Where do I start with this beautiful book?? Bianca and Sascha take you on a wonderful journey as they share their own experiences with adopting vegan diets, their favorite essential vegan pantry staples, wonderfully informative kitchen hacks, and they provide you with 75+ recipes that cover the gamut of sweet, savory and everything in-between. And, what's a constant? ALL recipes are easy, approachable, plant-based, and DELICIOUS. I can attest!

 I had an immense amount of trouble choosing a recipe to sample because they all look so tasty, but eventually I settled on trying their Life-Changing Frozen Chocolate. I mean, if I see "Life-Changing" how can I not try it?! 

But first . . .


Here's a beautiful sample of the deliciousness that can be found inside The Veginner's Coobook:

We love our chocolate in this household and already have a habit of storing bars in the freezer and tearing into them while still frozen (who can wait?), so when I saw frozen and chocolate in the same title, they certainly had me intrigued!

What did I discover? This amazing recipe rivals all store-bought chocolate bars that I store in the freezer! I mean, I really could not tell the difference between this Life-Changing Frozen Chocolate and my favorite dark chocolate bars. That's a win in my book!

This chocolate is:

Smooth

Creamy

Has just the right amount of dark chocolate flavor

Is EASY to make

Healthy

And, FUN!
