3 Easy No-Bake Plant-Based Dessert Recipes That You Will Surely Enjoy
Ahhhhh sugar! How much you have been slammed in the wellness industry. I on the other hand stand firmly in nature and all its glory as I navigate my sugar intake. Hence, I give you 3 easy no-bake plant-based desserts to pamper your sweet tooth without having to feel guilty!
These easy no-bake plant-based desserts are made with sweeteners that I swear by!
Let’s start with my all-time favourite, Coconut Sugar. This sugar ranks lower on the glycemic index than many other forms of sugar, which means your blood sugar levels remain more stable in comparison.
Because it’s not highly processed and retains many of its original nutrients, coconut sugar has a rich brown colour. It also has a delicious, textured aroma as opposed to the bland sterile smell of refined white sugar. You can see why I’m a fan.
To produce the sugar, the sap is collected by tapping the coconut blossom and then gently heated to evaporate the moisture content. It’s a gentle process which I love because it means the sugar is not highly refined or processed and remains very close to its original nature.
As it caramelises, the flavours intensify slightly, lending a richness and depth to desserts and sweet dishes. Each mouthful of fresh sap is incredible. It’s truly nature’s candy.
Bringing in maple syrup… Let’s all give a round of applause to my dear friend maple syrup. It is made from the sap of maple trees. Period. The end. That’s it.
Look out for anything that attempts to pass itself off as maple syrup. Imposters like “maple-flavoured syrup”, pancake syrup, waffle syrup and other syrups will attempt to seduce you with their treacle-coloured caramelly looks but be warned, they are usually made from processed, high-fructose corn syrup. Walk away. Just walk away.
Maple syrup remains very close to nature, which means our bodies delight in its flavour and components. After the sap is collected, it is heated to remove the moisture while retaining all of the complex minerals and antioxidants which yield its distinct flavours.
It’s my favourite sweetener to cook with and I know it feels good in my body. Life without maple syrup would indeed be a bitter life.
So in saying, those I mentioned here are yummy sweets that make my days sweeter and hope they make yours just as sweet.
