Vegan Goodies

Like Mandee from Cupcake Kitteh, I recently visited the new Cruelty Free Shop on Glebe Point Road in Glebe (Sydney) and picked up some vegan goodies.

It is so exciting (and slightly dangerous) to go into a shop where I can buy anything! They have a fantastic selection of vegan food and other products and I really hope they do well and are supported by the community.

Here is our loot:

Soy chocolate milk for Sylvia, plain soy yogurt, cookies and cream ice cream made with coconut milk, white choc chips, chocolate bar, lip gloss and peanut butter cups (empty packet!)
We didn't quite manage to photograph everything before we ate it...
Empty packet of vegan ham
We also bought some raspberry jelly crystals, which I forgot to take a picture of. Sylvia had been asking for jelly for ages because a character in one of the stories we read eats a "big bowl of strawberries and red jelly". Funnily enough, she wasn't at all interested in trying it (maybe I overdid the excitement), but it didn't go to waste!

The ice cream made with coconut milk was divine. I like that it is soy free and doesn't have any nasty artificial things in there.

I was surprised at how much I liked the "ham" as I'm not normally one for the fake meats. It was great on sandwiches with mustard and pickles... or is that my pregnancy talking?

I used the white chocolate chips in these "Banana Everything Cookies" from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar and they were delicious.

Does anyone have other ideas on how to use white chocolate chips?


  1. How awesome are the Hurraw lip balms?! I picked up a couple of them at the Green Edge in Brisbane and I am obsessed.

  2. Hi Cindy, yeah they are great - I hadn't seen them before! By the way, I love reading your blog. I have cooked so many of your recipes and they are always amazing, especially the vegan sausage rolls!

  3. I like using white chocolate in a cream cheese frosting but I have also see it used in scones instead of some of the butter - - it is something I have been meaning to try

    1. Thanks Johanna, sounds interesting. I will check it out :)

  4. Wow, you're putting your goodies to great use! So far all I've done with my CFS haul is eat the marshmallows straight from the pack...

  5. White choc and passionfruit cheezcake!

    1. Sounds delicious - do you have a recipe?
