    Default Vegans! What is your favorite...

    What are your favorite everyday vegan friendly things?
    It can be cosmetics, house hold cleaning, food, baby products, a company where you buy clothes, recipe books, homemade things or even a charity.

    I'm still fairly new to the world of vegan.
    I'm still learning plenty of things, and going through the notions of changing every day products or looking for homemade ways.
    I'm always on the lookout for vegan friendly alternatives so throw your go-to vegan favorites at me

    This recipe is AMAZING!!!

    Chocolate, Coconut Cupcakes

    Ingredients:

    1 cup coconut milk
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/3 cup canola oil
    1 1/2 t. cider vinegar
    1 t. vanilla extract
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1/3 cup cocoa powder
    3/4 t. baking soda
    1/2 t. baking powder
    1/4 t. salt
    Preparation:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with cupcake liners and set aside.

    2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the coconut milk, sugar, canola oil, vinegar, and vanilla. In another bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and salt until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just combined. Pour the batter into the prepared cups, filling each about 2/3 full. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake emerges clean. Let cool completely on a wire cooling rack before frosting with dairy-free frosting of choice.

    Whipped Chocolate Glaze
    6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped (use dairy-free to keep vegan)
    1/2 cup coconut milk (or heavy cream, for non-vegans)

    Place chopped chocolate into a mixing bowl. Set aside.

    On medium-high heat, bring coconut milk to a boil, stirring occasionally to prevent the milk from scorching. Pour milk over the chocolate, making sure that the milk covers the chocolate. Allow to sit for several minutes before stirring until smooth. Allow frosting to rest on the counter until it cools down and thickens to a pipe-able consistency (anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes).

    Beat the frosting for several minutes until it incorporates air and feels lighter. Place frosting in a pastry bag (or plastic bag with the corner cut out) and pipe frosting onto the cooled cupcakes.

    I am not a vegan, am in love with 2 vegan-friendly skincare products - Yuva's Antioxidant Hydrating Cream and Super Cleanse. It's seriously amazing... I am addicted!

    Aroma baby have beautiful baby products and some of their products are vegan, it states which ones are on their website.
    Good old Nuttelex is a good substitute fpr butter/margerine and you can get it at pretty much any supermarket.
    There's so many products at aldi that sre vegan and they state it on the packet. They have a bread similar to helgas that is vegan and really nice.

    I like Wild Morsels. It's an Australia vegan cookbook. I think it's actually sold under a different name these days but it has some yummy recipes and the ingredients are all easy to find.

    I agree with pp about Frys too. They are quite nice for the occassional night of processed rubbish.
    Sanitarium hotdogs are pretty good too.
