I am usually not the biggest fan of pudding. But this one is…..amazing. The cocoa powder gives the pudding a more bitter flavor than most, but a dash of vanilla and salt balance it out perfectly.
Enough talk, lets get straight to the recipe!
Vegan Chocolate pudding
Makes 3 servings
1 pack silken tofu
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup + 2 tbsp. maple syrup (or more to reach desired sweetness, add in a tablespoon at a time)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
Blend all ingredients in a food processor until fully combined. Place in bowl and chill for at least one hour. Serve with vegan whipped cream, graham cracker crumbs, and vegan marshmallows.
I am not good at blogging often! I blame school. Anyway, I recently turned 16 and took a trip to disney! Fun stuff.
So fun! I also have two recipes coming up soon- one of them includes this (yes I realize it’s terribly late)
It is October…which means sweets! But I have to admit, I am not a candy addict. Still, October is an excuse to eat lots of extra sweets. So I decided to make my favorite dessert-with a twist! Brownies are by far one of my favorite desserts! And coconut just takes them over the top. Lets do this!
Coconut Brownie “Pie”
1/4 cup chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
2 tbsp. cocoa powder
1/4 cup almond milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup Earth Balance (or organic butter)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup WWP flour
2 tbsp. powdered sugar
2 tsp. cocoa powder
1 tsp. earth balance
1-3 tbsp. milk to thin out
1/2-3/4 cup dried coconut shreds
Preheat oven to 375 F. In a microwave or double boiler melt the chocolate chips. Quickly add cocoa powder, milk, pumpkin, and earth balance. Stir until combined. Slowly stir in one egg at a time. Gently fold in brown sugar and flour. Place in a pie pan (glass) and bake for 20- 25 minutes. While the brownie is cooling, mix together frosting. Mix sugar, cocoa, earth balance, and desired amount od milk until you reach desired consistency. Cover cooled brownie with frosting. Add dried coconut shreds completely over the frosting until it is all covered.
These. Are. Perfect. Not too sweet, but definitely sweet enough to satisfy any Halloween craving. The coconut flakes added the most wonderfully satisfying CRUNCH!
Sometimes after a looooong day at school, a girl just needs some bread. Am I right, or am I right?
Vegan Cheezy Garlic Bread
*enough for half of one large loaf of bread*
2 TBSP Earth Balance, softened
1 1/2 TBSP nutritional yeast
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. oregano + more for garnish
1/2 loaf of fresh french bread
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine Earth Balance, nutritional yeast, minced garlic, garlic salt, and oregano. Spread over half of a loaf of French bread (cut lengthwise). Garnish with extra oregano. Bake in oven for about 10 minutes or until top is crusty and golden. Serve along with pasta!
If you’re in school, how has your year been so far? What food comforts you after a looooong day?
I told you guys how I got some products from Swanson Health the other day right? Well, I also received some Spelt Flour and Organic Coconut shreds that I used to make some a-maz-ing waffles. If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can totally make pancakes with them. They are so delicious, you have to make them in some form.
Coconut Waffles or Pancakes
Serves 3 (About 6 waffles)
1 1/2 cups spelt flour
1/4 cup shredded coconut
2 tbsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. coconut oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract (or coconut!)
1 1/2 cups coconut milk (or any other milk)
Preheat waffle maker or griddle. In a bowl combine flour, coconut, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, vanilla, and milk. Slowly stir in flour. Follow waffle makers instructions, or make pancakes by lining pan with butter, then using 1/4 cup batter for each pancake. Flip on other side when the top begins to bubble. Cook on other side for about 2 more minutes. Serve with honey or syrup and additional coconut shreds!
Possible variations: adding almond extract, chocolate chips, almonds, walnuts, cocoa powder, or pineapple.
I actually really loved how the spelt flour made these waffles extra fluffy inside. Mmm! I definitely recommend these!
