0 cup(s)

fresh blueberries

0 cup(s)

fresh raspberries

0 cup(s)

SPLENDA® Sweetener, no calorie, packets

2 Tbsp, divided

fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp

silken tofu

4½ oz, about 1/2 cup

fat free skim milk

¼ cup(s)

vanilla extract

1 Tbsp, pure variety


  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Place berries in a medium bowl; toss with 1 tablespoon of Splenda and lemon juice. Spoon into a shallow, ovenproof baking dish large enough to hold all berries in a single layer. Place dish three to four inches from broiler and cook until fruit just starts to burst, about 5 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  3. Combine tofu, milk, vanilla extract and remaining tablespoon of Splenda in a blender or bowl of a food processor and blend until smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. To serve, divide berries between 4 shallow bowls and top with vanilla sauce. Yields about 1/2 cup of berries and 1/4 cup of sauce per serving.


The custard sauce can be made in advance and be stored, covered, for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.
