With the new baking frenzy that’s going on, you probably ran out of baking ingredients already. But what do you do if your sweet tooth’s cravings start to take over? Don’t worry! We have a few ideas to get you started! With only five ingredients (or less), these treats will have you munching away in no time!
Brownies that are healthy AND have minimal ingredients? We’re on board for that! In a bowl, mix 1 cup dark chocolate (melted and slightly cooled) with 1/3 cup honey. Mix in 2 eggs (whisked until foamy), and whisk until combined. Add 1/3 cup whole wheat flour and a pinch of salt. Mix until just combined (don’t overmix). Pour into an 8” x 8” greased baking tin and bake for 15 min at 350°F (180°). Cool and enjoy!
Popsicles are great for a quick snack that cools you off at the same time. While we are on the topic of healthy and easy desserts, we have to tell you about this recipe. In a food processor, blitz 1 large can coconut milk, 2 cups strawberries, 1 banana, and honey (to your taste). Pour into molds, and freeze.
As the weather is warming up, it’s time to get out all your ice cream recipes. This is an easy (and healthy!) recipe you can add to your collection. You don’t even need an ice cream churner. In a food processor, add 3 bananas (chopped and frozen), ¼ cup of milk, and vanilla extract. Blitz until smooth, and freeze in a loaf pan for about an hour. Scoop out and enjoy!
Chef Annabel Langbein has a deliciously easy chocolate mousse recipe. All you need is 200g dark chocolate, 2 cups of cream, and 1 cup chopped marshmallows. Heat the chocolate with 1 cup cream, and marshmallows, and stir until completely melted and smooth. To avoid the chocolate from getting too hot, you can use a double boiler. Remove the mixture from the heat, and cool to room temperature. Beat the rest of the cream until you get soft peaks and fold this into the chocolate mixture. Spoon into serving glasses, and cool overnight.
