Even I like desserts… sometimes. I’m a fan of simple, light flavors for desserts, on the rare occasion that I decide a low-amine dessert is in order. As I’m not a big baker, this is a perfect recipe for me. Similar to mousse or frozen yogurt, it’s cool, light, and refreshing – with a touch of sweet, of course.

1 cup unsweetened carob chips

1 package of soft tofu

1/4 C rice milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 pomegranate

  • Heat carob, rice milk, and vanilla extract in a double boiler (I don’t have a double boiler, so I used a high-walled pan and a small pot) until carob is completely melted. It should be a thick chocolate syrup.

  • Put block of soft tofu in food processor.
  • Add melted carob.
  • Blend till pureed.
  • Put mixture in refrigerator to chill for at least an hour.
  • Seed a pomegranate, discarding pith.
  • Once chilled, dole out into bowls, and sprinkle pomegranate seeds on top.
  • Enjoy your low-amine dessert!
