Sweet Treats

Still waiting to get the pics from my happy hour so I can show you guys the yummy eats we made for it, but I did want to share the sweet treats that I made myself today!

Homemade applesauce and homemade vegan blueberry softserve!

The applesauce was super easy and totally inspired by my friend Tania. We went to middle school together and recently reconnected now that we’re back in the same area again! She just started a new blog you should definitely check out! It’s really just steamed apples, blended. I did add a squeeze of honey and a pinch of flaxseed, but nothing else! Although I’m sure it would be extra delicious with some cinnamon somethin’. I really need to put ground cinnamon on my grocery list…

For the blueberry softserve, I saw on Oh She Glows (amaaaazing blog) all kinds of various vegan/raw softserve ice “cream” that she layers into her overnight oats. I figured I’d give it a whirl (literally! You make it in the blender.) It’s really more of a blueberry-banana softserve, because that is literally all that’s in it: frozen bananas, frozen blueberries, and a splash of vanilla almond milk.

You just toss the ingredients into a food processor (or, in my case, a blender. I reeeeeally need to get a food processor. It would probably be much easier than having to shovel the banana chunks down every 5 seconds to get the goods moving!) and whirl away. Before you know it, you are looking at a beautiful creamy mess of fruity goodness that has the exact texture and look of frozen yogurt or softserve ice cream!! I love it!

Anyway, that’s all I have for you right now. Weigh-in tomorrow AHHHHH!

  1. those both look yummy!! i like homemade apple sauce and cinnamon really does add that extra something to it!

  2. Ace! You tried my apple sauce 🙂 It’s looking super beautiful and smooth, did you peel your apples? Honey’ is a great idea, I must try it.. I want to perfect the applesauce so that I can try applesauce swirl ice cream (yum!)

    Don’t you just love those frozen fruit soft-serves? They are too good. Also food if you want a sweet treat are So-Delicious Vegan Ice Crram Sandwiches (made with coconut milk). They sell them at whole foods, they are agave sweetened and not too high in calorie count AND coconut is very good for you …mmmmmm!
