3 Sugar-free Vegan Recipes for Two + NuNaturals Flavored Syrups

Sugar-free Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie by An Unrefined Vegan

Sugar-free Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie by An Unrefined Vegan

The fine folks at NuNaturals recently sent me a big box of some of their newest products so I was inspired to create three recipes using their ever expanding line of stevia-sweetened and flavored syrups. I use the heck out of these products and I think you’ll fall in love with them, too. 

SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS ABOUT NUNATURALS ORDER AND SHIPPING DISCOUNTS!

First up is Sweet Potato Pie Smoothie for Two. This silky, rich smoothie addresses the in-between season we are entering: the days are still hot, but the sun is starting to lose its potency and we can almost smell fall in the air. So you can cool off while enjoying the comforting, spicy flavors of a classical fall dessert: sweet potato pie. To sweeten this, I used a brand new NuNaturals product that I just love: Ginger Syrup. It has wonderful genuine ginger heat/zip + a mild (no bitterness!) sweetness that keeps the guilt factor to a minimum.

Next up is a simple breakfast recipe. Vanilla Pancakes for Two features Vanilla Syrup and Green Banana Flour. The vanilla shines through these fluffy ‘cakes and the banana flour adds a nice hit of potassium to your recipes. It’s a gluten-free flour, so if you avoid that ingredient, you’ll want to give this product a try in your baking blends.

The final recipe is another very easy, very quick cold weather classic: Minty Hot Cocoa for Two. If you haven’t tried NuNaturals Cocoa Mint Syrup or Cocoa Syrup, you are depriving yourself of a colossal treat. These thick, rich syrups are a great way to boost the chocolate flavor in baked goods and smoothies while adding a touch of guilt-free sweetness. They’re really fantastic. I also use NuNaturals Organic Dutch Process Cocoa in this recipe because of its high quality and intense chocolate flavor. (BTW, the cute double-walled latte/tea cups in the photos are from Kitchables.) I’m excited that NuNaturals will soon be adding yet two more stevia syrups to their line-up: pumpkin and chai. Think of the possibilities for fall baking!

* Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Your Daily Values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs.
Ingredients
  1. 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  2. 1/4 cup NuNaturals Green Banana Flour**
  3. 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  4. 1/2 tsp. vanilla powder*
  5. pinch sea salt
  6. 1 cup non-dairy milk
  7. 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
  8. 2 tsp. NuNaturals NuStevia Vanilla Syrup
Instructions
  1. Set an electric griddle to 350-degrees F. You might also want to warm up two plates in the oven.
  2. While the griddle comes to temperature, whisk together the flours, baking powder, vanilla powder and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the non-dairy milk, apple cider vinegar and Vanilla Syrup. Let sit for a few minutes before pouring into the dry ingredients. Whisk or stir until combined. A few small clumps are okay. Let the batter rest for a few minutes.
  4. When the griddles reaches 350-degrees, turn it down to 300-degrees. Lightly spray the griddle with oil and ladle out four pancakes (or as many as will comfortably fit) - about 1/4 cup of batter each. Gently spread each into a circle.
  5. When bubbles pop up along the sides of the pancakes and the batter loses its sheen, gently flip and allow to cook for 3-4 more minutes. Remove pancakes and cover to keep warm. Cook the remaining batter in the same manner.
  6. Divide pancakes between the warmed plates and serve with your favorite pancake toppings.
Notes
  1. ** If you don't have Green Banana Flour, use additional whole wheat pastry flour instead.
  2. * If you don't have vanilla powder, use vanilla extract.
