85 Vegan Snacking Innovations

From Tea-Flavored Cheesecakes to Soy-Based Yogurt Cups

— February 1, 2016 — Lifestyle
These vegan snacking innovations range from soy-based yogurt cups to tea-flavored cheesecake recipes. The later replaces a classic creme cheese filling with a dairy-free alternative and lets those with a sweet tooth indulge without the added guilt.

In addition to animal lovers that follow a vegan lifestyle, an increasing number of consumers are embracing this popular diet for health reasons. Whether aiding in the weight loss process or acting as a detox program, a meatless and diary-free lifestyle is made easier with these delicious food products.

Some vegan snacking standouts include coconut-based jerky snacks that taste as good as the real thing along with overloaded vegan pizzas that are entirely plant-based. Other favorites include a range of nut-based cheese products and dairy-free mac and cheese bowls that are surprisingly healthy.
