With the hot weather, I've been into finding more refreshing, lighter snacks. Almond tofu fits that category perfectly. It's easy to make from a mix, is served cold, and satisfies my sweet tooth. For those who haven't had almond tofu, it's basically a gelatin that is almond flavored. It's usually served cold with fruit cocktail.
You can buy the mix to make almond tofu from most asian grocery stores. This is the one I bought:
Following the directions, you simply boil the mix with 4 1/2 cups of boiling water, then put it in a container and let it cool in the fridge and gel together for approximately 2 hours. I usually put the mixture in a 11 x 13 pan, so that I can cut it into small cubes after.
After that, you can serve with fruit cocktail of your choice. I enjoy using the tropical flavored ones that you can find in Asian grocery stores because they have papaya, nato de coco (a chewy jelly made of coconut). Sometimes I also add a canned lychee. I also usually add additional nata de coco.
