Delectable Easter-Inspired Vegan Dinners to Try This Year

Another big holiday is on the horizon, which means if you’re a vegan, you’re already starting to panic. Easter is characterized by mountains of chocolate, ham, and other meat and dairy-filled dishes that you just don’t want to appease. Thanks to the versatility of vegan cooking, it’s possible to whip up an entire vegan Easter dinner without anyone batting an eye.

Here are some Easter-inspired vegan dinners to indulge in this year:

1.      Spring stuffing: Without butter, stuffing is mainly vegan! Throw together your favorite spices with bread, vegan broth, and vegetables, slow cooked in the oven until your stuffing is crisp and tender.
2.      Sweet potato pancakes: When we think of spring, we think of lighter veggie-based flavors. Sweet potato perfectly complements any Easter dinner. Whip out some sweet potato pancakes fried in oil for your guests.
3.      Salad: Yes, come April, people are receptive to salad with beach season on the horizon. Get creative with a slew of salad spreads, utilizing the fun flavors of arugula, pine nuts, cranberries, and more.

As always, don’t forget to top the evening off with some vegan sweets. We’re providing an entire line of No Whey Easter chocolate, made with you and your vegan consumption in mind.

5 Vegan Easter Treats You Don’t Want to Miss This Year

Easter is on the horizon, which means a waterfall of gooey, chocolatey, and dairy-filled goodness awaits you. However, we’re here to show you that Easter doesn’t necessarily have to be defined by the butter, creams, and milks that go into Easter desserts. Vegan alternatives are just as delightful – and better for you, too.

Here are 5 vegan Easter treats you won’t want to miss this year:

1.      Avocado Easter Egg: Make centerpieces out of drizzled coconut-based chocolate on top of an avocado. When pulled out of their skins, avocados are surprisingly egg-shaped.
2.      Acai Mini Cheesecakes: Thanks to the combo of cashews, lemon juice, and dates, you can make mini cheesecakes with fun spring colors. Top it off with some lemon zest.
3.      No-Bake Cake Pops: Medjool dates are blended with almond and coconut flour to create rich little velvet cheesecake bites that are out of this world. Red velvet is kind of mandatory for Easter, right?
4.      Strawberry Shortcake Crisp: Serve mini shortcake cups to your guests this Easter.
5.      No Whey Easter Chocolate: If you’re not in the mood to cook this year, buy pre-made vegan chocolate with our No Whey Easter chocolate selections today.
