    TheCookinMom's Note:

    I have young children with food allergies to milk, eggs, and chocolate who wanted mint chocolate chip ice cream. I credit a recipe posted by LonghornMama from Cooking Light magazine for ice cream using tofu. I altered it quite a bit, playing around with the flavors, and I turned it into an allergy free treat. Thanks to LonghornMama for the start to this recipe!

    Ingredients:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (12 1/3 ounce) package mori-nu firm silken tofu (this company supports use of their product in uncooked recipes)
    • 1 cup soymilk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 3/4 teaspoon alcohol free peppermint extract (we got ours from the local health foods store)
    • 3 -4 drops green food coloring (optional)
    • 1 1/2 cups thawed whipped topping (Hip Whip is a vegan alternative if you want to go milk protein free)
    • 1/4 cup vegan carob chips

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine tofu, soy milk, vanilla, salt, sugar, peppermint flavoring, and food coloring in the blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
    2. 2
      Fold in the thawed whipped topping.
    3. 3
      Pour into the ice cream maker (we use the Rival brand with the freezer canister, so there's no ice or salt mess to deal with).
    4. 4
      Freeze according to ice cream maker directions (with our Rival brand we freeze for at least 30 minutes).
    5. 5
      Add carob chips during the last 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Spoon into an airtight container and put into the refrigerator freezer for an additional hour to finish firming up.
    7. 7
      Serve and enjoy!
    8. 8
      Variations for other flavors:.
    9. 9
      Omit the peppermint flavoring and carob chips and use the following instead: Add approximately 1/4 cup strawberry ice cream topping to the blended mixture, and then add fresh strawberries (amount determined by your preference) at the end. OR, Cookies and cream variation: Add crushed iced oatmeal cookies (check package for the ones that are dairy and egg free) to the final stage of the freezing process.

      Wow! It's a good thing my little ice cream maker would only hold half a batch, because I ate the whole thing! Since I now have half a package of tofu, I'm going to try this with strawberries-Ooh! or maybe bananas!-tomorrow. Maybe both! Thanks for the yummy treat and for giving me a reason to go through the stuff-left-in-the-basement-after-the-move and find the ice cream maker! Reviewed for Healthy Choices ABC tag.
