I have a serious sweet tooth, so I thought I’d never be able to follow a Plant Strong Diet because it doesn’t allow sugar. But giving up sugar was easier than I thought it would be, mostly thanks to medjool dates. Once reserved for royalty, medjool dates are so soft and sweet that they taste like caramel. I use them to sweeten everything from chocolate pudding to hot chocolate.
As wonderful as date-sweetened desserts are, there are times when I still eat regular ol’ sugar. I try not to do this often, but it’s an indulgence I allow myself for holidays. That being said, Easter is fast approaching so bring on the candy!
Here’s my vegan Easter candy round up:
Rice Crisp Bunny & Chocolate Eggs
This adorable vegan chocolate bunny speckled with rice crisps and flavored solid chocolate eggs makes a delightful vegan Easter gift. From Allison’s Gourmet.
Veeps – Vegan Peeps
Spring Organic Vegan Dark Chocolates
If you want to ignite a Spring romance, this box of chocolates from Eco3P might just do the trick.
Box of Chocolate Bunnies
Give your loved ones healthy Easter treats with Organic & Fair Trade chocolate from Mama Ganache! They have a great selection of Easter goodies like these delicious handmade Bunnies.
Get your vegan jelly beans from Vegan Sweets. And if you’re giving them to a grown up, why not fill a martini glass instead of a basket.
Easter Eggs Gift Box
Celebrate Easter with a gift box of fairly traded and organic egg-shaped chocolates! Be sure to get the dark chocolate ones that are not only vegan, but also soy and gluten-free. From Equal Exchange.
Mikey the Magical Milkless Bunny
I love the fun collection of chocolate bunnies from Premium Chocolatiers like Mikey the Magical Milkless Bunny and Vincent Van Vegan Painter Bunny. I also read on Go Dairy Free that these chocolates are especially tasty.
Organic Hazelnut Chocolate Easter Egg
This milk chocolate tasting dairy free Easter egg has infused pieces of caramelized hazelnut in the shell. Sounds delish! It’s manufactured by MooFree in the UK.
