Vegan whipped cream substitutes – all made from scratch at home! If you’re vegan or can’t eat dairy – like me – you don’t have to buy vegan whipped cream substitutes: They’re usually full of additives and don’t taste very well.
A while ago I published 5+ Dairy-Free Whipped Cream Substitutes. But now I found three vegan whipped cream substitutes! Yay! Making vegan whipped cream substitutes from scratch is easy and cheap – and they’re delicious!
But this time I also had buttercream frosting leftover. So I came up with this delicious vanilla no-bake Swiss roll. This no-back Swiss roll is easy and fast to make if you have unexpected guests coming over!
German nougat – also called viennese nougat or gianduja – is made with three ingredients: hazelnuts or almonds, chocolate and sugar. While store-bought nougat contains dairy – this homemade German nougat is dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free and vegan!
German nougat is so delicious – it’s used as baking ingredient, as cake or praline filling, for ice creams and desserts or eaten as it is. I always wanted to make German nougat at home – especially since I can’t eat dairy (and therefore store-bought nougat) anymore. However, all recipes that I tried produced more a chocolate spread – not real German nougat!
But, finally, after years of research and trial and error I found an old recipe for traditional homemade German nougat. Yay! I adapted the recipe slightly because the nougat was made with too much chocolate. I’m so pleased with the recipe: This homemade German nougat is even better than store-bought German nougat! I never thought that it’d be so easy to make German nougat from scratch at home.
