I’ve just thought it would be a great time to try out a plant-based or dairy-free version of the Cherry Ripe chocolate bar & fortunately, that wish has been realised today thanks to Muscle Nation after I bought one today at my local Coles store.

I might be a bit irked when the coconut flakes may have fallen everywhere but I understand that’s part of the presentation of the final piece. However, I do love how they made the a mix of the gooey cherry jam and the custard filling all on the inside together that makes this dairy-free/plant-based “cherry ripe” chocolate bar so great. I would have it most days of the week during my morning snack, even though it may be a bit pricey compared to the usual cherry ripe chocolate bar. 

Plus, it’s a protein bar even though it’s dairy-free and plant based, which is good for people like me and for those who are on a diet or need to use it to support their training/exercise program. So for kids, you can’t eat it until you’re 15 since it’s not your typical regular snack & for women who are currently pregnant, please consult your physician/doctor before trying this out. But again, I’ll see if there’s any way I can make a dairy free cherry ripe bar that is good to eat at home as a regular snack next time. For now, it’s on special only for a limited time at $3.60 & you can buy it at your local Coles store.

And finally, thanks to Muscle Nation for showcasing a dairy-free/plant-based/vegan “cherry ripe” chocolate. I do wish though that you can make a dairy-free/plant-based/vegan birthday cake bar too.

I found an amazing way that you can enjoy eating corn fritters that is not only dairy free but also egg free with the replacement of the vegan scrambled egg mix at home.

All you have to do is grab your small bowl out by adding some salt alongside a tablespoon of the vegan egg mix, two tablespoons or flour & 2-3 tablespoons of creamed corn or corn purée by mixing them up for 1-2 minutes.

Then coat some oil on a pan with low-medium heat by splitting a few pieces there by using a silicone spatula. Wait 2 minutes first before you turn the other side with a wooden spatula by letting it cook the other side for the other two minutes before it’s all golden brown & ready to eat!! It’s not just so easy to make but also delicious too that is great for snacks alongside some tomato sauce as well as those who seek a meat free/vegan diet.

See it for yourself when you can try your very own dairy free and egg free corn fritters at home!!

Here’s another dairy-free snack or topping you should try at home which is the Bio Cheese Cheedar flavour slices that I’ve brought off my local supermarket at Woolworths yesterday. Although it doesn’t have a health star rating, but it’s still healthy to eat with plenty of benefits being shown there. I’ve shredded one slice across two small pizzas earlier today during lunch and they taste really good, especially when it’s so perfect for those who are on a meat-free/vegan diet.

I could’ve also brought the ready-made shredded version as far I’m aware of, but you pair up see the dairy-free sliced pack beyond pizzas such as burgers/wraps/sandwiches, as well as biscuits, pasta, garlic bread & many more of your choice.

In terms of price, it can be a bit expensive at around the $6 mark but it’s still worth the weekly eating budget when looking to keep healthy or stay away from dairy. See it for yourself & make dairy-free cheese your own regular lunch or snack craving.

Here’s some Greek Style yoghurt you can try for your next morning or afternoon tea craving thanks to Vitasoy, which contains with a hint of strawberry alongside a good source of calcium & protein.

They tasted really good as it’s really healthy to eat on the inside while they’re thick & creamy with so much natural pink flavour on the outside. Speaking of healthiness, it has a decent rating of 4.5 out of 5 too!! You can’t go wrong with this type of dairy-free & vegan yoghurt that can help you get on with your day ahead!!

It’s available to buy for only $2.70 (140g range) at your local Woolworths supermarket.

I had the chance to taste a different style of chips off when they arrived straight to my door from Amazon yesterday afternoon. Not only they’re healthy considering the natural flavour & layout on the outside, but these chips also taste better with some pinches of sea salt on the inside which is a really cool snack to crave sometime during the day. 

The best part about it that they’re vegan, naturally cooked in sunflower oil, gluten-free, kosher & also locally owned here in New South Wales. And you can even try it with free delivery included on your first Amazon order here, as they may not be available on the major supermarket shelves but perfect to add for your next recurring or regular order with them online. Although, you can continue enjoying the free delivery benefits there as long as you buy a couple of items including this healthy snack if you can over the $39 threshold.

Here’s an amazing diary-free & vegan chocolate spread that I’ve tasted earlier today thanks to the Sweet William brand.

They are perfect for sandwiches, fruits, pancakes, desserts & snacks – especially when preparing a healthy kids diet for breakfast, recess and/or lunch. However, my preferred topping belongs on cakes & even donuts which works really well alongside these colourful 100s & 1000s sprinkles from Dollar Sweets (190g pack).

I just wished they can make a different dairy free chocolate spread but in white vanilla flavour & not only that, I can play around some food colouring as well to reflect a different icing of cake/donuts other than chocolate. But still, it’s a nice chocolate spread to have that you can put on almost everything while they’re safe to eat away from dairy, eggs & nuts.

Although they’re out of stock on Amazon right now with no restocking date being finalised at this stage, but there’s still some units available to try here on eBay.

Not only it’s thick and creamy but it’s also safe to eat since they’re free from dairy and lactose while maintaining the natural & healthy value of this product. 

It’s a perfect pairing for your morning or afternoon tea break alongside some cookies, biscuits or cakes. See it for yourself as you can buy it in multiple sizes including the 150g variant I’ve just tasted for just $2.50 over at your local grocery store, such as Coles & Woolworths.

If you want to taste mayo that is vegan, dairy free & even onion free, then you’re going to love this creamy sauce thanks to Celebrate Health.

They are a great match for burgers/sandwiches/wraps as well as chips and salads, especially when this kind of vegan mayo is mixed up with lemon which makes it an ideal healthy topping for your perfect side dish. And Here’s a picture below of my homemade air-fryer chips during lunch today on top of some dairy-free mayo. 

Make sure you shake it well before use so you don’t spill out some beautiful mayo sauce. Plus, always store in the refrigerator once it’s opened & eventually finish consuming this product before the expiry date as labeled on the packaging.

I hope you loved it as much as I do & although they’re a bit more expensive, but it’s well worth your health during your morning, lunch or afternoon snack. You can go buy them for $6.30 at Woolworths, $5 at Coles & also various health shops online (be mindful that these shops cover some extra delivery costs as well).

You’ve got to try two amazing plant-based chicken ranges from Birds Eye, such as the plant-based chicken style tenders & chicken strips.

Not only they have a decent health star rating of 3.5 (tenders) – 4.5 (strips) out of five, but it has no artificial colours or flavours. Plus, they’re high in protein which is perfect for meat free Mondays during any day or night of the week, as well as those who rely on a vegan diet.

The plant-based chicken strips ain’t bad when I had the chance other day during dinner, which is great for pairing salads, noodles, pasta & rice alongside various vegetables & sauces. But for me, the plant-based chicken style tenders taste better when it comes to the delicious crumbs & the meat-free variety in it.

These meat-free tenders are even a better combination when making healthy sandwiches/burgers (here’s a picture alongside a few Mini Potato Cakes that I’ve covered last week here).

Make sure you cook them beforehand as per instructions regardless of your choice of cooking appliance, since these packages come in frozen. And you can select whichever Birds Eye plant-based chicken range you like that is available in stock right now for $6.50 at your local Coles supermarket here.
