1. Blackberry Yogurt Popsicles
If you love all things tart, then this tangy dessert is for you. You need 20oz of plain triple cream yogurt or coconut yogurt for dairy-free. Grab 2 cups of blackberries, 1 tsp of liquid stevia, and some melted chocolate if desired.
You can also opt for unsweetened chocolate! Blend all of the ingredients except for the chocolate together. Once blended fully, fill popsicle molds and freeze for about 3 hours.
The final touch is to drizzle with the melted chocolate after freezing and removing from the molds. Bitter yumminess!
2. Banana Ice Cream
This ice cream dessert is naturally paleo, dairy-free, and vegan. Banana is the only ingredient! And all you’ll need is a food processor.
Of course, you always have the option to add more flavors of your own like cocoa powder, peanut butter, vanilla, and more! If you want to add your own extra flavors into your ice cream, then add in small portions and taste it as you go until you get the flavor you desire.
Take 2 chopped up frozen bananas and blend in the food processor. After around 30 seconds, stop and mix chunks with a spoon. Then continue blending until smooth.
And that’s it! You’ve got yourself a delicious banana ice cream! Don’t forget to add those extra flavorings you want while blending.
3. Pumpkin Brownies
Ready for a scrumptious pumpkin brownie recipe that only calls for 3 ingredients? Here it is! These brownies are butter, flour, grain, and sugar-free.
Yet, they’re still naturally rich and fudgy. You need 1 cup of pumpkin puree (substitute 1/2 a cup with mashed up bananas for a sweeter brownie), 1/2 a cup of almond butter (can substitute with peanut, cashew, or nut spread if desired), and 1/4-2/3 cocoa powder (the more powder, the richer the taste).
Preheat oven to 350° and spray a small pan with cooking spray. Add all ingredients into a blender, food processor, or large bowl and blend until a thick batter is produced. Once complete, pour the batter into the pan and bake for 12-15 minutes.
