Salted caramel ice cream (vegan)

Salted caramel ice cream - an easy 6-ingredient vegan ice cream that can be made wihout an ice cream machine!

Inspired by the amazing vegan caramel on Blissful Basil, I made this incredibly rich-tasting vegan ice cream. A little goes a long way with this recipe! Only six ingredients (with sea salt being the bonus seventh – that doesn’t have to be included in ingredient counts), easy to make and no ice cream machine needed. Sounds like a dream to me :)

Vitamin bomb jelly

Vitamin bomb jelly - you need only five ingredients for this delicious and healthy treat!

A beloved child has many names. It’s a proverb used in Estonia (and apparently also Finland and Sweden) and it fits perfectly for the awesome berries I want to introduce to you. Sea-buckthorn is an awesome shrub that also goes by the names of sandthorn, sallowthorn or seaberry, as Wikipedia enlightened me. Sea-buckthorn berries are proper vitamin powerhouses, having an insane amount of vitamin C and some more good stuff, and the seeds are full of healthy oils. So what else would be better for a gloomy winter / early spring day than a dose of healthy vitamin bomb jelly with these orange little wonders?

Orange-marzipan chocolate chip biscuits (vegan, gluten-free)

Orange-marzipan chocolate chip biscuits (vegan, gluten-free)

One thing that is definitely tricky to achieve on a vegan gluten-free diet is a good slightly crispy biscuit. I don’t crave normal biscuits anymore, but I do get cravings for that texture. You know the kind – soft and slightly chewy on the inside, but with a nice crispy crust on the outside. Fortunately, now I can enjoy exactly that and you can as well! These orange-marzipan chocolate chip biscuits (wow, that name is a mouthful!) don’t even feel like they are gluten-free and vegan, they could easily compete with normal cookies.

Raw coffee cupcakes (vegan, gluten-free)

Raw coffee cupcakes (vegan, gluten-free)

Coffee is one of the forbidden foods for me. Or well, forbidden drinks. Despite that, I really-really like the taste. I may not be able to handle coffee on its own, but it doesn’t do much bad to me when mixed with other foods. So I came up with these lovely raw cupcakes with coffee and chocolate cream – everything else in these is healthy, so the tablespoon of coffee extract is really just for flavour and almost doesn’t count.

Redcurrant ice cream with a surprise (vegan)

Redcurrant ice cream with a surprise

I have been absent for a few days, but I’m back now with a delicious new ice cream! This one is for those who prefer slightly different flavours – the tart redcurrants mixed with dark chocolate are great on their own, but I made it more special with some… would you guess it? Pink pepper! They go together surprisingly well, adding spice to this otherwise normal vegan ice cream.
