21. Vegan Jalapeno Poppers

Vegan Jalapeno Poppers

If you’ve ever had a jalapeño popper, you know they make you feel like sinking down into your chair and onto the floor after three. Typically, poppers are stuffed with loads of cream cheese and deep-fried. I’m not OK with those two things. In fact, I am protesting those two things right now. Despite replacing them with vegan cheese and baking instead of frying, the flavor and texture is not compromised one bit! The flavor is spot-on, and the gluten-free tortilla crumb topping brings these babies to the next level. This recipe is simple in that it requires 10 ingredients total! And a bonus? It comes together in 30 minutes. Easy party favors for the win.

20. Homemade Monkey Bread Recipe (Vegan!)

Homemade Monkey Bread Recipe (Vegan!)

Homemade monkey bread combines several tiny balls of dough coated in butter, cinnamon, and sugar. It’s basically a giant Bundt pan of gooey cinnamon rolls! Finish this fun breakfast or dessert treat with vanilla icing and serve pull apart style. You can have monkey bread for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. Or dinner, or 2nd dessert, or lunch, or snack. (Hey, I’m not judging! Every time is a good monkey bread time!) There are 4 parts to this monkey bread. It sounds like a lot, but most of the ingredients are repeated in each. One thing to note is that you pour the brown sugar sauce over the dough balls before baking. It’s the secret to monkey bread’s gooey sticky texture! It’s one of the most delicious Vegan New Years recipes.

19. Satsuma Fizz Cocktail

Satsuma Fizz Cocktail

Not only are we right smack dab in the holiday season, but we are approaching citrus season which I am absolutely thrilled about! Give me all the satsumas and clementines and blood oranges please. Oh and grapefruit! Of course. I’ll take a little lemon and lime on the side as well. I really don’t discriminate when it comes to these beauties. This is a fun cocktail because you can do it two ways! It’s delicious with both gin and vodka (separately, not together!) so, which is your favorite? Go for it. It’s one of those recipes that you can play around with and add to without ruining it. It’s super refreshing and delicious and even perfect enough to drink on Christmas morning if you’d like!

18. Butternut Squash Cheese Sauce

Butternut Squash Cheese Sauce

A good creamy cheese sauce makes pretty much everything better. And this butternut squash vegan cheese sauce is pure magic! Drizzle it over veggies, baked potato or pasta. Use it to make a batch of healthy nachos or just dunk your favorite tortilla chips in it! However you use it, keep a batch on hand for adding a little vegan cheese-y goodness to every meal. The nutritional yeast in this recipe gives the vegan cheese sauce that lovely earthy taste that a traditional cheese sauce has. It is also high in B-12, which is something important to make sure to add to a vegan diet. It’s so delicious and mouthwatering and one of my best Vegan New Years recipes.

13. Smoky Black Beans

Smoky Black Beans

Deep flavors from jalapeño, cumin, and oregano make these smoky beans extra fragrant. Got some time on your hands? If you have them, use dried beans instead of canned. This smoky black bean is so simple to make and packs such a punch of flavour. The smoked paprika tastes delicious with the hearty black beans and rich almond butter and tomato sauce. We love to serve it with a handful of fresh coriander and some brown rice, but it’s also great stuffed into jacket potatoes or even just with a side of sliced avocado. It’s really tasty and one of the most healthy Vegan New Years recipes I have eaten.

12. Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Coconut Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Summer just would not be summer without ridiculous amounts of ice cream. My mom never routinely kept ice cream at home, so getting an ice cream cone was definitely a treat to be savored. There are multiple layers of flavor in this ice cream, which gives it tremendous depth and such a smooth flavor. Unsweetened coconut is toasted and then steeped in a cream, milk and sugar mixture. Once it’s time to strain the mixture and discard the coconut, the creamy base has been infused with a wonderfully nutty coconut flavor. Once the custard base is churned, a small amount of toasted sweetened coconut is mixed into the ice cream, along with chunks of dark chocolate. It’s one of the delicious and best Vegan New Years recipes.

 New Year's Eve Rum Berry Cocktail

Big jugs of cocktails are great for a party, let guests help themselves to this cranberry and dark rum drink. I love the bitter-sweetness of the pomegranate juice in this cocktail.
