Chocolate tofu cheesecake

How do you make a “healthy” dessert that doesn’t look or taste healthy?  Make this vegan chocolate cheesecake with silken tofu.  EASY. Ok ok, there’s plenty of chocolate in here but when you hold that up against the silken tofu (all that protein!), the dates (so fibrous!), the almonds (hello vitamin E!) and the hempContinue reading “Chocolate tofu cheesecake”

Easy vegan rocky road

In my quest to veganise every single type of chocolate treat I have ever had in my life, the time has come to give the rocky road a once over.  I like a basic rocky road – nothing fancy, not too many ingredients, and easy to make.  If that sounds like you then you needContinue reading “Easy vegan rocky road”

Vegan chocolate honeycomb

Another flashback to my youth in the land down under – Violet Crumble anyone?  Crunchie perhaps?  Gone are the days spending pocket money on a king sized Crunchie chocolate bar for morning tea (or sometimes for breakfast, alongside a packet of Twisties… how am I not dead?!), so now I have to make something similarContinue reading “Vegan chocolate honeycomb”

Vegan cherry ripe

Is there such a thing as Cherry Ripe chocolate bars in the UK?  If there is, I haven’t found one yet.  And who cares anyway, because you can make them yourself! I used to demolish Cherry Ripe bars when I was living in Australia, and along with Bounty bars they were top of the pileContinue reading “Vegan cherry ripe”

Raw chocolate orange bliss balls

I have now officially moved into the big time of small time cooking (!) – I bought a proper food processor.  Can you believe I’ve gone this long without one?  Crazy. Making foods like these raw chocolate orange balls had been difficult previously – ever tried to make falafel by hand?  Or cheesecake crust inContinue reading “Raw chocolate orange bliss balls”

Aquafaba chocolate mousse (vegan)

I’ve been eyeing off aquafaba (chickpea brine) mousse recipes on the internet for months now so decided to pull my finger out on the weekend and give it a try. Chickpea brine smells SO gross, so I was hugely skeptical at first as to whether you could make something out of the stuff that wouldContinue reading “Aquafaba chocolate mousse (vegan)”

Peanut butter cups (vegan)

You want easy and tasty?  You got it.  Not sure if I know of a recipe easier than this – two ingredients and easy assembly peanut butter cups. TWO ingredients guys.  Two. If you’re a fan of peanut butter and dark chocolate like I am, then you’ll love this.  Tastes like the real thing… ifContinue reading “Peanut butter cups (vegan)”

Vegan “bounty” bars

Thought it might be an idea to start off the blog with one of my favourite treats – vegan Bounty bars. I was a huge fan of Bounty bars before going vegan, and this just goes to show that you don’t actually give anything up if you make the switch to a plant based lifestyle. Continue reading “Vegan “bounty” bars”
