Serve this custard on its own, in an almond tart crust, or with a warm dessert like this apple bread pudding, for a guilt-free dairy-free treat! Healthy and easy to make, this is a staple around my house.

Feel free to experiment with this custard-- the longer you allow it to chill in the refrigerator, the firmer the custard will become. NOTE: although many recipes will require that you drain your tofu, for this recipe, just open the box and blend along with the water in the packaging.

Makes about 2 cups
