Vegan Coconut Pancakes with Mango Sauce

It finally feels like Winter here in Chicago, temperature is dipping and my trenchcoat+beanie+gloves are out! Not really complaining since this is my fifth winter here and I’m kinda used to it. We went grocery shopping on Saturday and was surprised to see mangoes and pineapple and grabbed them, I love me some tropical fruits in Winter. Also, those vegan scones from last week got me thinking.. What other ways can I make a delicious breakfast that are also Vegan? I vaguely remember seeing this recipe somewhere, can’t remember where but it came out just the way I wanted. image1-44 Read More …

Vegan Maple-Walnut Scones

I have been baking cookies, cakes, bread since 3-4 years but for some reason I never got around to bake scones. Recently I had orange scones at Panera Bread and wanted to make them at home. So, I was scouting for an easy recipe and came across this amazing recipe and loved it since this doesn’t require any extra sugar.  This recipe is sugarfree, eggless and if you’re using non-dairy milk like me then it’s completely vegan! Hi5!! Alrighty, here’s how I make them. image1-42 Read More …

Vegan Green Smoothie

In my previous post I had mentioned that I lost my dad to cancer recently and life’s been rough and pointless since then.. I have been shutting myself away from everyone and living in my own cocoon.. It’s impacting me not just emotionally but also mentally and physically.. I’m losing hair at an alarming rate, my stomach and head hurts all day when I sob.. I’m struggling to deal with the loss and sadly, I’m not able to express it orally to anyone.. Until last week, I din’t feel like cooking/ blogging/watching TV.. Everyone deals with the pain of loss differently, it’s a learning process for me. And, I have realized that I need to find happiness in simplest of things and try to live life one moment at a time.. I have decided to cook something that my dad likes, so that I’d get the motivation to cook something everyday.. I’ll also try to blog the recipe.. So for today, I made this delicious vegan smoothie.. Growing up, my dad used to feed us  a lot of avocados in the form of ice-cream, pudding, milkshake/smoothie.. So I came up with this smoothie for today which is loaded with spinach, pineapple, avocado(no points for guessing that), almond milk and lots of memories.. We had this smoothie after our evening walk, not only this smoothie was delicious but it was super refreshing and energy-boosting.. Green_smoothie Read More …
