Ⓥ Vegan Kitchen: Favorite Dairy Alternatives Ⓥ

This Wednesday' Favorites is from my Vegan Kitchen! :) 

People sometimes think that being Vegan is difficult, well it's not, especially when there are soooo many dairy-alternatives out there to choose from! Here are some of my favorites that can be found in my kitchen...

Natura Rice Milk: There are sooo many milk alternatives out there! Soy milk, Almond milk, Hemp milk, Rice Milk, and more! Natura is a personal favorite--sugar free too! 

          Daiya Mozzarella Cheese: I've tried several different cheese alternatives before but this one is easily my favorite. Makes a wicked grilled cheese! :D 

Nancy's cultured Soy "yogurt":
this soygurt is amazing!! I add it to smoothies, granola, with fruit, or eat it straight from the container! Sweetened with Agave Nectar so it's sugar-free. It also comes in different flavors.

Rice Dream "ice cream": omg this stuff is amazing!! Seriously, you don't need ice cream, there are sooo many awesome alternatives! This Cocoa Marble Fudge Rice Dream is awesome! I've also tried Coconut "ice creams" before that I loved and Soy-alternatives and have loved them all! This one is sweetened with Agave Nectar though which is why I usually choose it over the soy ones, but there are some amazing flavors out there in the soy variety! 

Endangered Species Chocolate Bars: and of course, everyone needs a chocolate replacement ;). These are 72% dark chocolate and sweetened with beet sugar. Totally dairy-free :). They taste amazing, although some of you may have to get used to the "healthy" taste and adjust from gross sugary candy-bars ;). 

Earth Balance "butter": I don't actually use margarine/butter or anything much but when I do need some Earth Balance is awesome! :)

Tofutti Cream Cheese: I don't eat much cream cheese either but this stuff is awesome. Makes a great cheesecake too ;)

Soy Nice Noel Nog: I know the season has kinda passed but I thought I'd share this one anyways. I personally found regular eggnog too rich to begin with so this stuff is perfect! A great soy alternative during the holiday season with no stealing milk from baby cows ;) 

Peace & Love,

  1. I loooove Rice Dream.. I've never seen the ice cream before, but the regular rice milk and chocolate rice milk is deliciouso!

  2. I have tried all of it except that brand of milk, and the yogurt ;) I LOOOOOOVE the Daiya cheese, and the cream cheese because now I can still have my bagel at work in the morning ;) I do like the So Delicious coconut milk ice cream better than the Rice Dream though...but it's still tasty! :D

  3. I agree, I like coconut milk one better and lots of the soy ones, but I just watch for the cane sugar and choose agave nectar ones instead when I can. But I like that there are more flavors in the non-rice ones. Not sure why that is :p

  4. Thanks for sharing! I was wondering if the Tofutti cream cheese was good, cause that's the only brand available at the Vegan store in Madrid!
