24 Dec 25 DAYS OF DECEMBER – DAY 24 VEGAN COOKIES AND MILK TO LEAVE FOR SANTA
As a child, I remember leaving cookies or a mince pie out for Santa with a glass of milk and a carrot for Rudolph.
We thought we would give you a run down of some of the tasty plant based milks available that Santa might enjoy this year.
Our number one staff favourite is Oatly barista; it’s no longer acceptable to put anything other than that into our staff fridge.
Not only is it possibly the thickest and creamiest of the plant based milks but it also has another amazing trick up its sleeve, it doesn’t separate in coffee or tea!
And unlike some of the other options available it also tastes good straight from the carton. Oatly also do other varieties including an organic, original and chocolate. They recently released 3 new ones that are made to mimic milk in the sense that they have a skimmed, semi, and whole version.
There are other good options on the market beside Oatly, for example, cashew and hazelnut milk are particularly delicious for making hot chocolate!
Almond milk has a subtle nutty taste that goes nicely on cereal and good old soy milk is my personal favourite for baking cakes, pancakes and Yorkshire puddings.
Now let’s talk cookies
We have a variety of cookies here at Arjuna!
We have some with a raspberry filling by Biona that are organic, and we also have delicious individually wrapped vegan cookies by Kookie Kat.
If Santa has told you he has a gluten intolerance then we have varieties by Doves Farm that come in ginger, lemon and chocolate and are good for dunking.
But if you want a ‘real’ cookie then I’d suggest going for out Fair Trade cookies that come in the chocolate chunk and ginger flavours, both of these are what we like to call ‘accidentally vegan’.
This means they’re not labelled as vegan but contain no animal by-products, and they are a super yummy crumbly chunky cookie!
