Faux Almond Float

Faux Almond Float

Almond Float is a popular Asian (I believe it’s Chinese) dessert, at least in Hawaii.nIt’s essentially a fruit cocktail with some floating cubes of almond-flavored gel.nOf course, the gel is usually a sugar and gelatin mix. So I thought, why not cut out some sugar and increase the protein by using tofu instead?
