Sugar free blended vegan coffee

30 Jan

Take that, Starbucks!

1 cup brewed coffee
1 cup almond milk
2 dried, pitted dates
1 frozen banana
A few dashes ground cinnamon

Blend everything together! I suggest blending up the dates with almond milk first if you have a weaker blender, like mine.

Sugar free, low fat, guilt free!

My fat free, no yeast, vegan pizza!

18 Jan

I must say I’m pretty proud of this post. Late last night I suddenly got a huge craving for pizza. It was probably still early enough to order from Domino’s, but 1) I didn’t have the cash and 2) I hardly do that anymore because it’s higher fat than I’m used to eating.

I tried searching online for a vegan, fat free, yeast free pizza dough recipe but had no luck… So I thought I’d throw caution to the wind and see if I could create my own. This is basically new to me – creating completely my own recipes – so I was overjoyed when it turned out amazing!

So, I thought I would share. 🙂

Fat Free, Yeast Free, Vegan Pizza

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
1 1/4 c. White whole wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
Few dashes Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 c. non-dairy milk (I used Silk soy original)
2-3 tbsp water

Topping:
Canned tomato sauce, as needed
Nutritional yeast, as needed
Fresh veggies of choice (I used sliced bell pepper and spinach leaves)

To make:
Whisk together all dry ingredients, then add non-dairy milk and water and stir until a ball forms. Add a little more water if dough seems too dry.

Knead 5 times, then roll out on a greased cookie dough sheet and spray dough with cooking spray. Spread tomato sauce on top, sprinkle nutritional yeast, and add veggies!

Bake 20-25 minutes. It took 23 for me.
Enjoy!
