Easy No-cook Nofu Ice Cream!

I warned you I would be "playing" with the new Navy Bean Nofu.

It was too soft to dry fry. Even after I dried and pressed it for awhile. Which gave me a terrific excuse to use it with sugar!

Over the last few months I have been reading a lot of Vegan blogs because they know how to use Tofu/Nofu in nearly magical ways. I have seen cheesecakes,puddings, whipped, and more. They often use a product called silken soy tofu. I am guessing it is probably softer, and lighter like my navy bean nofu.

Had blueberry syrup in the fridge. Decided to try mixing it with the nofu. First, a terrific violent color! Abby cannot eat a whole lot of veggies or fruits yet and no chemicals or artificial colors so often her food is "blah" in color. Anytime we have food with great color I have to admit it makes it more appealing to eat. Second, you really cannot taste the Navy Bean nofu without the blueberry, so with the blueberry syrup you would have no idea what you were eating.:-) I have been wanting ice cream because I have had some TMJ trouble and cold foods seem to sooth,which lead me to throwing this purple stuff into the ice cream machine! Good thing I did! Yum!

1/2 cup navy bean nofu
1/2 cup homemade(or clean)blueberry syrup
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk

dash of pink himalayan salt
squeeze of a fresh lemon

Mix well until smooth and pour into your ice cream maker.

That easy! No cooking, no eggs.. gf/sf/df/cf/nf/ef etc!

How awesome! What an easy yummy treat!

On a side note I wanted to just say I am a huge fan of you. I think you are so amazing! I keep meaning to post but something happens and the comments never get out there. It is amazing you took your daughter to that allergist and even though you didn't understand for years it was able to bring you to where you are now. The fight you have done for your daughter is amazing. You are such an awesome mom. Thanks for sharing your story with us.

I think after years of doing what was "expected" by Specialists and realizing perhaps that often what specialists tell us to do isn't right or healthy for our kids I feel the need to say something. Seems like there are few different ways to do the Mito journey- 1)the protocol and dr visits 2) raising the kids by your gut 3) a combo attempt. Our favorite Drs. often tell us now how often they wish other parents would quit with all the pointless medical treatments and focus on the basics first- and they say Abby is proof positive that sometimes too much medical care just leads to more medical care- a lack of common sense they say- I still feel pretty alone out there with this though :-) It is hard to be one of the few to reject the current philosophies on mito care- but have a number of families that have reached out and are doing the same now with their kids and are tickled by the improvements and fewer dr visits LOL hang in there, you are finding your way with Matt.

I think you are an amazing inspiration to families. I mentioned you to another mom today on the mito call. I am starting to really think that with Matt we are not dealing with mito... but I hate not knowing... I just want answers. I know you have been there too.. it is hard.

Despite the depletion findings on biopsy, I feel strongly it is caused by something- the question is what? So I think Abby has secondary mito deletion. I think a lot of kids probably have a secondary form of mito- the hard part is figuring out the primary- and the big question is always, can the primary be treated? Hang in there Jenna, you will get your answers.
