Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich

A true Vanilla Bean dream! Creamy Forager Project Vanilla Bean frozen dessert sandwiched between soft chocolate chip cookies is an unbeatable combination. Make these Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches and see for yourself!


Vegan Hot Chocolate


This dairy-free and Vegan Hot Chocolate is an easy and satisfying dessert. You can also add a shot of expresso to this vegan hot chocolate for a great afternoon pick me up. The best part of this hot chocolate is the last few sips – saving a tablespoon of chocolate chips for the bottom of the cup makes for a delicious sip of melted chocolate at the end.  If you prefer frozen hot chocolate, try this Cocoa Cashew Smoothie.


Vanilla Cupcakes


These Vanilla Cupcakes are the perfect moist cupcake recipe to have on hand.  Forager Project Vanilla Bean Cashewmilk Yogurt adds body to this decadent, vegan frosting to create a frosting with less sugar and more vanilla flavor. The cake batter is sweetened with coconut sugar, giving it a subtle brown sugar caramel flavor. This recipe is gluten free and calls for gluten free flour, but you can also substitute all-purpose flour, if you prefer. Make extra vanilla frosting and use it to top berries or bananas and chocolate if you have a sweet craving but not enough time to make the full cake!


Vegan Brownies


These dairy free and Vegan Brownies are gooey on the inside with a nice crunch on bottom from the Grain-free O’s cereal crust. For a triple chocolate brownie, try switching the Plain Grain-free O’s for the Chocolate in this recipe.


Orange Creamsicle Frozen Yogurt


This simple five-ingredient Orange Creamsicle Frozen Yogurt is an easy and delicious, sweet treat.  Zesty orange juice and sweet vanilla come together in this healthy, vegan take on a classic orange creamsicle. Antioxidant rich turmeric powder boosts the subtle orange color and adds a nice earthy note to this satisfying treat. Feel free to swap the navel orange with a Tangerine or Valencia orange, depending on the time of year.


Easy No-Bake Chocolate Date Bars

These Easy No-Bake Chocolate Date Bars are quick and easy to make using simple ingredients. Make these bars ahead of time for the perfect snack or dessert. With only seven ingredients, these bars only require a few pantry staples (dates, nuts, coconut oil).  Added bonus – these bars are vegan, gluten-free, and naturally sweetened with dates.


Cookies & Cream Ice Cream Bites
