Hello! Thanks for the recipe! I can't wait to try it. My husband can't have dairy and misses it so! However, he's also allergic to nuts, and SO many replacement recipes seem to have nuts in them. I was just wondering if there is a substitute for the sweetener you used. Obviously, there are other sweeteners, but I have never used that one before so I'm not sure what kind of ratio it would be. Thanks!
Hi Erica! Thanks so much for your comment! I have found that liquid stevia also works but you'll need a little bit more for the same sweetness. I would start with 6 extra drops and then add more to taste! Also, the flavor really settles in the next day and is even better. You could also try a granulated sweetener - start with 2.5 Tbsp and add more if necessary 🙂
You could also use agave!
Thank you for the recipe. It's really tasty! How long does it last in the fridge?
So glad you liked this recipe!! I would say at least 4 days. Possibly more, but just smell it to make sure it smells like it did the day before 🙂
I love your recipes. They are so practical, useful, delicious, thrifty, and what else can I say? I can't wait for the next new one to show up!
How I wish I could afford to hire you as a life coach. I have serious weight issues and physical disabilities. I'm a mess. 🙂 :But I keep my sense of humor thru it all. Thank God for that!
Keep the recipes coming!
Bonnie! Thank you for your sweet comment! I am glad that you keep your sense of humor - that is important through life's schleps! 🙂 Please do email me anytime, as I would LOVE to help you along your journey!! firstname.lastname@example.org.
Amazing! Can we use maple syrup as the sweetener? Also, how long does it last in the fridge? Can you freeze it?
Hi Stephanie! I think maple syrup will work wonderfully! This should last 3-4 days in the fridge (maybe longer, I've always finished it before 4 days because I love it so much!). I've never tried freezing it so I'm not sure about that... you might just have to blend it up again after it defrosts 🙂
Ji Annie, Im wondering what does the nutrional yeast brings/do in the recipe? Can I make this without it? I sooooo want to try it but don't have the yeast at home!
Hi Trish! It just adds more flavor, but you can definitely make the recipe without it 😁 I would probably add a tad more spices to compensate.
