Finding the right vegan substitutes can be really difficult- you end up trying a bunch of things before you actually find something great! so I thought I’d help you guys out and let you know some of the vegan substitutes I am really loving right now!
1. Earth Balance Butter
I used to love butter! I used to put it in pretty much everything and when I stopped eating dairy butter I was kind of sad because honestly I did miss it but after a bit of research and trying a few different brands I finally found Earth Balance’s non-dairy butter! It is delicious, creamy, light and amazing and most of the times I can’t even tell that it’s not dairy butter.
2. Earth Island Cheese
Again, I LOVED cheese before I went vegan. I always used to joke around and say that I could add cheese to anything and it would taste amazing. Out of everything I gave up I think cheese was the hardest for me because I liked it the most and ate waaaayyyy too much of it. I’m not going to lie and tell you this tastes just like the real thing because it doesn’t but it tastes wonderful in it’s own way. Out of all the vegan cheeses that I’ve tried (which have been A LOT) this one tastes the closest to real cheese and it also has a pretty similar texture too. It cooks really well as well. Some vegan cheese tastes a little off but since one of the main ingredients of this is potato starch it actually tastes really great and doesn’t have a weird aftertaste. I would definitely recommend trying it out if you’re looking for a cheese substitute.
3. Mother In Law’s Kimchi
I love Korean food and one of my favourites is Kimchi. However, most traditional kimchi is not vegan and therefore not all companies can make good vegan Kimchi. However, Mother In Law’s is absolutely amazing- it’s not too spicy, it tastes fermented but not too much and the jar is really big so it really lasts a while!
4. Kettle Chips
A lot of junk food isn’t vegan and a lot of potato chips have whey powder added to them. However, I love my junk food and if you’re like me try out Kettle’s vegan potato chips. They have lot’s of flavours and are amazing in taste and texture! My favourite flavours so far are Sriracha and Jalapeno.
5. Silk Milk
I love non-dairy milk but not all brands make it just right. Sometimes it can taste kind of watered down or just weird but Silk’s nondairy milk tastes absolutely amazing! It’s creamy, sweet and delicious. Definitely one of my favourite brands for nondairy milk.

KETTLE-BRAND CHIPS AND SILK—THAT’S HOW I ROLL! DISCLAIMER— THEY ARE GOOD! 🙂
Yassss they are amazing!! Thanks for the reblog 😊
So manny goodies on this list!
They’re all amazing!
These are pretty good too! http://yvesveggie.com/en/products/burgers/the-good-veggie-burger/
Yes I’ve tried their meatballs they were so good!!
They have hotdogs too that are alright. Guilt free! The only prob is that I tend to pig out on chocolates and stuff later. 😯😮
Oh no that sucks but I can understand because it’s really hard to quite chocolates they’re just so good!
Yeah they say it involves the same chemical as falling in love. So instead of a broken heart I get a distended belly! 🙂
Haha same difference I guess 😂
I think I can lose weight faster than get over a broken heart… but both possible! 🙂
I have a couple of vegan friends wanting to try out the Keto diet. I’ll have to tell them about your blog 🙂
Yes absolutely that would be amazing! Thank you so much!
Are you vegan? And if so do you feel better after changing your diet? These are great alternatives btw 🙂
Thanks and yes I am vegan and I feel much better after changing my diet. I always used to feel a little tired and weighed down and now I feel much more energetic. And my skin problems have gone away too which is nice. Are you vegan?
I’m not vegan but I’ve been considering to make the change. I think it will be relatively easy for me because I’m Egyptian and we have a lot of naturally vegan cuisine but I just haven’t took that step. Plus I need the energy because I also feel so weighed down and tired these days. Maybe I’ll do a 30 day challenge just to allow me to begin lol
Yeah maybe you can cut out stuff one by one too. When I first went vegan I just did it randomly without preparing and ended up eating dairy again but the next time I cut out stuff one by one and it went really well. Yes there is so much vegan Egyptian food it’ll be great!
Yea I think I might try it soon.. after xmas when being offered so much food and chocolate lol
Lol good call 😂
I used to think vegan was the best diet for my intolerance’s to certain foods. However, I eat more fruit, melons, eggs, bread, tuna (packaged), sorbet, oatmeal, and things of that nature. Some days I mess up and have something with soy. I can no longer go to any restaurant and eat because all things are fried or cooked in soybean oil.
Yeah I guess each person is different and different diets work for different people. I can understand because a lot of restaurants use soy now and it’s very hard to find a restaurant that caters to specific diets.
Thank you so much for this information… Now that I change my diet, this will be very helpful… thaaaaaanks!!🤗
You’re very welcome I’m so glad it will help I know it’s really tough to find good substitutes at first especially.
Yeees!! I hope that we can share more ideas 🙂
Absolutely I hope so too!
I’m moving to vegan from vegetarian, and thank you for these suggestion. No-diary products have been getting tastier thus easier to switch to.
Yeah I think once your taste buds change and get used to it you’ll like non-vegan foods much more. I really hope these products help you as much as they helped me in my transition to veganism.
Vegan substitutes – substitutes for the days when your favourite vegan is not available.
Thank you for this!! Recently decided to give up dairy and the cheese is the hardest for me too!!
I think it’s the hardest because it’s the hardest to substitute! Good luck with giving up dairy!
So while I’m not totally vegan I eat a lot of vegan foods as I too was like you with the cheese but can no longer take dairy products. I must say that changing my diet was one of the best things that I’ve done. Great post… Yes, I love Earth Balance Butter, but haven’t tried the cheese as yet.
Thank you so much! You need to try their cheese it’s so good!
I think I will give it a try as I do miss my cheese soooooo much. Dessert was another thing I was missing, but I have found some really good recipes, and some I tweak to make them to my own liking.
Yeah I feel like most things you can find pretty similar substitutes for but cheese is so difficult to substitute I was so happy to finally find a good one!
Kimchi is one I have yet to try!
You so have too it’s amazing!
That opening gif is everything. Thank you for sharing. I love this list. Well done.
Thank you so much! I really like that gif I use it all the time but it still manages to make me chuckle.
I’m starting my vegan journey tomorrow! This article has helped heaps!
That’s awesome and let me know how it goes!
