Vegusto

One of the main things a lot of new vegans struggle with is missing cheese; as a life long vegetarian, cheese was a staple ingredient in most of my meals so cutting it out required a big adjustment in my diet, one I was more than happy to make, but a big one nonetheless. In my first few months of being vegan, I tried a couple of cheese alternatives but none came close to the real thing so I decided to give up looking. However, when I visited the USA this summer I tried Daiya cheese and have been majorly craving it ever since. In a moment of desperation I even emailed Daiya to see if they would send some to the UK; shockingly, they politely declined. I therefore decided to restart my quest for a good non-dairy cheese and stumbled upon the Vegusto website. I could not be happier about finding this little gem, as their cheese is amazing and I have now become a regular customer!

Aside from their award winning cheese, Vegusto stocks a range of vegan products that use 100% natural, sustainable and healthy ingredients. The first thing I tried from Vegusto was the No-Moo Melty cheese. I am absolutely in love with it, as not only does it make a great bagel filler, it is also the perfect pizza topping. Check out my Superfood tortilla base pizza recipe for a healthy and fun idea of how to make use of this yummy cheese ▼▽▼▽▼

After falling in love with Vegusto cheese, my boyfriend ordered me a few surprises from their website including the delicious biona organic chocolate spread and a dairy-free advent calendar. I am a huge fan of the chocolate spread as it is the perfect topper for pretty much anything: wholegrain toast, biscuits, sliced banana. You name it, I’ll smother it in chocolate spread and eat it.

As far as the vegan advent calendar goes, I am SO excited to get started on this bad boy. Bring on December ▼▽▼▽▼

If you’re looking for a cruelty-free alternative to some of your favourite meals without compromising on taste, I’d highly recommend you head on over to the Vegusto website. They have so many more foods I am looking forward to trying, so I will definitely keep you all posted. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of their products and if so which is your favourite?

    That pizza looks so good! It’s great that you found a good cheese alternative. I love Daiya, it’s too bad they do not sell it in the UK (yet 😉 ). The chocolate spread looks amazing too! BTW I love your nails in the first picture! So cute! 🙂

    It all looks amazing, although I especially think the chocolate spread looks great – I must buy some. I look forward to your future reviews on other Vegusto products 🙂

    Can totally relate to the dairy free cheese excitement! I’m in NZ and recently discovered a locally available delish raw vegan cheese; soooo satisfying.
