Who doesn’t love five-minute treats?! Not only are they super fast to make, but they’re also deliciously VEGAN. Yeaaaaaa, be excited.
Also, super stoked to share I have the awesome honor of presenting these babies tomorrow at Central Florida Veg Fest! A special thanks to Bulk Nation Foods for sponsoring me!
Don’t fret it you’re not local to see my demo live though, you can totally nail these on your own.
serving: 1 cup
– 20 organic pitted dates
– 1/2 + 1/3 cup almond milk
– 1/4 cup maple/agave syrup blend
(I purchase the blend at Trader Joes but you can use one or the other if you only have that on hand – i.e. 1/4 cup of full maple syrup or 1/4 cup agave)
– 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
– 1 tbsp coconut oil
– a pinch of pink Himalayan salt
Add all ingredients into a food processor and blend on high for 3 minutes or until creamy. Seriously, that’s it! Use for caramel chocolate bites, apple dipping and tons of other fun ways!
Banana ice cream
serving: 3 bowls
– 5 organic bananas (frozen over night)
– 1 cup almond milk
– 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter
Combine all ingredients in a vita mix or high-powered blender. Blend until creamy and consistency resembles ice cream. Top with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
Chocolate chip cookie dough
serving: 3 cups
– 1 cup earth balance vegan butter
– 1/2 cup brown sugar
– 1/2 cup cane sugar
– 1 tsp vanilla extract
– 1/2 cup almond milk
– 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
– 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan salt
– non dairy chocolate chips
**optional ( 1 tsp of baking powder and baking soda if you actually want to bake it)
In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars. With a fork, mash until it is smooth and creamy. Next add is vanilla extract, milk and salt. Once combined well, add in flour and mix well until a dough forms.
Pour in desired amount of chocolate chips and it’s ready to eat right from the bowl! I love using chunks of this in my banana ice cream or just eating it straight up.
** If you plan to use the dough for baking, mix in baking soda and powder into the flour before combining it with the other ingredients. Makes about 18-20 cookies depending on how you size them. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
There you have it! 3 of my favorite 5 minute recipes that are super yummy and crazy easy to make!
Hope you enjoy and shoot me a comment if you decide to give these a try 😊
Til next time,
