A tangy dessert to convert chocolate lovers
In my family dessert is a religion.
We don’t discriminate. As long as it’s sweet, we’re interested.
But I’ve heard so many times over the years, I only like chocolate desserts. Well chocolate fans, this one might flip ya.
These are tangy, rich, and addicting.
Use your Vitamix to whip up a batch of these vegan lemon bars, and convert the chocoholics in your life!
Even my husband liked them!
I love making desserts. I’m known as the “the baker” in my group of friends.
But my vegan husband is pretty much a strict chocolate guy.
It’s impossible to get him excited about fruit pies, oatmeal cookies, or anything “not-chocolate”.
But I made these bars anyway hoping he’d see the light.
I used Oh My Veggies lemon bar recipe as a basis and worked from there.
Simplifying is always my goal, so I used whole fruit and threw everything into our Vitamix.
The process was so easy, didn’t have to use my stovetop or dirty a saucepan.
And the results? Excellent! You know how I know?
Lenny loved them!
He wanted seconds… he asked for more… he legit enjoyed.
Whip together a batch, you’ll be surprised at how decadent lemons can be.
