Are you looking for the best vegan ice cream ever? So Delicious has you completely covered with their large selection of non dairy frozen desserts. You can find fudge bars, sandwiches, pints, and dipped bars amongst all of the awesomeness. Every single one is to die for. AND they’re vegan. I recently tried their Dipped Mocha Almond Fudge. I mean…just wow. You really can’t go wrong with frozen almondmilk swirled with fudge, encased in chocolate and almonds. It’s literally a win win situation.
What I loved most is their coconut milk CocoWhip!™ Sooo good! I could seriously just be a happy girl with a spoon and a tub of it in my lap. Just happy and loving life! I’ve also enjoyed the whip on top of my daughter’s vegan pumpkin pie, which is to die for. That combo made me very happy.
One morning I added a dollop to my coffee with a sprinkle of pumpkin spice. Yummy! Have ever had one of those mug cakes? You know the ones were you just mix a few ingredients up in a coffee mug, throw it in the microwave, and a couple minutes later you have a mini not for sharing cake. Well, I made a chocolate mug cake and added this CocoWhip!™ on top and the rest of my evening was won. As you can see, I’m a fan of this CocoWhip!™ It’s so good!
So Delicious also has a fantastic selection of dairy free yogurts, creamers, cheese flavored shreds, and milk alternatives. I love their Unsweetened Coconutmilk Beverage. It tastes great in coffee and with a big bowl of cereal. It is also great for a milk alternative for your baking recipes. I’ve used it for cornbread, cake, and waffles. It worked well for all of them.
For the last year, I’ve opted to forgo dairy when ordering my espresso beverages. Partly because last year, this time, during National Vegan Month, I had decided to go vegan which included eliminating dairy from my coffee. After the month was over, I had a latte with milk and it tasted funny. I had gotten used to the taste of the milk alternatives. I actually enjoyed them. So from that point on, I ordered my espresso with either almond or oat milk. I love that these milk alternatives even make a great froth as well. And you still get the pretty latte art. Winning!
How to Order Vegan Espresso Beverages
1. First inquire about milk alternatives. Alternatives usually include soy, almond, and coconut milk.
2. Be sure to tell the barista to hold any whipped cream, Java chips, sweet condensed milk, white mocha, pumpkin spice, caramel drizzle, chocolate, chai mix, and any honey based products.
3. When in doubt just ask the barista what the ingredients in the beverage is.
4. Or just build your own, using vegan-friendly ingredients you’re familiar with.
So with today being National Cappuccino Day AND National Vegan Month I went to my favorite coffee shop and enjoyed a cappuccino with almond milk. It was quite amazing!
Yes! You read the title right. I’m over grilling and we’re well into Fall. It may be 45 degrees, but that not stopping me. I picked up these amazing portobello mushrooms up at the farmers market yesterday and they are screaming to be fired up on the grill! It’s the second day of National Vegan Month, so I thought I would heat things up a bit.
What’s even more exciting is that I just got a special delivery from the good people at Follow Your Heart. They hooked me up with some amazing vegan cheese alternatives. I thought that Smoked Gouda Style Slices would be perfect for this burger. And it was! It melted perfectly and tasted much like the dairy version. Mmmmmm. I can’t wait to make this again!
Today we welcome November. First of all, how is it already November?!? I’m very excited about this month nonetheless because it is National Vegan Month. And you know what that means? Yes, I will be once again be going vegan for the month. Last year, this time, I did and really enjoyed it. This year, I’m going a bit further and adding vegan and cruelty-free personal, skin, and beauty products as well.
So what exactly does it mean to be a vegan? Well being vegan means that a person does not eat or use any animal products. If it comes from an animal, they’re not eating it!
You might be thinking that this way of living must have its challenges. Yes of course, but it can definitely be done. Last year, I took on the challenge of being a vegan for a month and it was actually quite easy. It was pretty adventurous trying to find new recipes to cook. I felt so much better while I was doing it too. I decided that I’d give it a go again and maybe this time I’d continue for a couple more months. I ultimately want to make the change permanently. It’s time. But for now one month at a time.
