Vegan chocolate - what does it mean?
Chocolate – like a whole lot of other foods nowadays – can be made vegan. Unlike traditional one, this one does not contain animal but plant milk, e.g. soy or almond. Many of these sweets are also made without the use of eggs or honey. Instead, other ingredients are used, suitable for people who avoid meat and food derived from animals in their diet.
Most often, these are cocoa beans and butter as well as sugar, the properties of which make sweets dedicated to vegans taste similar to those in the traditional form. Remember that you will learn more about them from the information on their packaging, so it is good to get acquainted with it before buying a given sweet. Individual producers of vegan chocolates usually obtain them from the right ingredients, but sometimes they decide to further enhance their taste. Therefore, some of them use unhealthy ingredients for this purpose.
Vegan chocolate - how is it produced?
Vegan chocolate is a product that nowadays can not only be easily bought but also made at home. In fact, all you need to do is get the right ingredients and follow the simple instructions. So, once you've managed to gather your cocoa powder, coconut oil, maple syrup (or other sweetener), vanilla extract, and sea salt, you should follow these steps:
- Dissolve half a cup of coconut oil in hot water, then pour it into a small bowl.
- Add twice as much cocoa powder and mix everything thoroughly.
- Use maple syrup (a quarter of a cup) and vanilla extract (half a teaspoon) and carefully combine all ingredients again.
- Finally, season the mass with a pinch of sea salt and place the container filled with it in the fridge for about half an hour. This should be enough for the chocolate to harden properly and be ready to consume.
Tasty flavours of HiP chocolates
When it turns out that you don't have the time or the ability to prepare vegan chocolate for your guests or clients, you can easily buy it both in physical shops and online. It is worth doing, if only because of the variety of flavours the product is available in. Sweets reminiscent of milk porridge combined with salty pretzels enjoy huge popularity. Vegans also like to choose blueberry-raspberry chocolate with rice flakes. Many of them also appreciate the crunchiness and exceptionally good taste of sweets similar to oatmeal, salt, and honey. However, these are only some of the suggestions as new flavours are constantly being created. It is worth it to try them personally, and also allow others to do so.
Other sweets for vegans
As we mentioned at the beginning, vegan chocolate is just one of the many types of sweets that do not contain meat, eggs or milk from animals. The best proof of this is the offer of the MR LEMONADE shop. You will find there, for example, crisps in various flavours, made from ingredients such as beetroot, parsnip, or sweet potatoes. In addition, they do not contain any taste enhancers and, above all, ingredients unsuitable for vegans.

They work very well in a grilled form, as an addition to alcohol or as an element of a sandwich.
