AKA Smoothie of the Gods! It's a smoothie that tastes like a milkshake. And it's vegan!Read More
It's actually avocado-banana-greek-yogurt teff pancakes, but let's keep in simple. I adapted a recipe from here and was forced to substitute a bit due to a lack of bananas and soymilk. The result was something that seems like it shouldn't even be called a pancake, but rather some kind of extra-moist breakfasty patty.Read More
What to do with extra beets? Boil until soft, chill, and then keep on hand to dump into your next smoothie. This smoothie is EXTREMELY EARTHY, but as I found, this attribute makes it perfect for inclusion in sweet & salty meals as a base. After a very filling glass of this, I froze the rest in an ice tray and have been using the red velvet smoothie cubes in dishes such as the Saucy Chunks o Pork Butt recipe I just posted, but also just as ice cubes in juices and seltzers and added to oatmeal as well.Read More
The name may sound tediously good-for-you but don't be fooled! These have the texture of a moist cake and the added benefit of being gluten- and (mostly) sugar-free (not counting whatever sugar quotient is in the chocolate chips you use). Kind of a miracle.Read More
A vegan alternative to yogurt and granola! With banana, avocado, raw almonds soaked in water overnight, coconut oil, coconut flakes, hibiscus powder, honey/maple syrup, granola, raspberries, chocolate chips.
A friend was naming some bands at a recent jam band festival he attended, and this one sounded like it would make a fantastic ice cream flavor.
To make it, I used this trusty dark chocolate ice cream recipe and added hot pepper in the early stages and then chunks of banana and chocolate during the last 5 minutes it was churning in the gelato maker.
I had some bananas that were getting extra freckle-y and since I have a hard enough time eating my way through one perfect banana, I took these three delinquents that were just hanging out going nowhere and improvised on a Rice Pudding Recipe.
I had no rice but I did have some farro, and I didn’t have any whole milk but did have some coconut milk that was also getting delinquent. In my attempts to be VB6, I bought it but unfortunately it tastes like the lovechild of a coconut and a cardboard box.
The recipe also calls for brown sugar to be mixed with an egg. I figured since the bananas would be sweet, I could just drop in a couple tablespoons of raw honey. I was surprised to find that it was a little too sweet in the end, so you can totally do this recipe without any sort of sweetener, I think. Or maybe just a little.
Basically I followed the directions from the recipe above, with the aforementioned substitutions, and smooshed the three bananas up and threw them in with the coconut milk and farro to simmer for 25 min. Sprinkled some cinnamon on top and woot! Tasty and very true to what I expect of rice pudding. And ALMOST VEGAN!
Melt butter and sugar together in a pan, then add bananas, water and vanilla. Cook until sufficiently gooey.Read More
