Healthy Dessert Ideas:
  • I love to marinate tofu! Made a pie w/ possibly 3 min. of prep time, then an hour to chill. In a blender add 1 package silken tofu, half cup peanut butter, 3-4 tbls. cocoa powder--vanilla extract & brown sugar to taste, then blend-add to pie crust & chill. Best peanut butter pie & gets even better the next day♥ (RosElisabeth)
  • Chocolate "whipped cream"! It's a basic cashew cream with cocoa powder and a bit of avo blended in for smoothness (GoGlowy)
  • I made this vegan chocolate mousse that was absolutely amazing. Even my mom and brother loved it. All it was was melted organic chocolate chips and organic silken tofu blended together then chilled in dessert cups. amazing :) It was more of a creamy pudding than a mousse, but it was rich and decadent...and full of protein. :D (DragonBunn)
  • I make someting I call sweet (no)tato pie. As the name suggests, it's like sweet potato pie, but w/o (obviously) the sweet potatoes. I'm a guy w/ li'l patience, so waiting 4 the potatoes 2 soften seemed like an eternity, then one day a lightbulb went off, & x amount of time later; sweet notato pie was born. (pmknight12)
