      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!!!

      I made this for New Year's Day--my husband and son loved it. We have been eating a vegan diet for nine months now----and this made a beautiful, healthy dessert. The tofu dressing was very tasty. The only thing I might try next time is eliminate the coconut---not really needed. Thanks for sharing, Tish.
