My daughter, Jazlyn, is anaphylactic to egg, dairy, peanuts, and tree nuts. When she was first diagnosed, I found it very difficult to find recipes and foods that didn't taste like "allergy" food. Over the last 15 years I have had a lot of fun developing and changing recipes so that they are safe for her. I love to share my recipes so that other families can realize how yummy "allergy" foods can taste. You don't have to sacrifice taste or your favorite foods, you just have to rethink how to make them. I made a promise to Jazzy that I would do my very best to find a way for her to eat any food she wants to try. So far I have been able to keep that promise. I hope your family enjoys these recipes as much as we do.

Egg Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free Tofu Chocolate Mousse and Ice Cream

Tofu was on sale so I bought several packages. We made scrambled "eggs" and banana yogurt. I still had two packages left over so I decided to try and make some ice cream. Jazlyn wanted chocolate so I threw a few ingredients together and it turned out the thick consistency of a chocolate mousse. It was good and rich as the mousse, but it was also good after being frozen into ice cream. I'm not a big tofu fan, but this mousse was good. The amounts of the flavorings will vary depending how much of a chocolate flavor you desire.

Tofu Chocolate Mousse and Ice Cream

14 oz firm tofu
1/4 - 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
1/2 - 1 tsp vanilla extract
2 - 4 tbsp cocoa powder
2 - 4 tbsp sugar

Place all of the ingredients into the blender then process until smooth and thoroughly combined. Eat immediately as a chocolate mousse or freeze into ice cream.
*  If the ice cream is too hard to scoop, microwave it briefly to soften.
*  For an extra chocolately treat, top with safe chocolate chips and additional chocolate syrup.
