The Replacements: Christmas Edition

How many Vegans does it take to change a lightbulb?
Two. One to change the lightbulb and one to check for animal ingredients.
Ok, I'm bad at intros.
Anyway, here we go.

Party-Sized Vegan Eggnog
This one's an obvious Holiday staple. Although I don't usually like Eggnog, I actually really liked this recipe.

  • 8 cups Soy milk
  • 2 tbsp Vanilla Pudding Powder
  • 2 cups of Vegan Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Whisk together half soy milk &pudding mix. Add the rest of the soy milk. Add rest of ingredients then chill overnight.

Yields roughly 10 cups
You can go buy some Vegan Eggnog from the store and avoid all this work.
Available at local Health Food Stores

Vegan Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Men
I didn't make this. Mine came out much uglier.
(Or women... we're still feminists here.)

  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 flax egg (which I've never used so no guarantees)
  • 1/4 cup Almond Butter
  • 1 1/2 cup Vegan Baking Mix
  • 1/4 tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp Ginger
  • 1/4 cup Vegan Butter
  • 3 tbsp Molasses
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Vegan Chocolate Chips
Add ingredients together and chill overnight. Prep oven to 350 and cut out Gingerbread shape. Bake for 7-9 minutes. 
Yields 20-30 Gingerbread Men.

Check the box for Red 40.
 Peppermint Hot Chocolate
 This one requires zero effort.

  •  1 packet Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate (Double Chocolate)- another one that's accidentally Vegan
  •  1 Candy Cane
  •  Soy Whipped Cream

Always Remember.
Animals are friends, not food.
