I admit I’ve been having my troubles with vegan baking endeavors… One of my grandmothers used to have her own bakery, so she was a baker by trade. Whenever we visit her, we are served delicious homemade cakes. Since going vegan, I have been trying to bring baked vegan goods, but was always a little ashamed because they couldn’t keep up with her cakes in the slightest. I have tried a few vegan cakes, muffins and brownies and apart from this raw-vegan cheesecake (which technically doesn’t count as baking), I was never happy with the result. Never!
When I think of prunes, I always have to think of Louis Litt from the show ‘Suits’ because he likes to drink his “prunies”. This warming winter breakfast incorporates prunes in a different way, but I’m sure Louis would enjoy it equally!
Yes, I did it! I finally made my first vegan cheesecake. After craving the Cheesecake Factory for the past few weeks, I decided to try making a vegan cheesecake. And I must say, I was extremely amazed!! This raw vegan cheesecake is made almost entirely from nuts and has a consistency that comes pretty close to the real deal. I topped it with passion fruit, which was a perfect combination! You can also top it with caramel sauce or any other kind of fruit. Ingredients: 130 g almonds 200 g cashews (unsalted) 75 g dates (pitted) 60 g agave syrup 75 g coconut oil 75 ml lemon juice 0.5 tsp vanilla powder 1 tsp cinnamon water Instructions: Soak almonds & cashews in water separately for 2 – 12 hours. Blend dates & almonds in a food processor to create a sticky mass. Add water & cinnamon and blend briefly until the mixture is sticky. Line a 18 cm springform pan with baking paper and fill pan with the mixture. Press mixture onto bottom & sides …
When I was little, my mom would make semolina pudding on the weekends or when I was sick and decorate it with colorful little sugar hearts. So for me, there are special memories connected to warm breakfast puddings like this one.
In the last few weeks, I have dramatically reduced my Nicecream consumption. Now that it’s a little bit colder, I am preferring oats for breakfast instead of the cooling Nicecream I ate during the summer.. However, I still like to eat it for dessert. 🙂 This green Nicecream is perfect for the afternoon – it wakes you up and gives you an extra energy boost for the rest of the day!
When I get the frozen bananas out of my freezer, it’s usually to make Nicecream. But this particular summer day, I just wanted a chocolate milkshake. Sometimes I miss having milkshakes. I used to love getting chocolate or vanilla milkshakes at fastfood restaurants when I was younger! But thinking about all the unhealthy & nasty stuff they put in there, I don’t feel the need to go there anymore. Much to my surprise, I created this absolutely delicious, thick and HEALTHY vegan chocolate milkshake!
Almost every time I make Nicecream, I try a different combination. You can put almost anything in it, so lately I have gotten really creative. This version is more of a classic, however, and it is probably my favorite so far. Hazelnut Nicecream with a chocolate drizzle!
Hold on to your chair. This cookie dough is actually vegan, only made of 4 ingredients and you won’t believe what the main ingredient is! Don’t judge until you’ve tried it.
I have fallen in love with Nanaicecream ever since I discovered it on Instagram! The fact that you can make ice cream out of bananas is pretty spectacular 🙂 And you can add just about anything you want to it!
If you are looking for a super rich, but healthy treat, you have come to the right place! These raw, vegan snickers bites (I guess you could also call it peanut butter chocolate fudge) are a healthier replacement for chocolate. If you have a sweet tooth like me, and need your occasional chocolate fix, these will let you have it without feeling bad about it!
