There are so many things to love about Easter! From the daffodils blooming, to Spring time approaching, but most importantly, the delicious Easter treats!
Good news if you’re vegan or gluten-free because you can still have an egg-cellent Easter thanks to all the gorgeous dairy-free goodies now available. You can buy vegan Easter eggs in store, or whip up your own vegan Easter desserts using our scrumptious Nākd recipes! Not sure where to start? Here’s our list of some of the best Easter foods to enjoy!
We have to kick off this list with the staple of Easter – the chocolate egg! You can get Easter eggs in all shapes and sizes to suit everyone’s palates. From decadent, dark chocolate eggs, perfect for the adults, to character themed eggs perfect for the kids!
Luckily for vegans everywhere, plant based alternatives are becoming widely available so you can easily grab a vegan Easter egg off the shelf. You can even get dairy and gluten-free Easter eggs so that everyone can get a taste of the Easter magic! Just like all our Nākd products, vegan snacks can be dairy and gluten-free whilst remaining absolutely delicious!
If you think Easter eggs were sooo last year, then why not go for something a little different and treat yourself to a vegan chocolate bunny. They come in all sizes from giant chocolate bunnies for the real chocolate lovers out there, to smaller bite size snacks, perfect for adding to the Easter Egg hunt.
If that wasn’t enough chocolatey goodness then you’ll love our Nākd Chocolish bars that can fit perfectly in an Easter basket!
There is no better way to start Easter morning than with a glorious vegan hot cross bun. Made with a gorgeous plant-based milk, these sticky warm buns are packed full of rich fruits and delicious spices for the ultimate morning treat. Serve with a lovely cup of tea or coffee and you’ll be ready for the fun day ahead!
Don’t fancy a whole Easter egg to snack on? No worries at all because the delicious mini eggs we all know and love now come in vegan alternatives. That’s right, if you love chocolate but are on a plant-based diet then these little chocolatey gems are perfect for you! They’re also great for sharing with the family, but we can understand if you don’t want to!
Do you have guests visiting for Easter? Then why not treat them to homemade cupcakes! There are so many Easter designs you can do from cute chick cupcakes, to little eggs or bunny ears. You don’t have to look far for an easy recipe because our delicious Bunny in the Bush Gluten-Free Cupcakes are sure to wow your friends and family! Good news: they are gluten and dairy-free cupcakes so everyone can enjoy them.
A Simnel Cake is a staple of the British Easter table. It consists of a fruit cake topped with marzipan that packs a gorgeous almond taste that everyone is sure to love! It’s then finished off with often extravagant designs like golden eggs. If you are making a vegan Simnel Cake yourself then feel free to go wild with the design. After all, Easter only comes about once a year so why not pull out all the stops?
Nothing screams the holidays more than a gorgeous batch of fresh cookies, and vegan Easter cookies are no exception! You can make your own cookies and then decorate them with Easter patterns – an egg shaped cookie cutter is an absolute must! Or, you could go down the route of using festive ingredients. For example, if you have any mini eggs lying around then you can add them to your cookie mixture instead of chocolate chips. Yum!
Last but not least, you can’t celebrate Easter without a good, old fashioned Easter Egg Hunt! But, you don’t have to only use eggs, feel free to use up whatever snacks you have lying around! You can even turn it into a point system using some of our Easter treats from this article. For example, one point for a mini egg, two points for a chocolate bunny and 3 points for a chocolate egg. Then the most points wins! Hopefully it won’t become too competitive…
There we have it! 8 vegan Easter treats for you to go hopping mad for this year! Whether you’re buying your Easter chocolate in store, or having a go at whipping up a batch of cookies or cupcakes, one thing is for sure – you are going to have an egg-ceptional time!
