Vegan Easter Dessert Recipes for a Sweet Meatless Monday

Welcome to the Miratel blog for another Meatless Monday vegan recipe share. The Meatless Monday pledge aims to reduce meat consumption 15% by eliminating it one day per week to preserve personal and planetary health. Miratel has taken the pledge to support this great initiative, which we have included as part of our CSR business strategies to spread awareness of the impact of food choices on our environment.

It might seem difficult to be vegan and celebrate a holiday like Easter with all those sweets and chocolates but it doesn’t have to be. Today’s recipes for vegan Cadbury Easter Crème Eggs, Carrot Cake with Walnuts and Cream Cheese Frosting and Mona de Pascua (Spanish Easter Cake) prove that point. Thanks to One Green Planet for all of these great recipes. Now, let’s satisfy that sweet tooth vegan-style.

  • semi-sweet chocolate chips
