Heavenly Chocolate and Peanut Butter Pudding is the Perfect Dessert! Of Course, It’s Vegan and Gluten-Free!
If you’re a fan of pudding — and who isn’t, really? — you’ll adore this rich and creamy dessert. Who doesn’t love the combination of peanut butter and chocolate?
These vegan, gluten-free Easter desserts are sure to be a crowd-pleaser whether you are making them for Easter, to celebrate spring, or for something else entirely.
These vegan, gluten-free dessert balls are so delicious that you’ll want to eat them up immediately. Do it, because they are so easy to make that you can quickly and easily make more! We have to confess that when we developed these our first thought was “Unhh”. (Our second thought was of that classic SNL skit, with Alec Baldwin’s Pete Schweddy and his delicious Schweddy Balls.) They aren’t very pretty (although there are ways to make them prettier), and they don’t have many ingredients, and they are incredibly easy to make, so yeah, we were dubious. Until we bit into one (ok, we put the whole thing in our mouth). Whoaaaa! We immediately dubbed these “Amazeballs”.
Thanksgiving is barely behind us, and we’re already thinking about all the cookies we’re going to eat in December. Really, is it even the holiday season without cookies? It’s the time of year when you’re most tempted to stray from a vegan, gluten-free diet, because most of the offered desserts are packed with dairy and wheat. Still, there is no reason why you should miss out on the fun, just because you’re trying hard to be healthy. These cookies aren’t exactly a diet food, but they are vegan, gluten-free, and delicious!
There’s no dessert quite like cheesecake. Smooth, creamy, sweet, decadent — what’s not to love? However, most of the cheesecakes you encounter in restaurants and coffee shops are made with tons of dairy and gluten. Since we love this delectable confection so much, we decided to make our own, using plant-based ingredients. The filling utilizes cashews and coconut milk, blended to perfection. Stunned by our stellar results, we decided to share the secret with you. You can thank us later.
Your Instant Pot can be used for more than just pressure cooking! It’s a handy way to create one-pot recipes where heat is needed! This decadent Instant Pot gluten-free vegan chocolate coconut dessert is not only delicious for a post-dinner snack, but it’s also chock full of yummy healthy fats for a satisfying treat during the day. This dessert is a mix of sweet creamy coconut milk and chewy flaked coconut, and is reminiscent of the chocolate coconut candy bars. Top the final result with more shredded coconut, chocolate chips, or slivered almonds for an extra crunch.
If you are hankering for something sweet, vegan, and gluten-free, you really can’t go wrong with this vegan (and yes, gluten-free) dessert pizza. It tastes so much like the Almond Joy bars of our youth, only so much better, and better for you!
It already feels like autumn where we live, and we’re craving warmer, heartier foods. Of course, sweet desserts are delicious any time of the year. We recently modified a traditional rhubarb/pear/almond crumble recipe by substituting Earth Balance for butter, and gluten-free flour for the whole wheat kind. Our results were stellar. You’ll keep going back to the pan for this dessert — again, and again and again. Try your hardest not to devour the entire thing!
This mouthwatering creamy Instant Pot gluten-free vegan rice pudding is smooth and sweet with only a handful of ingredients! Feel free to use almond, hemp, or dairy-free milk of choice. The nuttier milks add a subtle additional flavor, and coconut milk isn’t recommended as it is too thick for the final dish. Cinnamon powder is optional, but highly recommended! Depending on the toppings you select, the vanilla alone is a great base. Make this rice pudding more traditional with regular or golden raisins soaked in rum, or opt for a handful of other toppings that provide more crunch.
Is it even summer without peach cobbler? We don’t think so! When temperatures are hot and peaches are ripe, what’s an enterprising chef to do? The traditional recipe calls for large amounts of butter and white sugar, but you won’t miss the rich taste when you bite into our more subtle, but equally delicious version. This cobbler is inexpensive and incredibly easy to make. You can either peel the peaches or leave the peels on. We made our recipe with peels because that’s the way we roll. The peels become soft and pliable during the baking process. Also, they’re packed with vitamins, so it seems a shame to just toss them out. You’re going to love this recipe. We guarantee it!
Many of us have fond summer memories of sitting outside in the warm sun, digging into generous helpings of pineapple upside-down cake. Of course, the traditional recipe utilizes eggs and milk, but these ingredients aren’t necessary for our delicious version. Our recipe uses fresh pineapple instead of canned. Colorful pomegranate seeds replace the usual Maraschino cherries.
Sometimes, you want to whip up a delicious, filling vegan meal without a lot of fuss and expense. Maybe you have less than an hour to prepare a dish that your whole family — or table of friends — will love. Never fear! This stellar red bean-based dish utilizes cauliflower “rice.” In other words, the finely shredded cauliflower looks like rice, and its texture is quite similar. You and your guests will be amazed! The whole process is much easier than you might think.
This winter has been an especially long one, and we find ourselves longing for sweet treats that won’t make us feel too guilty. Nothing is more satisfying on a cold winter’s day than a piping hot bowl of apple crisp. If you’re following a vegan, gluten-free diet, you might wonder how you can enjoy this succulent treat without butter and dairy-based ice cream. Have no fear, the dessert can be made to your specific dietary needs. We think it tastes even better than the milk-infused version.
If you find you’re in a pinch for a quick dessert, or have a large dinner on which to focus, this delicious recipe will make it look like you spent hours on it. Part of the reason it is so simple is because the base, the vegan and gluten-free chocolate cake, is pre-made by Amy’s Organics and available at Whole Foods and the frozen section of most grocery stores. It is delicious, and doesn’t even need to be baked!
Summer is definitely here and most of us are contending with record-breaking temperatures. That is why we were elated to get this month’s copy of Veg News and find it full of vegan ice cream recipes. The best part? You don’t even need an ice cream maker.
For the week in desserts we needed a break from all the pure sugar! Is it too much to ask for a delicious dessert that also offers nutritional value? With this recipe, we learn that it is not! With nutrient-rich ingredients such as vitamin-packed avocado, anti-oxidant packed cacao and vitamin and mineral-packed coconut milk, this delicious mousse does not disappoint.
