A meal just isn’t complete without something sweet to finish everything off. Oftentimes, you’d just buy a chocolate bar or a tub of ice cream for your dessert, but where’s the fun in that? Why not try making some dessert on your own, using as few ingredients as possible to save some money? Here’s Food Recipes to help you with some easy desserts that take fewer than six ingredients:
Dark chocolate-dipped bananas
Can’t wait for your bananas to get overripe for that banana cake you were planning? Try blending its sweetness with the rich bitterness of dark chocolate! All you need for the chocolate dip is some dark chocolate and coconut oil.
Before you prepare the choco dip, put your bananas on a stick first and freeze them for at least an hour. While you’re at it, melt some dark chocolate in a bowl placed on top of a saucepan with gently simmering water. Once the chocolate has melted, mix some coconut oil in. Dip your bananas in and sprinkle whatever toppings you like or you could just put them in the fridge right away.
Raspberry cheesecake mousse
Raspberry cheesecake mousse combines two desserts in one delicious meal-ender. You will need these tools to get this done: a mesh sieve, an electric mixer, and an immersion blender or hand mixer.
To prepare this dessert, puree some raspberries in a blender and beat some cream cheese in a bowl. Add sweetener and salt to the cream cheese before adding the raspberry puree. In another bowl, whip some heavy cream to medium peaks. Fold in half of the raspberry mixture, stir some more, and add the rest. Divide the cheesecake mousse into cups, cover, and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Peanut butter cookies
This snack is perfect for those who are on a low-carb diet because the main ingredient for this is unsweetened and unsalted peanut butter. Aside from that, you will need an artificial sweetener and fine sea salt.
To make the simplest peanut butter cookies, just add the artificial sweetener and sea salt with the peanut butter and mix them in a bowl. Mold the mixture into small balls and flatten them into cookie-shaped disks. Bake them at 350ºF for 9 to 11 minutes or until the edges are brown.
Whipped chocolate coconut pudding
This one’s for the lactose intolerant people who are also watching their sugar consumption. The traditional way of making chocolate pudding needs dairy and sugar, but this dessert replaces the dairy with coconut cream and the sugar with date syrup.
Pour half of your coconut cream in a saucepan while put the other half in the chiller. Add cocoa powder and date syrup into the coconut milk in the saucepan. Keep stirring in medium heat until the mixture thickens. Remove it from the heat afterwards and add vanilla extract, sea salt, and espresso powder. Cool the pudding further and whip the remaining coconut cream before adding it on top.
Just because a dessert doesn’t have lots of ingredients doesn’t mean it won’t be as good as store-bought ones. The recipes on this list may only need a few ingredients, but you are also free to add your personal touches to it to make it more delicious.
