When making desserts using tofu, most recipes will call for silken tofu, rather than firm or extra-firm tofu. This makes a big difference, so be sure you've got the right kind! Though it may seem a bit odd to make creamy desserts out of soy bean curd, the tofu usually just acts as a carrier for all the other amazing flavors, in place of dairy, or heavy cream. So enjoy these tofu-based desserts, knowing that they are mostly lower in fat than other desserts, much lower in cholesterol, and they provide a bit of protein, too!
