Why not make this version of ambrosia that can be enjoyed by your vegetarian and non veg friends! It doesn't lack for taste, really.

This was really good! It was my first time making a sauce using tofu, and I was surprised how well it worked! Instead of sugar, I used agave nectar- also added a bit of vanilla to the sauce as well. Had the kids helping with the fruit prep, and it was ready in no time! 5 stars for sure!!!
