After a couple of crazy busy, highly stressful work weeks, I’m back to semi-normal here on the blog. I’m so sorry for my absence and to show just how sorry I am, I’m sharing the recipe for these vegan & gluten-free mango dragon fruit ice cream bars. Don’t worry, the ice cream is no-churn, with a simple base of frozen fruit. You’re going to love them so much that hopefully you forgive me for being so MIA lately! At the very least, they’ll put a smile on your face.
I’ve got a serious obsession with eating raw cookie dough. It started way back when I was a kid, sneaking bites of Pillsbury ready-to-bake chocolate chip cookie dough behind my mom’s back. We all know that’s seriously not good for you, so I put together these vegan chocolate chip cookie dough bites. They’re filled with all-natural ingredients like cashew butter, rolled oats, and dates so you can eat them raw without a worry!
I’m a sushi addict. Seriously, self-admittedly I eat sushi almost every day. When I moved to Hong Kong a year ago, I initially found it hard to find vegan restaurants that accommodated my requests for oil-free, non-fried foods. There are only a couple of strictly vegan restaurants as well as a handful of vegan-friendly ones which offer fast-food type Chinese food, burgers, or salads loaded with high-fat dressing. I find most of it too greasy for my stomach, which prefers more low-fat plant-based food. The one exception is sushi, which is incredibly vegan-friendly, oil-free and can be found all over the city. To curb this rather pricey habit, I’ve made this plant-based deconstructed sushi bowl which has been my go-to dinner lately.
