Vegan slices that don't require a blender?


Ours broke the other day...

Got a recipe you love? Doesn't have to be a slice actually but something to fill the void after dinner, before bed, not super heavy, slightly sweet. We were eating little bits of white chocolate but ran out and want to mix it up.

I'm not sure what you mean by "slices"?

If you want something sweet that doesn't require any prep, I suggest dates. One date is sufficient to take care of my craving for something sweet.

If you're ot adverse to baking/cooking, there are many, many recipes for vegan desserts that don't require a blender. Maybe if you clarify what you mean by "slices"?

I keep a ziplock or tupperware full of slices of frozen banana in the freezer. For a snack, I add a few chunks of frozen banana to a bowl, let it thaw just slightly over five or ten minutes, than eat it. Really tastes like ice cream! To liven it up, add some coconut flakes, or chopped nuts, or fresh fruit.

I also like to mix a half a can of pureed pumpkin (found it baking section at most grocery stores) with a banana and pure cocoa powder (found in baking section) or molasses or maple syrup in place of the cocoa. I use stevia as a sweetener but with the cocoa powder, maple syrup is also divine. It makes a kind of doughy pudding that isn't too sweet or rich but seems to fill that need for chocolate lol. I never use the blender for this. I just mix and mash in a bowl.

You can make raspberry chia jam to go with toast for a snack. It is easy. Dump a bag of frozen raspberries into a sauce pan and heat until the raspberries break down to almost liquid but still a little bit of chunk. Add two tablespoons of maple syrup (or other sweetener), and a tablespoon or two of chia seeds to the mix. Take the pan off the stove, let it cool a few minutes, then add the mixture to a glass jar and refrigerate once it is completely cooled. It thickens a lot in an hour and makes a great jam! Just three ingredients. Yes you have to make it ahead, but you'll get a lot of servings out of it and can have it on hand to go over toast, or rice cakes, or inside a tortilla, or over pancakes, or whatever else you want to spread it on.

I second medjool dates! Like dessert and no prep! Any dried fruit will do.

Totally! I eat dates and sultanas like they're goin' outta style and the wanting to make a slice is actually just to be different and/or provide for others less satisfied with simplicity.
I'm one of those people who never uses sauces on dinner, too. Because the actual foods just taste so good in their regular form. Ohhhhh.... ! Yum!

Yes and yay ! Doin' these things, thankyou !

But yep. Fruit is good. I eat frozen bananas and coconut chips for dessert at the moment. It's so hot here. But I need to take some slices to meetings and various stuff like that.

Slices! Is that an Australian term or something?! They're like... blocks that are squidgy mixtures of things and you pop them in the fridge and cut them up. Bars? Except not? hehe

I found a heap of recipes for bliss balls fancy-style (mine are just dried fruit and nuts. These have lemon oil and such...). Those will do too!

Ohhhhhh yum yum yum ....

Thankyou!

Is this the sort of thing for which you're looking?

There's one on here that doesn't require a blender or food processor: http://www.shape.com/healthy-eating/...an-energy-bars
