Looking for a somewhat healthy treat to balance out all of the green beer you’re apt to drink on St. Patrick’s Day? Check out my super simple recipe for Vegan No-Bake Matcha Cheesecake Bites below.

The filling is a combination of soaked cashews, matcha powder, sweetener, and lemon juice. I adapted my recipe from the Minimalist Baker. You can find the original here.

I used pitted dates and walnuts for the crust and it came out divine! Can’t wait to try it out in other dessert recipes. 😊

5-Minute Vegan Banana Chia Pudding

One of my mom’s favorite dessert recipes to tackle, aside from the perfect cheesecake, was banana pudding. I remember going to the store and grabbing that big yellow box of ‘Nilla wafers, the bananas, the jello. Nothing beats the smell of bananas, vanilla wafers, and whipped cream combined. Before I went vegan, I was also a big fan of Marie Calender’s Banana Crean Pie. Back then, I didn’t care that Mrs. Calender’s pies were loaded with Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Shortening (trans fats) and Sorbitan Monostearate (synthetic wax), all I knew was that I liked the taste.

Nostalgia for my mom’s cooking, and a desire to make a healthier, more nutritious banana dessert inspired me to tackle a 5 minute vegan banana chia pudding recipe. No offense to Mrs. Calender, but please step away from her pies. Check out my recipe for 5 minute vegan banana chia pudding after the jump.

Enjoy!
