That’s right folks, the pink lady is BACK!

I couldn’t help myself last week while I was sipping on glass after glass of princess nectar and practicing my newfound love for winter exhibitionism…I just had to see how it would taste with a little vegan spin on it!

Oh ok, you got me…I totally ran out of cottage cheese! But I DID have a package of my favorite extra firm tofu from Trader Joe’s that was only two MONTHS out of date!

See, I’m getting better! 😉

I also decided to mix things up a bit and added some grated ginger which I thought gave it a little  “ohhh, what IS that?” flavor. Yet another reason fresh ginger reigns supreme!

The thickness and creaminess of this version is just as great as the original and it still only takes MINUTES to make…unless you forget the avocado on the first go-around, spill the carob powder, and then have to pick out a piece of spoon from the bottom of the blender…

Wait, whaaaaaaat?!
