You vegan? You vegan! It’s time to stop worrying about dairy. We have vegan substitutes for you, my plant-based friend. In this article, we’re going to cover 5 vegan dairy substitutes and why they’ll make your vegan life so much easier.
This is one of the easiest replacements you will have while ditching dairy. Vegan butter can be found at most large supermarkets. Just head on down the margarine aisle and you will find plenty to choose from. The biggest difference comes when baking with vegan butter. You need to be a little more careful about your choices here and make sure you find vegan butter designed for that purpose.

There are so many egg replacements for baking vegan goodies. The vegan egg replacement that I’m a big fan of would have to be flax meal. The trick is to mix one tablespoon of ground flax meal with three tablespoons water, and then whisk together until lump-free.
Literally so many options for you with vegan yoghurt. There are coconut, almond, and soy yoghurts available at most supermarkets. The vegan yogurt that I’m a big fan of would have to be coconut milk yoghurt. They are very good these days, where you cannot taste even the slightest hint of coconut.
Our Pick for vegan yoghurt: Nakula Coconut Yogurt Natural.
Vegan cheeses are on the up and up these days, and it ranges from some good low price options all the way through to some more expensive vegan cheeses, that are quite artisan. You can get cheddars, mozzarella, cheese sauce, halloumi, feta, and many more.

When vegan milk first became more widely available, they were very thin and watery. These days you can expect to find a vegan option at most supermarkets that will be thick, creamy and sometimes even come in chocolate flavour!
