Next:

Frozen Coconut Cream Pie

Banana Whoopie with PB Cream

Banana-Nut Muffins

(not necessarily in that order)

Good thing come to those who wait bake

I think that is my new motto.

I finally got to posting about it.. Vegan Cheesecake.

I was never a huge fan of cheesecake before becoming vegan.. Especially since I was able to have it so much (I lived close to a Cheesecake Factory in Georgia)

But when you become vegan, you start craving all of these foods that you were never even a fan of..

Well, good news! This vegan version is even better than the regular!

And you don’t need a springform pan.. Just a pie pan

I actually really enjoyed making this.. you should give it a try! Plus, it has to cool in the fridge which goes well with these hot temperatures (please don’t do what I do and take a bite right after it’s done baking.. the warm filling WILL burn your mouth.)

You need

Crust

6 tbs Earth Balance or Earth Balance Sticks

1 1/2 cups Grounded Graham Crackers (Nabisco makes honey-free ones)

1/4 cup Sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. In a bowl, mix the graham crackers with the sugar

3. Melt the butter either on the stove or in the microwave (I used a saucepan for this)

4. Add the butter to the graham crackers and sugar

5. Press into the BOTTOM of a pie pan (DO NOT press it up the sides! think of a cheesecake.. only the bottom has a crust)

6. Bake for about 10 min & set aside (keep the oven on)

Filling

2 cups Tofutti Cream Cheese (softened)

2 cups Tofutti Sour Cream

1 cup Sugar

1 1/2 tbs Egg replace mixed with 1/2 cup Water

1 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 tsp Orange Zest

1/2 tsp Lemon Zest

1/2 cup Flour

Optional: Lemons Juice (I added the juice from 1/2 of a lemon)

1.Preheat oven to 350 if you turned it off

2. In a mixer or with a hand mixer, cream the cream cheese until smooth then add the sour cream. Go over the bottom of the bowl to make sure no cream cheese is unmixed 

3. Add the sugar and beat for about 3min

4. In a separate bowl, combine the egg replacer with the water (if you haven’t done so) then add the vanilla, orange zest, and lemon zest. Once it becomes a consistent mixture, add it to the sour/cream cheese

5. Add the flour

6. Pour onto the pie crust all the way to the top

7. Fill either a larger baking dish or an aluminum pan/tray with enough warm water so that it almost reaches the top of the pie pan

8. Bake for about 1 hour and 15min until the edges are a little bit brown and the edges are starting to firm (it will firm up once it cools)

9. Once it is done, let the cheesecake cool then place in the fridge for 8hours

10. You can figure out this step by yourself ;)

Recipe from Sticky Finger’s Sweets

I thought that since it is summer, I will have more time to make my own recipes and post them.

turns out.. I was wrong.

So sorry :(

I have 2 recipes to post.. 1. Frozen Cream Pie Bites  and 2. “Cheese”cake!

I’ll post it really soon..

I promise!

Have you are all having a great summer! :)

Once upon a time when I told someone I was vegan..

The person asked whether I was allowed to have eggs or bacon.

I said “no

Wow. you must have the WORST breakfasts!" they said.

And I ABSOLUTELY agree.

There is nothing worse for my waistline than pancakes.

And they are not just any pancakes, they areVegan Carob Chip Pancakes.

But the tastes makes up for the lack of.. wholesomeness and nutrients that you would get from, lets say, a fruit bowl.

But I personally picked a calories abundant breakfast. Just my choice.*

You need:

1 cup Flour

1 tbs Baking Powder

1/4 tsp Cinnamon

1/4 tsp Nutmeg (optional)

3/4 tsp Salt

3.5 tbs Agave

3/4 cup Almond Milk

Carob Chips

1. In one bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients (except carob chips). In a separate bowl, mix the agave and milk

2. Add the wet mixture to the dry and mix (don’t worry about lumps)

3. Heat a skillet/pan with cooking spray or oil (I used coconut cooking spray)

4. I made 3 pancakes but you can make more or less. Once you pour some of the batter, sprinkle some carbon chips on the batter and gently with a spoon push them into the batter so that they are not showing (otherwise, when you flip the pancakes the carob chops will burn)

5. Check the bottom and when it has browned, flip it. Try not to burn them! (I accidentally burnt one a little.. but it was still tasty)

6. Serve with maple syrup and enjoy!

* These are actually very filling.. and I have a very large appetite but I felt as if I was force feeding myself after the first.. I barely got through half of the second.

Soft Serve Fruit Company
Me (LEFT): Banana Soft Serve with Graham Cracker topping
*Emily (RIGHT) Half Blueberry half Dark Chocolate Soft Serve with Pomegranate, Puffins, Chocolate Chip Cookies (non-vegan :’[ ) and Honey
I love this place. I actually picked up a job application form but commuting to the city everyday might be a little difficult..
Hopefully the Organic Avenue that is opening 10min from my house needs workers (fingers crossed)
Anyways, SSFC is a vegan soft serve with a billion healthy toppings (some are not vegan but they are marked so!)
The banana comes in at about 85cal a serving. That’s pretty good especially for the great taste..

I don’t even remember the last time I turned on my oven..

Kidding.

Of course I do.

But there is nothing better than ice cream in this hot weather.

and while it is fun making healthy sorbet and diet friendly foods,

I do think it’s true that fat = flavor.

Anyways, the peanut butter is pretty low calorie if you can find this brand

So I guess that counts for something..

You need:

1 can Full Fat Coconut Milk

1 1/2 cup Almond Milk

3/4 cup + 2TBS (divided) Maple Syrup

3 tbs Canola Oil

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1/8 tsp Salt

3/4 tsp Guar Gum

4 TBS ”PB2” (mixed with 2 TBS water)

1. Make your peanut butter by combining the powder with the water

2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl with a mixer (I like to add the PB last)

3. Refrigerate for about 2 hours

4. Run through your ice cream machine according to directions

5. Overindulge.

I got the ice cream base from Chef Chloe’s website (but used maple instead of agave)

So I haven’t been posting much lately.. I know..
But school is officially out!
So more time for baking/cooking now..
I made Peanut Butter Ice Cream.. I will be posting that later (aka when I wake up or at least not at 5:40am)

Anonymous asked: did you lose weight since being vegan? and why did you become vegan?

Yea, I did lose a lot of weight from it and I don’t really eat “diet” foods as you can see. And I was vegetarian for a while because I believed it was a healthier lifestyle but I never really felt good or as good as I thought I would.. Eventually I became lactose intolerant and I never really liked eggs.. So I just decided to become vegan and I must say, it is the best decision that I have ever made

Watermelon Juice

I really need to buy a juicer.

This was very tedious and hard

However, it was worth it.
