2 tablespoons maple syrup or other sweetener
24 ounces silken tofu (about 3 cups)
2 mangoes, peeled, pitted and cut into big chunks
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coconut extract, optional
1/2 large pineapple, peeled, quartered and cored
3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut


1. In a food processor or blender, put syrup, tofu, mangos, vanilla, salt and coconut extract, if desired. Puree, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary, until completely smooth, at least 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl.
