Arctic Lime Freeze

Oxmoor House
You're probably thinking there's no way a dessert with tofu in it could ever be good, right? Well, think again because silken tofu can give a creamy, rich texture to smoothies and frozen desserts like this one. Tofu is also a great source of protein, B vitamins, calcium, and iron—all nutrients that kids need.
