      My kids love these fantastic (and nutritious) waffles and I love it when they eat them.  The only problem is that

      they usually end up just putting regular old syrup on them.  So I was determined to spend some time in the kitchen

      and make a topping that was a littlle healthier than Aunt Jemima. 

      One of the greatest things to put on waffles is whipped cream!  But knowing what I know about dairy, and also knowing

      that the chemicals in the "Non-dairy whipped topping" are just as bad for me, I have been left without an alternative - unilt now!!!

      I was so happy when I came up with a delicious version of whipped "cream".  My kids were almost as excited as I was!

      The homemade blueberry syrup topped with the whipped "cream" was a big hit!

       

       

      WHIPPED "CREAM"

       

      1 package of soft Silken Tofu

      1/2 cup soy milk

      1/3 cup maple syrup

      1 tsp pure vanilla extract (I just used the Costco brand)

      2 TBS of a thickener called "Ultra Gel" - optional (don't worry if you don't have it, the taste won't be any different)

      Put all the ingredients in a high-powered blender and blend until smooth.

       

       

      BLUEBERRY SYRUP

       

      1 cup of water

      2 TBS cornstarch

      2/3 cup agave nectar or brown rice syrup

      1/4 tsp nutmeg (for a real treat try grinding it fresh)

      Bring these ingredients to a boil for 2 minutes.

      Add 2 cups of blueberries (fresh or frozen)

      Take off the heat and add 2 TBS of lemon juice
