From grown-up jelly to chocolate houmous, these plant-based puds should keep sweet-toothed vegans satisfied this January
Jelly is no longer just for kids. Thanks to startup Wibble, it’s now for grown-ups too – and vegan ones at that. Featuring Orange & Ginger, Strawberry & Vanilla and Raspberry & Coconut flavours, the range launched for pre-order online at the start of December and will officially launch in the new year (rsp: £10/6x150g). Each 150g pot contains at least 45% pressed fruit juice and less than 35 calories, with 6g of sugar and no artificial additives.
The team behind The Chia Co has launched a pair of plant-based desserts under a new brand, called Fancy Plants. The chilled pots landed in selected Tesco stores in December in Chia Parfait and Silky Pot variants. Chia Parfait comes in Red Berry and Mango & Passion Fruit flavours (rsp: £1.80/120g), while Silky Pot offers Chocolate and Chocolate Salted Caramel flavours (rsp: £2/2x80g).
Marking the yoghurt brand’s first foray into the vegan category, The Collective will launch a range of plant-based yoghurt alternatives in January. The brand has chosen a blend of oats, coconut and rice to best replicate the thickness of Greek-style yoghurt. Launching across the mults, the lineup will feature Natural, Raspberry, Passion Fruit and Fudge flavours in 400g and 135g pot sizes (rsp: £2.20 and £1.25 respectively).
Moorish Chocolate Spread
You’ve tried houmous. You’re familiar with chocolate spread. Now what about tucking in to a combination of both? This ‘dessert houmous’ from Moorish – which is made with a blend of chickpeas, coconut milk, sesame seed paste, cocoa powder and pomegranate molasses – will debut in Sainsbury’s in January (rsp: £1.80/150g).
Wholey smoothie bowls
Founded in Berlin in 2016 and popular throughout Germany and Austria, startup Wholey will debut in the UK from 15 January. It offers a range of frozen smoothie bowls in Ocean, Açaí, Tropical and Dragon Fruit flavours, which are all plant-based and organic (rsp: £3.69). The mixtures are simply blended with a splash of water to create a quick breakfast or fresh, fruity pudding.
