It’s summertime, and the cherries are everywhere. I love them, and I may have bought too many. Here’s a good treat for when your cherries are starting to fade but are still flavorful and lovely. Oh, and if you can’t wait for it to freeze, it’s still wonderful!
4 ounces (about 1/4 package) silken tofu
¾ cup pitted and frozen cherries
½ teaspoon maple syrup, agave nectar, or confectioner’s sugar (regular sugar will make it grainy)
- Place all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and whirl until it’s well combined and creamy.
- Place into a freezer-happy vessel and let it freeze for ½ an hour to 1 hour.
Enjoy topped with fresh fruit and a sprig of mint! Or maybe some chocolate chunks or chocolate sauce.
Note: This recipe makes about ¾ cup, about half-again what’s shown in these photos.
This would be great with blueberries instead of cherries, or try blackberries, strawberries, or even plums, peaches, or nectarines!
