The best plant-based sweet treats
Not everyone has time to shop around and look for the newest items on the market that could appeal to the loved ones and colleagues on their gift-giving lists. (Or for themselves, because let’s be honest, we look at holiday gift guides and deals for ourselves just as much as for others.)
Here is a list of suggestions for the people with a sweet tooth in your life.
Forager Project recently launched an all-new line of organic, dairy-free ice cream that’s free of lactose, dairy, soy, and gluten and is certified organic and vegan. And it still tastes like the dairy-based ice cream with which most people are familiar. Flavors include Mint Chip, Vanilla Bean, Bittersweet Chocolate, Salted Caramel, and Cookies & Cream. SRP: $7 per pint
Crafted especially for people on the go, Jüve Pops are Otter Pops for adults—albeit a bit healthier, being made with real fruit and less sugar, blended with vitamins and electrolytes. SRP: $30 for 36 tubes
SorBabes is a plant-based, dairy-free, gluten-free, female-owned sorbet brand, now sold in retailers like Whole Foods, H-E-B, and Walmart. The brand recently launched all new, lower calorie sorbet bars, with flavors such as mango coconut crunch and strawberry crisp. SRP: $60 for six boxes
Launched in summer 2020, Brave Robot offers a creamy ice cream made with one-of-a-kind animal-free whey protein by Perfect Day, creating a dairy ice cream that’s made without animals. Among the most popular flavors are Blueberry Pie, Raspberry White Truffle, PB ’N Fudge, and Buttery Pecan. SRP: $58 for four containers
Southern California favorite McConnell’s recently debuted a line of ice cream pints that are oat-milk based. Flavors at launch include Chocolate Fudge & Cookies, Coffee Cookie Crumble, Cookies & Cream, Passion Fruit Lemon Swirl, Salted Caramel Chocolate Swirl, and Vanilla Bean. Currently, McConnell’s Dairy-Free line is dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, egg-free, and nut-free. (Note that McConnell’s isn’t technically vegan due to the type of sugar incorporated, but a spokesperson for the brand says that could change in the future.) SRP: $12 per pint
Here’s a sweet treat you can eat for breakfast—especially if you’re a fan of overnight oats. Now you don’t have to wait for your oats to soften up overnight (nor do you have to worry about portion control) with these cup-size, ready-to-eat oats from Mush. The line of oats with benefits is rich in flavor, plant-based, high in fiber, gluten-free certified, has four to eight grams of protein, and is naturally sweetened by dates for zero added sugar. Flavors include apple cinnamon, strawberry, dark chocolate, blueberry, coffee & coconut, and for a limited time, pumpkin pie. SRP: $40 for six containers
Shipping nationwide, Bougie Bakes produces gluten-free, sugar-free, and dairy-free cookies, brownies, and muffins with a variety of additional keto-friendly and vegan baked goods. They are made with zero preservatives and are all packaged together nicely in tin gift boxes. (And special for the fall, Bougie Bakes just released a seasonal pumpkin bakes kit for $35 that will include pumpkin flavored muffins, blondie bites, and cookies.) Bougie Bakes ships nationwide, with every order baked and shipped out the next day. Additionally, all product is packaged with reusable and recyclable tins as part of Bougie Bakes’ mission to offset 100% of its carbon emissions. SRP: $65 for 32 bakes
