👩🏻🍳 Recipe FAQs
I find that coconut milk is often the best milk substitute when I make vegan desserts. It still produces a rich, creamy texture often found in many dairy-based desserts and offers a delicious, nutty flavor.
Coconut oil, olive oil, applesauce, and even avocado can all be good substitutes for butter depending on the recipe. For example, coconut oil and olive oil are higher in fat content which works well in cakes and pastries to replace the fat found in butter. Avocado is naturally creamy and is a great butter substitute for something like chocolate mousse.
In many cases, dark chocolate is vegan, assuming it contains no ingredients like milk or other animal-derived products. In addition, chocolates made with dairy-free types of milk can also be vegan. Generally, the higher the cacao content (say above 60%), the more likely the chocolate is to be vegan, but it's best to always check the label.
Milk chocolate is usually not vegan unless it is made with coconut milk or another plant-based variety. Whereas white chocolate is not vegan.
