Lemon Meringue Pie
Short pastry, sharp lemon filling and fluffy, sweet meringue. YUM. Is there anything better than a lemon meringue pie? It's easier to create a vegan version than you might think. Take a look at the recipe here!
Very Berry Cupcakes
This cupcake recipe is simple but effective, and mostly used direct replacements for any animal-derived products. Think Vegan marg instead of butter, and oil instead of egg. The best bit - you can always adapt the flavours to your taste! We've found that lime and white chocolate works rather well... See the recipe here.
Chocolate Rice Crispies with Almond Caramel
Chocolate doesn't have to contain milk to be delicious - trust us! These treats are simple enough to make with the kids, but the texture and the almond caramel really does make them into a decadent treat. Easy peasy! See the recipe here.
Chocolate, Mango and Citrus Superfood Cupcakes
It's fair to say that these aren't cupcakes in the truest sense of the word - think of them more as a delicious cheesecake and you're more on the right track.
