Creamy Caramel Sauce

This is the healthiest caramel sauce you'll find that still tastes like a super yummy treat.  I love to eat it over my Banana Bundt Cake, or as a delicious fruit dip.  The best part is that it's super simple, so I won't overcomplicate it for you...


In a high speed blender, combine your plant milk, dates, vanilla, and soaked cashews (I add my cashews to boiling water for just a few minutes to soak them, nothing fancy or time consuming) until smooth.  Chill in the fridge to allow flavours to blend (this is my preference) or serve warm with fruit or drizzled over my Banana Bundt Cake.


Enjoy!

"Glory Sauce" (Modified)

BEST SAUCE EVER!!!

This sauce is not my original recipe, but I am a HUGE fan of Glory Sauce.  The only problem is, in its original form, it's an oil-based dressing (which most dressings are)...and I don't eat oil.  So...I "healthified" it, and honestly, I like it even better this way, which I didn't think was possible.  The original recipe is served at the Fresh Tracks Cafe, at the White Water Ski Resort in Nelson, BC, Canada, and can be found in their Whitewater Cooks cookbook, which is full of amazingly yummy recipes.  Anyways, I replaced the refined oil content of this recipe with some creamy, natural oils, and the results are pretty amazing!  It's the most versatile sauce ever, fantastic drizzled on pretty much everything.  I eat it over rice bowls, salads, Asian dishes, and I even drizzle it over baked potatoes.  So here it is...


First off, I use this Braggs' brand Natural Soy Sauce Alternative rather than actual soy sauce.  It's a great, health…

Sourdough Banana Bread

Mmmm...Banana Bread.  Who doesn't love it, am I right?!?  Even my child that absolutely hates bananas, LOVES banana bread.  And this is the kind of banana bread you really can feel good about eating because it's chuck full of healthiness!  Yay!!!!  Plus, if you have a sourdough starter and are into getting that yummy, tangy goodness into your gut, this is another recipe to add to your repertoire.  If you don't have a starter, there's modifications you can follow in my recipe tips.  This recipe is actually modified from my lovely friend Kelsey's Sourdough Banana Bread recipe.  She gave me permission to change a few things to make it conducive to my Whole Foods Plant Based lifestyle, so it is now completely free of refined sugar, oil and animal products.  So here goes...


My kids usually convince me to throw chocolate chips into the banana bread (I actually found some that are both dairy-free and sugar-free, but man are they expensive), but nuts or blueberries are al…

Chocolate Almond Truffles

If you're looking for a rich, creamy, decadent dessert, that is also quick, easy, and only has 5 ingredients (all of which you'll likely have on hand right now), please allow me to be your new best friend.  These truffles are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, and have a rich dark chocolate taste that you can indulge in guilt-free.  Although the title says they're almond flavoured, you really can make these truffles whatever flavour you'd like.  I've done peppermint, vanilla, orange...whatever suits your fancy / craving.  I've also rolled them in crushed nuts instead of coconut, but coconut remains my personal favourite.

So to begin, line a small bread board or baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Toast your coconut over medium heat until lightly browned and aromatic (around 5 mins), stirring frequently.


Transfer the coconut to a small plate to cool as you mix together your truffle ingredients.
Next, combine the cocoa powder, full fat coconut …
