Go to vegan treats

Happy August, everyone! Why does summer have to go by so quickly?! If only winter did the same it wouldn’t be so bad…sigh. So I’m here today to share more food porn with you. My last post on Easy Vegan Meals sparked some of your interests, so I thought I’d do another one but with yummy treats instead. While there are many different types of vegans out there, I’ve got to admit that I’m not the type who eats 100% healthy and clean 24/7 (that just ain’t happening).

It’s been a bit of a journey, but to find delicious and easy to make alternatives to my once favourite treats before I changed my diet has been a wonderful breakthrough. I love knowing I can still have it all! These are 5 of my favourites that pretty much go on repeat throughout the weeks.

N(ice) cream.
The perfect treat for those with a sweet tooth! I love to prepare this super easy and tasty non-dairy ice cream. Blended frozen bananas, almond milk, and a dash of vanilla extract – topped with blueberries and more bananas.

Mid-day papaya snack.
This is another easy to prepare healthy snack. Best served with lime drizzled on top for some extra kick.

Infused iced tea.
It’s been a hot summer here so making refreshing drinks is a must and has helped a lot to cool down! Chilled Japanese green tea infused with mint, lemon, lime, and strawberries.

Hearty pancakes.
My personal favourite breakfast to prepare on a Sunday morning – oatmeal banana pancakes! Blended oats, banana, almond milk, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and cinnamon for extra delicious flavour. Topped with blueberries, strawberries, and Canadian maple syrup. Recipe is from fablunch.com.

Chocolate chip cookies.
And people think vegans have to give up a lot on this lifestyle, but looky what we have here. Every ingredient is vegan including the chocolate chips! I swear I crave these in my sleep. Full recipe is on dailyrebecca.com.

Vegan or not, what are your food guilty pleasures?

    All of these look really good! I’m struggling to find vegan treats because I don’t like bananas and I’m generally a bit fussy when it comes to food haha – I might try the cookies recipe, though, they look too good. I love vegan ice cream & soy hot chocolate xx

      There’s tons of vegan food without banana so I’m sure you’ll be able to find something you will love without it! However you must try the cookies…I’m addicted to baking them :]

    • Stacey says:

      It literally taste just like ice cream with dairy πŸ™‚ you won’t even notice the difference. And yes, I don’t even want to think about summer leaving…it’s such a sad time!

    Ooh those cookies look delicious! I tried making pancakes with bananas, but I wasn’t a fan, the flavour of banana was too overpowering!

    Oh my, everything looks delicious, even those pancakes and I’m not even a big pancake lover. I am a vegetarian so these sounds amazing. I am gonna try the N(ice) cream and the cookies. I think my girls will love those.
    Regarding summer, I’m asking myself why summer goes by so quickly as well. Can’t believe it’s almost over…noooooooooooooooo!!! Okay, sorry, I’m being dramatic now.

      Lol I know what you mean! I just want summer to stay…I’m so not ready for winter, especially since we always have such long ass ones!
      I have a tip: if you make the cookies, sandwich the nice cream between 2 cookies and you just created heaven <3

  16. The cookies and the pancakes appeal to me the most but at the same time, that n(ice) cream on a summers day sounds amazing! I feel like you could make so many variations of it as well.
