               Tofu: Cookies-and-Cream Ice Cream Recipes

Tofu

We know. You’re probably thinking there’s no way your child will ever touch tofu, right? Well, think again. Though not always a favorite when served whole in dishes, tofu is a kid-pleaser when used to provide a creamy base in smoothies and desserts like our Blueberry Power Smoothie and Cookies-and-Cream Ice Cream. Tofu is a great source of protein, B vitamins, calcium, and iron – all nutrients that kids often need more of for proper growth and bone health. Try one of our tofu recipes on your child, and we promise that he’ll be asking for more.

I had never thought of doing that.  I have never bought tofu, never really thought it'd be any good, but I would try something like this.

Sorry. Loading it with cookies and sugar is not how I would present a healthy food to kids. It's not good for you anymore that way.

I agree with this and soy isn't all that good for you anyway.
