No dairy? No problem! With Easter just around the corner, we’ve been busy tasting some of the best vegan varieties out there.
Let’s face it, the Easter egg aisle of the supermarket is usually fairly restrictive if you’re vegan. This year however, you might just be surprised by the amount of quality vegan options available. From decadent truffles to crunchy honeycomb treats, we’ve rounded up 7 dairy-free Easter eggs to crack into this Easter.
Remember, whilst indulging in a square or two can be a nice treat from time to time, just because something is deemed to be vegan, it doesn’t make it healthy. We’d advise you to check nutritional info if you’re tying to keep calories down…
1. Almond and sea salt caramel chocolate truffles (£24.99) by Booja Booja
These chocolate truffles are the real deal – not only are they indulgently rich but to be honest, they taste better than many milk-based truffles out there. You’d never know that they’re vegan, dairy, gluten and soya- free!
2. Original egg by (£9) Goupie
Available in two flavours, Goupie eggs really are delicious plus not only are they dairy- free, the packaging is also 100% recyclable – so it’s a win-win situation if you fancy treating yourself this Easter but also want to reduce your plastic waste.
3. Absolute Black: 100% Cocoa Button Egg (£9.99) by Montezuma’s
This egg is not for the faint hearted. Made from 100% cocoa solids, it certainly tastes free from dairy but if you do enjoy a rich dark chocolate, Montezuma’s vegan-friendly option might just be the one for you.
4. Strawberry and white choc egg (£3.50) by Sainsbury’s
5. 100% Totally Dark Sugar-Free Easter Egg (£18.50) by Chococo
This 100% cocoa solid egg may be on the higher-end of the price scale but each egg is carefully created by hand in Dorset and looks great if you’re after a gift. Plus, you might be surprised to know, it’s also high in fibre.
6. Easter Organic cheeky orange easter egg (£4.00) by Moo Free
Calling all the Terry’s Chocolate Orange fans…this delicious, vegan Easter egg has been infused with orange oil to give it that zesty orange flavour.
7. Free From Choc honeycomb egg (£5.99) by Buttermilk, available at Sainsbury’s
This vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free chocolate egg mimics milk chocolate really well. Plus, it’s filled with little nuggets of honeycomb which is adds a nice bit of crunch.
