Nana’s Banana Bread

This banana bread recipe has been in my family for a few generations. My mom has been making it for my whole life, and her mom has been making it for even longer. Scroll to the bottom to see a picture of my adorable fam! All credit goes to my nana for the original recipe and my mom who veganized it last year.

Trust me. You want to make this recipe, right now.

Vegan Crispy Rice Trees

There’s nothing better than fast recipes that are vegan, festive and delicious. These “Rice Krispies” are definitely all three of those things, and more! Did you know that Kellogg’s Rice Krispies cereal isn’t vegan? Unfortunately they fortify the cereal with D3 from sheep’s wool. I mean, come on. Is that really necessary? Did you also know that normal marshmallows aren’t vegan, either? They contain gelatin (ew – basically various animal parts boiled together). Of course, there are amazing vegan options for puffed rice cereal and marshmallows that make this recipe super easy and even more delicious!

EASY Vegan Charcuterie Board

The trick to creating a deliciously vegan & EASY charcuterie board is knowing the vegan meat/cheese world – and knowing what you like. I am obsessed with Daiya’s smoked gouda cheese. It does not have that nasty Daiya taste – it slices easy, looks pretty and doesn’t have any over-powering flavours. I also love Field Roast’s smoked apple sage sausage. These two products are almost always the stars of my vegan charcuterie boards. (For my local friends – I always buy the smoked gouda at Save On Foods and the sausages at Save On Foods or The Real Canadian Superstore).

Nog Chocolate

During December, one of my favourite things to do is watch cheesy Christmas movies at my house, with my tree turned on and a cozy holiday drink. It’s so relaxing and puts me right in the holiday spirit!

Before I went vegan, I don’t think I had ever actually tried egg-nog. The thought of it completely grossed me out. But, now that there are so many vegan options out there – I thought I’d try Almond Nog by Earth’s Own. It’s super delicious, spiced-to-perfection and it tastes like Christmas in a cup!

This recipe calls for a few additional ingredients to be mixed in with any vegan eggnog (I’ve also tried the Holiday Nog by So Delicious and it’s amazing too!) This recipe perfect for Christmas Eve while you’re relaxing with your families.
