Summer is definitely the best time for fresh fruits & veggies! There’s nothing better than a big fresh, juicy watermelon cut up in the fridge to snack on all day, make smoothies out of, and freeze to make watermelon sorbet! Not only is watermelon delicious, it also has some great health benefits. In honor of National Watermelon Day (August 3rd), I’m sharing my Easy Watermelon Sorbet Recipe!
Homemade watermelon sorbet is so easy to make and only requires two ingredients. It makes a fantastic snack, dessert, or breakfast! No ice cream maker needed! Scroll down to get the recipe.
Get ready for one of the most delicious plant based dessert bars you’ll ever make! These amazing Sweet & Salty Healthy Dessert Bars will satisfy any craving! They are gluten free, sweetened with dates & maple syrup, and plant based.
Sometimes it can be hard to find healthy plant-based replacements for the things we used to love as kids. For me, its ice cream (you might’ve noticed I have a lot of nice cream recipes around here!)
One thing I used to love getting was a Wendy’s Frosty. And I’d stick those greasy salty french fries in it! Disgusting when I think about it now, but I absolutely loved it as a kid! I was pretty much a fan of any cheap soft serve style ice cream.
Anyway, when I recently figured out the trick to getting that same kind of consistency in a smoothie – I was gung-ho to figure out how to make my own dairy-free ‘frosty’! Want to know the secret? ICE CUBES!
Since you guys just loved my previous Chia Pudding Recipes, I thought I would include another one: this Strawberry Banana Nice Cream Breakfast Jar! The colors, presentation, and taste of this breakfast jar are all absolutely INCREDIBLE!
Now, I am a huge fan of making a big batch of Chia Seed Pudding at the beginning of the week for breakfasts. (It’s the perfect plant-based breakfast meal-prep food staple), so its always nice when you can come up with ways to customize your jars in the morning, so you aren’t stuck with eating the same flavor of chia pudding each day. This would also be perfect for a Saturday morning, if you have any left over! Or as a healthy dessert option during the week when you want something sweet.
What is “nice cream”?
Fantastic question. Nice cream is essentially, well, plant-based ‘ice cream’.
So, any kind of frozen, creamy dessert resembling ice cream that is non-dairy and plant-based, can be considered nice cream. The most common form of ‘nice cream’ is banana nice cream (SO GOOD)! You can also try out our Strawberry Banana Nice Cream!
If you’re like me, and dairy-free (I’m lactose intolerant – one thing that led me to vegan-ism), or just eating a plant-based diet, you might find that you really really miss creamy foods. Specifically, desserts! So when I found out you could make your own plant-based soft serve ice cream, I was ecstatic. Banana nice cream. Banana peanut butter nice cream. Banana berry nice cream. Banana pineapple nice cream… lots of possibilities. So when I heard about trying sweet potato banana nice cream – I had to see what that was like! And let me tell you – it is just as good as it sounds!
Moist. Light. Delicious. What more could you look for in a vegan quick bread? This vegan lemon poppy seed quick bread recipe is 100% vegan and so good, non-vegans will have no idea its dairy & egg free! It works well as a breakfast quick bread, or even as dessert. The only ‘weird’ ingredient in here is non-dairy yogurt (which is still very easy to find at most grocery stores – and even easier at Whole Foods!)
Baking and prep-time is pretty quick as well. Overall, you should be able to have it ready to go in about 1.5 hours (45min bake time included). Even less if you don’t use icing! Just add together dry ingredients in one bowl, wet in another, mix together and bake!
