Cyndi, he says in the info about the recipe that this was originally used in raw foods cookbooks for use with desserts. Could make a really yummy substitute for Cool Whip in things like the PB Cup, or for desserts like that pie someone was trying to make.
I think it has some serious possibilities!
WW, I love using other things to thicken soups--I received an immersion blender last Christmas, and it's made pureeing soups SOOO much easier. I make tons of them now.
