Vegan Dessert Cups

I have a major sweet tooth and it shows, I’m never going to be a supermodel with a six pack and hey that’s okay.

Sometimes I do try keep it ‘clean’ though so that I can have a delicious treat without feeling too guilty.

One thing I love about any vegan or ‘healthy’ treats is that they are so dam easy to make. This one is no exception, create your layers and store them in the fridge to enjoy.

Makes 4

Ingredients:

For the Ice cream

2 tins coconut milk

2 tbs agave

1 tsp vanilla essence

½ cup almond milk

For the caramel

8 dates

3 tbs almond butter

1tsp agave

For the magic shell

1 tbs coconut oil

1 tbs cocoa powder

1 tsp agave

Toppings

Cacao nibs

Nakd salted caramel nibbles ( Dischem stock these )

Method:

  • For the ice cream: Mix the ingredients together and add a bottom layer in each 4 tumblers.
  • For the caramel: Ensure your dates have soaked in hot water for 10 minutes before removing them and blending together with almond butter and gave. Use some of the hot water to loosen it up.
  • For the chocolate magic shell, melt the coconut oil and then mix in other ingredients.
  • Then start layering. On top of your ice-cream add some caramel, chocolate shell and sprinkle over salted caramel nibbles. Keep going until you have run out of ingredients.
  • Top the dessert cup off with chocolate shell and a handful of cacao nibs.

Be sure to set these in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before devouring them. It may seem like allot of ingredients but its super quick and simple and you won’t regret making these.

Healthy Valentines day treats

Healthy Valentines day treats

The best part of Valentine’s day is all the yummy chocolates you get. It’s a great excuse to indulge a little. However, for those of you that don’t want to go too far I’ve got the perfect ‘good for you’ snack.

These are chocolates which have a seriously yummy peanut butter layer.Not only is this vegan but it’s also full of healthy fatty acids. If you prefer a healthier sweetener, then go for maple syrup or honey.

Ingredients:

Chocolate layer

½ mug coconut oil

3tbs agave

3tbs cocoa

Peanut butter layer

¼ cup unsweetened peanut butter

1 ½tbs coconut oil

½tbs agave

Method:

  • Mix both layers into separate bowls until well combined. You might need to melt the coconut oil if solid.
  • Once your mixtures are ready, spoon the chocolate into each mould (I used about 1 shallow household tbs per mould) Put into the freezer for 2 min then spoon in the peanut butter mixture.
  • Freeze for 5-10 min then use reminder of chocolate to cover up. Freeze for another 10 minutes.
  • The above makes about 8 hearts, once frozen empty chocolates into a container and store in the freezer for whenever you are ready.

Try use silicone moulds as they are super easy to get out.

Homemade cookies

These are the perfect treat for all your friends and family and don’t take up too much of your time. I made a batch of ginger cookies as well as my sugar cookies .

Ginger cookies

Ingredients:

350g self-rising flour

1 tbs ground ginger

1 tsp cinnamon

Pinch of salt

175g musgovado sugar

125g butter

1 egg

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees celsius.
  • Sift together dry ingredients and put aside. Beat butter and sugar until light in colour. Add the egg and mix.
  • Gradually add flour until dough pulls away from bowel then refrigerate 2 half’s in wax paper for 30 min.
  • Roll out dough on floured surface and cut out desired shapes. Bake for 12 min.
  • Once cool, prepare your icing and decorate!

I buy the pre-packaged icing sugar for cookies from Woolies. All you need to do is add water and your desired colours. It includes dried egg whites which is hard to find on its own. This helps the icing set hard and prevents smudging. For both batches of my normal sugar cookies and the ginger cookies, I only used half the icing sugar bag.

Once everything is dried, fill up brown paper bags with cookies and finish them off with a bright red ribbon.

This is such a simple and delicious gift that you cannot go wrong with.
