Having friends from dinner? You no longer need to sacrifice your love for vegan food in order to please non-vegans. Who knew that the vegan friend would end up being the Queen or King of the Kitchen?
We All Scream for Ice Cream: New Ice Cream Trends.
Fascinate your friends with two scoops of this jet black indulgence that tastes delicious and is a blast to eat. Charcoal eating is becoming as popular as eating gold dust and other minerals that are found naturally in the environment. Eaten in moderate amounts and combined with foods, these minerals pose no issue to our health. All you need to do is add powdered charcoal (available at any epicurean store) to your regular vegan ice cream recipe. That is all! Now you can make your own delicious black ice cream and sprinkle with edible glitter to make a decadent and decorative dessert worthy of the royals. Try it today and get really creative.
The Best Part of the Pie: “Just Baked” Apples
If you are into apple pie but not into the calories of the crust, or the fat involved in making a pie, just aim toward the middle and eat nothing but the best part: the inside!
This amazing recipe calls for just 5 or 6 apples, preferably green, peeled and cubed. Use coconut oil as the cooking agent, Grand Marnier, slivered almonds, sugar, and cinnamon. If you want to add a really nice kick, add half a cup of Cointreau, or any orange liqueur.
Just preheat your oven to 350 degrees, and place the apple chunks on a baking dish moistened with the coconut oil. Drizzle a small amount of coconut oil (or spray it using a spritzer) over the apples until well-coated. Another option is to mix the liqueur, sugar, cinnamon, and coconut oil in a bag with the apple chunks. Then, toss the chunks on the baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.
Feel Like a Kid Again: Fruity Roll Ups
This is a take on jelly candy but much more fun to eat. All you need is real frozen fruits and some orange zest. Get a small bag of frozen raspberries and frozen peaches. Let the fruit thaw to release excess wetness.
Once the fruit is thawed and dry, puree them adding the orange zest until it the texture is smooth and soft. The way to make the leather-like chew is by spreading the pureed fruit evenly on a large baking tray using a silicon pad, or Silpat.
It takes about 5 hours for the fruit to dry at 175 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut into pieces and serve to you friends as their favorite rollup candies! Check out the official Food Network recipe.
Do You Sorbet? Creamy Raspberry (Or Cherry) Mango Sorbet
Peel, and cut the “meat” of very ripe mangoes until you can make at least 3 cups worth. Do the same with cherries, or if you prefer raspberries, then get 1 cup of the fresh and organic kind. For the ice-cream finish, use one cup of full-fat coconut or almond milk. Use 1 cup of organic sugar, a pinch of salt, and one teaspoon of lime juice.
Blend all the ingredients using a regular blender or a hand blender. Transfer the smooth mix to your frozen bowl of choice. Cover it up and leave it to freeze and chill overnight. What you will get is an unbelievably clean finish, a fresh taste, and a soft and smooth texture that is as delicious as ice cream and yet as light as sorbet.
Indulgently Humane: PETA’s Two-Ingredient Cookies
Get ready for a party of flavors. Get 2 very ripe medium-sized bananas and 1 cup of gluten-free rolled oats. Include ¼ cup of dark chocolate chips, nuts, sunflower seeds, cinnamon and other spices. The sky is the limit!
Mash the bananas until smooth, add the rolled oats, and incorporate fully. Add your other toppings and make the mix very even.
Now, all you have to do is preheat your oven at 350F and set a baking sheet with parchment paper to remove all moisture from the cookies. Just add spoonfuls of the batter on the baking sheet, and bake for 13-15 minutes. Let them cool (although you will not want to wait) and then serve them. Be careful, as you may not stop eating!
