Today I wanted to share the perfect healthy vegan pudding recipe. Its a healthy dessert essential as it tastes so sweet, without the added sugar, plus its perfect for busy mums' with kids or students. This super healthy recipe is so easy to make with just three ingredients, you can pop these in the freezer in minutes and have them ready for whenever that hunger strike hits!


How Long Should You Freeze Your Banana Pops for?

You should freeze your bananas for an hour, before eating them.
They will last in the freezer for a week.


What Makes these banana pops healthy?

Dark chocolate is used. Studies have shown that dark chocolate is a micronutrient power house. Packed full of flavornoids, anti-oxidents and polyphenols perfect for improving brain health and fighting disease.
They contain naturally occurring sugar from fruit to add sweetness-rather than full of processed sugar which without the fruit fiber to help slow its digestion can cause sluggishness and blood sugar spikes.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour freezing
Yield: 8

Frozen Banana Pops Ingredients:
- 4 ripe bananas, halved
- 200g Dark Chocolate
- 1 packet dried mango or pineapple

Method:

  1. Place your dark chocolate (preferably 75% or more) in a bowl & microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave again for 20 seconds. Continue until the chocolate is completely melted.
  2. Chop 4 Bananas in half.
  3. Coat the Bananas in the dark chocolate spooning it over and ensuring they are completely covered.(Dont place the banana in the chocolate-this can cause the chocolate to set).
  4. Add the dried fruit on top of the chocolate coated banana, and place in a container to set in the freezer.
  5. Remove and let defrost for a couple of minutes before eating!

Shop This Post 




These chocolate coconut bars are the ultimate vegan indulgence. With no baking involved they are really simple to make, and taste amazing. What really makes these coconut bars stand out is their Soft fondant center, with a melt in the mouth chocolate coating. 

If you are a fan of chocolate like me, then you could also try Sophie (Glow Steady's) Vegan Chocolate Popcorn Bars or My Nourishing Chocolate Orange Loaf Cake .

The Recipe:

  • 75g Coconut Cream
  • 2 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • Powdered Sugar (for a sweeter option)
  • 1/4 tsp Cornflour (for a refined sugar free option) 
  • 2 tbsp Unsweetend Cocoa-powder 
  • 50 ml Coconut oil (melted) 

Method:

In a bowl place your coconut cream.
Add 200ml Boiled water to a saucepan and simmer.
Place your bowl with the coconut cream, above the water to melt it, constantly stiring the cream until fully melted.
To your mix add the powdered sugar and maple syrup and whist until combined and thick.
(If you are using cornflour add a tbsp of water to it to form a paste and then add this to your coconut cream to help it to set.) 
Place in the fridge to set for 1 hr.
Remove from the fridge, and take tea spoon amounts of mixture rolling between your palms into balls. 

To make the chocolate coating:

 Melt the coconut oil in a bowl either by the method mentioned above or by placing in a microwave until melted for 20 second intervals. 
Stir the melted oil into your cocoa powder and add a tbsp of maple syrup to sweeten if you like. 
Pour chocolate mix over the balls of coconut until completely covered, and place in fridge to set for 30 minutes! 

Take out and Enjoy!

Salted Caramel Cupcakes (VG, Refined Sugar Free, Natural)

Healthy & Nourishing Salted Caramel Cupcakes

Vegan, Gluten Free, Refined Sugar Free
Quick & Simple

Makes 6 (Prep 10 minutes, Bake 15 minutes)





Shop This Post:

All this week I am sharing my ultimate healthy caramel recipes with you. I love sharing healthy alternatives to traditional 'junk food,' like Jules Arons Ultimate Banana Bread & my Baked Vegan Doughnuts.

Since going dairy free, I have really missed my caramel. Its so creamy and sweet, and there really is nothing like an indulgent caramel treat now and again. 

But Emily, you write a health food blog? How can I have caramel and cake when I'm trying to eat healthily?
Have no fear, you can eat healthily and still enjoy an indulgent cake; the best bit being it tastes incredible and you dont have to feel guilty at all, because everything in them is nourishing your body and doing you the world of good.

What swaps have you made to make these healthy?


Swap 1: Tahini rather than Butter. Tahini gives these cakes and incredible, subtle nutty flavour. Its dairy free, gluten free, and natural filled with vitamin E and vitamins B1, B2, B3, B5 and B15. as well as being an amazing source of calcium so if you are dairy free like me its an essential!

Swap 2: Oat Flour. This one is for all my gluten free people out there. Gluten isn't digestible and even if you aren't celiac it can cause digestive issues. To avoid any problems oat flour is used.

Swap 3: Using aquafaba rather than eggs. This is an ethical swap and one you dont have to make although its great if you are trying to loose weight as aquafaba is really low in calories. Its perfect for binding your cakes and helping them to rise. 


So now we know the health benefits lets get into the recipe! 

Ingredients:


  • 1/4 cup Tahini
  • 100g Aquafaba
  • 150g Oat Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Agave Nectar 
  • 150 g dates
  • 50g cashew butter
  • 6 tbsp almond milk
  • 150g Coconut cream 

Method:

  1. Pre heat oven to 180 degree centigrade.
  2. Add your flour, & baking soda to a bowl.
  3. Whisk the aquafaba until doubled in size and frothy.
  4. Add your tahini, agave, vanilla and whisked aquafaba, to your dry ingredients and fold in.
  5. Spoon into 6 muffin cases and bake for 15 minutes.
  6. Whilst baking add your dates, cashew butter and milk to a blender. 
  7. Blend until smooth (if your blender is less power full, blend and then use a liquidizer to get a creamy consistency).
  8. Remove cakes from the oven.
  9. Whisk up your coconut cream whilst the cakes cool.
  10. Using a piping end make holes into the cake to halfway down.
  11. Pipe in the caramel mix.
  12. Once all cakes are filled, pipe over the coconut cream, into swirls.
  13. Top with your favorite cake topping! I used cherries, ginger, cinnamon, and date love hearts!

Simple Chocolate Popcorn Bars (VG, GF, Refined Sugar Free)

Simple Vegan Gluten Free Popcorn Bars by Glow Steady 

Quick, Simple, Healthy 
Healthy, vegan, rocky road, gluten free, refined sugar free, recipe, chocolate, dates, almonds, popcorn

If you have found yourself on this page, then you are probably a sweet lover like me, and looking for a super healthy and delicious recipe which you can quickly make at home, and you have definitely come to the right place.

Today's post is a Healthy, Vegan, and Gluten Free recipe from the blog Glow Steady, written by the lovely Sophie! Both being plant based foodies, we decided to put each others recipes to the test, and as you will see we both opted for chocolate based recipes (we aren't chocoholics or anything!). If you want to find out how sophie got on with my healthy chocolate orange digestives click here .

These Chocolate Popcorn Bars are delicious, simple to make, plus super healthy and natural; no nasties here! They are well worth a try and I am so excited to share Sophie's incredible recipe with you all.

Healthy, vegan, rocky road, gluten free, refined sugar free, recipe, chocolate, dates, almonds, popcorn


What You Will Need:

  • Half a cup popcorn kernels
  • 1tsp sunflower oil
  • 100g pitted dates
  • 75g whole raw almonds
  • 100g dark chocolate
  • 1 tsp maca powder (optional)
To make this recipe even easier, or if you are worried about burning your popcorn, you can always buy pre-popped popcorn from the shops. I did this using half of a sharing popcorn pack; it worked perfectly!


Method:



  1. Line a baking dish with grease proof paper.
  2. First, we’re going to pop the popcorn so heat the oil in a small saucepan on a medium heat. Then add the popcorn and leave the lid on. You should hear it starting to pop after about a minute. It will take about 5 minutes in total. Shake the pan frequently to ensure it isn’t burning. Leave aside for 30 seconds to a minute after removing from heat before removing the lid. After removing the lid, stir in the maca powder if using.
  3. While you’re waiting for the popcorn to pop, put the dates and almonds in a food processor and pulse for 30-45 seconds until crumbly.
  4. In a large mixing bowl combine the date and almond mixture with the popcorn.
  5. Now it’s time to melt the chocolate. Place chocolate in a large bowl over a pan of boiling water. Make sure the bowl and water aren’t touching then wait for chocolate to melt.
  6. Once chocolate is melted, pour the chocolate over the other ingredients in the mixing bowl. Make sure the popcorn is fully coated.
  7. Now press the mixture into the baking dish, try to spread it as evenly as possible.
  8. Place dish in fridge and allow to set for two hours before serving

My Thoughts:

This is the easiest recipe to whip up ever. You just need a food processor to blend the dates and almonds and you are away. I think they are the perfect healthy alternative to a rocky road, with the same chewy but crunchy textures created by the dates and the popcorn. I'm a huge fan of anything chocolatey and these definitely hit the spot! The only problem is they are way too more-ish!
Let me know if you try making these!
