I made another visit to the huckleberry bush and apple tree so that I could make some fresh huckleberry sherbet. Pretty simple stuff – just transparent apples, the berries, agave, soy milk, and a couple hours in the freezer!
I also thought it was just about time for another garden update so I wandered about the yard the other afternoon and took some shots of what the garden’s been up to these days. As you can see, there are quite a few flowers!

I actually found some purple taro-flavoured dessert tofu! It’s a delicious and healthy way to satisfy a craving for something sweet. It went together perfectly with some chocolate, dates, apple, and grapes.

Lookit what I had for dessert last night!
As the base, I mixed pre-soaked chia seeds with soy milk and a drop of rosewater. Then, I added in slices of strawberries, banana, and dried fig – topped with pumpkin seed granola. Delicious! It was a really refreshing treat on a hot summer evening.

I just got one of these from the local bakery!
Anpan (a.k.a Red bean buns) have always been a favorite treat of mine. They’re very sweet and delicious, and the red bean paste filling tastes just like chocolate. Plus, if you can hunt down some that don’t have egg wash on them, they’re the perfect treat for vegans because the red beans are very nutritious.

This was dessert last night:
Freshly peeled grapefruit with banana slices and almond flavoured tofu, topped with pastry flakes. The perfect combination!

I’ve been slowing down on my posts lately as a get busy with my killer summer course on statistics, but I really wanted to make a quick update on how my garden as been doing these last few weeks!
I picked a few handfuls of those gooseberries and cooked them up in a rhubarb stew for dessert! They added a really great flavour to my usual recipe.

I cooked up another batch of my rhubarb stew, and also discovered the most delicious way to serve it!
Slices of banana, apple (adds a great crunchiness!), and strawberries, topped with maple caramel flavour dessert tofu. Perfect

My latest idea for a dessert canapé!
- Slice of apple with melted chocolate and walnut, on a wafer spread with strawberry cream

I really felt like some dessert the other night so I decided to throw together a single serving of rice pudding. Here’s what I came up with!
- brown rice
- homemade applesauce
- soy milk
- topped with pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, and dried cranberries
- My first ever attempt at rice pudding, but it turned out great & it’s super easy!

One of the things I really look forward to every spring is picking some fresh rhubarb from the garden and cooking up my favorite dessert. I’ve been eating it each spring ever since I was a little kid, and I just can’t get enough of it!
- First I wash the rhubarb, cut it into chunks, and put it all in a big pot.
- Add in just enough water to cover it and as much sugar as you prefer (and some strawberries if you have some!)
- Then, put the stove on high until it boils.
- Once it has boiled, lower the heat and let it simmer for about 10 minutes, or until it’s really nice and soft.
I used to eat this with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, but since going vegan, some custard flavoured dessert tofu really does the trick (:
