The holidays are a time full of beautiful, glorious, food! Tables of side dishes and sweets from your friends and family! I have prepared these delicious vegan treats for your enjoyment.
Bring one of these vegan desserts to your next holiday gathering! I recommend to attempt to eat these in moderation. I am a big dessert person, so curb that sweet tooth with something with real ingredients! Each recipe has instructions and ingredients to make it yourself. I also have provided reviews from close friends and family members on their opinion of the vegan treats! Let’s take a bite!
Recipe One: Black Bean Brownies
These were so easy to make. I was able to find a brownie mix that contains no milk or eggs at my local grocery store. Just blend those black beans with water and fold them into the brownie mix. WOW they are very yummy!
Here’s the recipe card:
“What’s in these? Wait there’s beans in there? What, so good, is there more?”
“Very Dense, Moist. I would make these again. Really Easy to make.”
“I was hesitant at first because that doesn’t sound good at all. Pretty Good. I usually don’t like chocolate, this is rich, moist and I would eat these again.”
Recipe Two: Lemon Larabar Bites
Again a very manageable recipe. Next time I would double the recipe if I made it for a large holiday party. This is perfect for a small family gathering. The original recipe called for dates which I replaced with dried cranberries. I used my Magic bullet to grind up the almond, cashews and cranberries. This treat is very simple because you put everything into the bowl mix it up let it harden in the fridge. Then, roll it up and add a little lemon for pizazz! Instant crowd pleaser.
Here’s the recipe card:
“Needed a little more lemon, good consistency, I enjoyed it”
“Perfect for on the go snacking, I would use these as a mid day pick up!”
“Wow what a nutty, great treat, I would give these to my grandpa. He’s a lemon fan!”
Recipe Three: No Dairy Ice Cream
This recipe I make for myself, a fruit popsicle with coconut milk! A must try! Checkout this website that provides 14 vegan recipes for banana ice cream to frozen “fro-yo”. Thanks Reader’s Digest for compiling all these ingenious recipes in one place.
