaits, popsicles, smoothie bowls and so much more with these delicious desserts.
They come in five different flavours – plain, almond, coconut, mango and banana. The best part is how easy and simple working with it is. We made this parfait by blending almond flavoured tofu dessert with some yummy nut butter and other ingredients listed below. It turned out amazing. For us, we prefer our desserts not to be overly sweet. This parfait has the perfect amount of sweetness to us! We hope you give this fruit and nut parfait a try and see that dessert can be healthy and satisfying! Enjoy.
