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?

- 1 ~14-oz can of fruit cocktail mix, mandarin oranges, or other favorite fruit in syrup (traditionally it’s syrup, but water or natural juices are okay too)
- -OR- equivalent fresh fruit and juice
- Approx 1/3 – 1/2 cup (depends on preference) amaretto flavoring syrup (I used Da Vinci brand sugar free Amaretto)
- TofuXpress with #2 (light tension) spring
