Vegan substitutes for desser

When it comes to dessert, there is nothing incompatible about the words ‘decadent’ and ‘vegan’. The fact of the matter is that you can still indulge in your old favorites, as long as you know what vegan substitutions to make while recreating them as cruelty-free versions. It may be a bit intimidating at first, but it’s really just as easy as switching to a different brand of shampoo simply because your old brand doesn’t make your hair look healthy anymore.

Soy flour (and liquid) is one of my favorite egg replacers. Another is soy yoghurt. I often combine two egg replacers, e.g. soy flour and bananas is great for cookies (produces much better results than eggs!). Or I might use soy yoghurt and commercial egg replacer for a cake. Erythritol is supposed to be less laxative than Xylitol and similar (or more sugar-like) in taste. I haven't tried it myself. Cashew cream is the best replacement for creams etc. Just blend cashew nuts with water, it's really that easy. Makes the most delicious ice cream too. Coconut oil can be used to replace butter and margarine. In a lot of baking even a liquid oil can be used. Some people add a tiny sprinkle of orange blossom water to agave syrup to make it more honey-like.

Love this! We're a small vegan ice cream company (Phro*Zen) and we use soy milk to create our vegan ice cream. We couldn't be happier with the result! We worked really hard to figure out the right recipe to get it creamy and smooth, but it's true - vegan can be decadent!

One other thing: I don't suppose this is actually a subsitution per se, since most sorbet is already vegan. However, this is my favorite, hands-down, easy summer dessert. I learned the gist of this recipe from Mark Bittman's Minimalist column in the NY Times, and I simply veganized it. It's truly amazing. One package of frozen cherries (you can use any frozen, organic fruit, but trust me, cherries are best), about a quarter cup of sugar (or, to taste), about 3/4 cup coconut milk based yogurt, preferably vanilla, and some cold water (to blend). Place cherries, yogurt and sugar in food processor; pulse. Add water slowly through the top until it starts to mix. Food process until it's smooth...but don't overdo it. Serve immediately.

Mashed bananas work well as an egg replacer in sweet breads and pancakes. I use 1/2 a medium banana per egg.

A relatively new non-dairy milk substitute is coconut milk beverage. Favorite brand is So Delicious. I use their coconut milk creamer in mashed potatoes, on cereal and whenever a recipe calls for cream. Also, organic sugar such as the Florida Crystals brand works nicely, and it's vegan.

I am also a HUGE fan of the coconut milk based beverages in lieu of dairy/soy/nut milks. The creamer is even fat-free (per serving)---and it really is delicious. The subtle flavor of coconut is compatible with just about everything. The So Delicious brand is also free of palm oil, which is problematic because of the habitat destruction it causes.

Trial and errror is the best method. Sometimes, instead of an egg, a recipe might need a little extra baking powder, or some blended soft silken tofu. Also, try to just leave the eggs out to see how it turns out. The cool thing is that even if it doesn't turn out the way you want, it will probably still be yummy. BTW, non-vegan marshmallows are made with gelatin, not egg white.
