Vegan Rice Crispy Treats

Hey!

Everyone has their own Rice Crispy Treats recipe and to be honest there is a pretty standard right way to make them! So today I bring you my version of Rice Crispy Treats, that is both vegan and gluten-free and yes maybe a little boring and run of the mill but I love it! They are such an easy dessert to prepare and conquer even the toughest sweet tooth. I have been experimenting with vegan marshmallows and I have found a brand I absolutely love, Dandies! I found mine at Whole Foods, but you can buy them online as well.

Now let’s get started because in about 30 minutes you will have Rice Crispy Treats to eat!!

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a large microwave safe bowl, pour in your vegan marshmallows and coconut oil and place in the microwave until the mixture turns into marshmallow goo. I microwave mine in 30 second intervals until I get the right consistency, about 2 minutes usually.
  2. Take your bowl out of the microwave and pour in your vanilla extract. Mix everything together with a spatula until all your ingredients are well combined.
  3. Slowly add in your cereal to the mixture. I usually do about a cup of cereal at a time since it can get really difficult to mix. Mix until your marshmallow has coated each piece of cereal, I like to have my rice crispy treats to not be too even, I like the bits of marshmallow! But, mix yours however you prefer!
  4. OPTIONAL: Place about a teaspoon of coconut oil onto a paper towel and spread all over the inside of your dish. This will keep the rice crispy treats from sticking.
  5. Pour your mixture into your dish and using slightly damp or oiled hands press firmly until the mixture is evenly spread out and dense.
  6. Allow your treats to cool or place them in the refrigerator for speedier results! I like to cool mine for at least 20-30 minutes.
  7. Cut your rice crispy treats into whatever shape you desire and enjoy!

Servings: Makes 6-8 servings
Prep&Cooling Time: 10 minutes for prep, 20-50 minutes for cooling

The Best Vegan Ice Cream: Amy’s Kitchen Cool Scoops

P1150345Mocha Chip, up close and personal

Welcome Ice Cream Lovers!

Vegan ice cream comes in all shapes, sizes and flavors. But they are not all created equal. Some are icy, too sweet, or maybe they just have a punch in the mouth of overwhelming coconut flavor. So, when you find a delicious, creamy treat you need to rave about it. And that’s how I feel about Amy’s Ice Cream! It started one day when they were on sale at Whole Foods, we decided to try mint chip and see what this brand was all about. And it didn’t disappoint! Now, we have tried all four flavors and currently have a well stocked freezer of their ice cream, it is truly beautiful. With all that said, let’s get on to the review!

TEXTURE

This ice cream has (to me) the best texture of any vegan ice cream I have ever tried. It is creamy and frosty, I have noticed that the chocolate and vanilla flavors are very creamy and thick and the mocha chip and mint chip are more smooth with airy texture. If you are going for something that will fool your non-vegan friends, this is it.

TASTE/FLAVORS

This ice cream comes in four flavors. Mint Chip, Mocha Chip, Vanilla and Chocolate. Each flavor is so delicious and holds its own against competitors. I would have to say our favorites vary from day to day but usually the mocha chip or mint chip is in there! (I haven’t ever been that into plain flavors).

PRICE

At our local Whole Foods the price is usually $6.99 per pint, but they often go on sale for $3.89-6.19 and we try to buy in bulk during sales to save some cash!

RATING

Overall I would give this ice cream a 10/10, no other vegan ice cream has even come close.

Thanks for reading!
