Whether you’re on the app or not–this is me proclaiming that a lot of awesome recipes can be found while scrolling (or searching) on Tiktok. Tiktok actually allowed me to discover some incredible chef’s and home cooks. Seriously incredible that they have made extended appearances on cooking competition shows. Honestly–seeing Social Media Chef as a tag for people has been super cool!
But to move things along–I spend time each week looking for recipes on Tiktok that I can make quickly during the week to record for flash reviews. I’ve made a handful of these Tiktok recipes now, so let’s recap on my Top 5 Favorite Recipes that I’ve found and tried from Tiktok.
1. Viral Broccoli Pasta
There was a viral pasta recipe that made its rounds on Tiktok that consisted of Feta and tomatoes. I tried that one about a year ago, but it just was a bit too acidic for my taste. But this? I stumbled across this recipe posted by Sarah Williams on Tiktok and I just had to try it. Super simple and ready to have on the table in under an hour. When it comes to one pan pasta sauces–this one will keep me coming back. Broccoli, garlic, Boursin cheese–I’m in heaven complete with Gluten-free pasta! This is a must-try from me!
2. Easy Weeknight Egg Salad
3. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Yogurt Bites
Tiktok is full of over the top recipes that either give me a stomach ache or a cavity just thinking about them, but then there are these gems. If you have some Greek yogurt, strawberries, sweetener, and chocolate around then you can make my new favorite frozen treat. Seriously. I absolutely love chocolate covered yogurt items and this one keeps it a little healthier.
It takes about a little over an hour to try your first bite of this, but it’s well worth it. I love the tartness of Greek yogurt and the semi-sweetness from the chocolate. The bites of strawberry hit the spot just right. If you’re looking for a fun summer treat, this has my vote for sure!
4. Big Mac Smash Burger Tacos
5. “Snickers” Yogurt Dessert
You guessed it. Another “healthy” recipe. This calls for Greek yogurt, chocolate, peanut butter, maple syrup, if you’d like, and some peanuts…or whatever nut you have on hand. I had almonds. If you’re not a fan of the tart Greek yogurt flavor, then I recommend adding a sweetener like honey, maple syrup, or using a flavored Greek yogurt to ease up on some of that tartness. I personally don’t have an issue with that. I think this is a very simple yet fun recipe to try on those nights when you’re craving something sweet.
This hit the spot for me. Now, don’t think that this will be super sweet to resemble a Snickers bar. Remember, that is not that point. It’s simply a semi-sweet idea that you can make to satisfy a sweet craving while still enjoying some protein.
