Are You Sweet, Savory & Sippable?


If you haven't noticed, I love a recipe challenge. Better yet, I like to create recipes that are fast, easy and simple as well as allergy-friendly. So of course, as soon as I saw the So Delicious and Go Dairy Free Snackable Recipe Contest, my mind went into overdrive.  I mean, creating recipes using So Delicious is awesome (NutriFamily loves their products!) but what truly caught my attention (no reason to lie) are the possible prizes that are being offered. Sharing my recipes is absolutely appreciated but with school beginning soon and more demands of my recipes coming up, let's face it- even Nutrimom could use a little extra help to get all of these demands filled.


Prizes Let's just cut to the chase- we all know that this is the first thing that we look at anyway so here goes. As seen on GoDairyFree here is what's what-

Grand Prize Winners: $1000 Each (3 Winners!)
We want to see those treasured "snackable" dairy-free recipes (up to 2 recipes per category per entrant!), so we're awarding grand prizes to our favorite in each category:

Not a Blogger? Great news- this contest is open to BOTH bloggers and non-bloggers so grab your kitchen gear and get to work! 

Sharing Time! And now, for the moment that you have all been waiting for (well, not as good as Hey, you won! but still exciting I think) - I present the recipes that I would like to officially submit for this contest.

Sweet Category:  
Short Strawberry Cakes 
A simple, dairy-free dessert that is so delicious! Get it, so delicious ;)

Strawberries (cleaned & halved)
Your choice of graham crackers (crumbled)

Using a melon baller, gently scoop out a small amount of the strawberries center, leaving the bottom of the strawberry intact. Fill with desired amount of Cocoa Whip and sprinkle with crushed graham crackers.

Bonus Sweet Category:
Eclair Bon Bons
So easy you won't want to share but please do


Enjoy Life Foods Chocolate Mini Chips
Winona Pure Coconut Spray Oil (or other flavor of choice)

Prepare the Filling:
In a large bowl, mix the dairy free cream cheese and the cultured coconut milk with an electric beater. Add the whip topping, scraping the sides of the bowl with a spatula to ensure complete mixing.

Assemble the Treats:
Place baking cups in large muffin tins and set aside*. Using waxed paper, flatten the double brownie cookies but making sure they are still intact. Set aside.

Heat the chocolate chips and a squirt of coconut oil until melted. Gently place one flattened cookie into a baking cup, leaving an equal number of cookies for the top. Fill with a dollop of the prepared filling and place another flattened cookie on top. Cover with melted chocolate, gently lifting the baking cup to allow the melted chocolate to reach the bottom of the cup. Cool in the refrigerator until firm.

Store in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Makes approximately 6 bon bons with additional filling.

Special thank you to Go Veggie for featuring this recipe on the website :) 


Savory Category
Kim Chi Slaw 
A dairy-free twist on a great probiotic-packed side


1/2 Cup your choice of Kim chi

Using a mini chopper, chop Kim chi. Add unsweetened cultured coconut milk and mix well. Add to burgers, wraps or wherever your taste buds desire.

Sippable Category: 
Creamer Cubes
Don't water down your cold beverages when you can enhance them!

Optional- cinnamon, cloves, cocoa or other spices
Prepared beverage of your choice (iced coffee pictured)

Shake the coconut creamer well and pour evenly into an ice cube tray. Sprinkle with your choice of spice and gently swirl with a toothpick. Freeze completely. 

To remove, use a sharp knife to gently run along the edges of the cubes, then remove. The creamer will still be a bit on the soft side 


Ready to Enter? Better get to it- the contest deadline is midnight August 31st, 2015! Special thank yous to So Delicious and Go Dairy Free for inspiring me to keep inventing! Wishing everyone good luck, great recipes and delicious ideas~
