Chocolate tofu cheesecake

comments 2
cake / dessert

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 hemp milk (oh heyyyyyy calcium!) you’d be hard pressed to find a healthier cheesecake in a non-vegan recipe.  But we don’t […]

Easy vegan rocky road

dessert / treats

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 need to make this rocky road.  NOW. After creating this batch I realised that I had made a grave mistake with […]

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 similar from scratch to curb the cravings. Making honeycomb is SO much fun, but it contains SO much sugar.  This is […]

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 pile as far as naughty chocolate snacks go.  The fact that these home made ones aren’t so naughty makes them even […]

Raw chocolate orange bliss balls

dessert

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 in a – shudder – blender?!  This could be why my blender currently decided to give up the ghost and I […]

Aquafaba chocolate mousse (vegan)

dessert / treats

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 would taste any good.  So now you know, don’t throw away the aquafaba, it’s liquid GOLD. The key to this recipe […]

Peanut butter cups (vegan)

dessert / treats

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… if you were ever into the real thing!  I used crunchy peanut butter for this recipe, but feel free to use […]

Vegan “bounty” bars

dessert / treats

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.  There’s still tasty, tasty chocolate, and lots of it! So – if you like coconut, chocolate and easy-as-hell recipes, then these […]
