Whether you are trying to eat healthier or add more plants to your daily diet (or simply missing an ingredient for a recipe and need a swap), we have you covered! Honestly, on a weekly basis we usually go to make something and realize we are missing an ingredient, so the list below is quite helpful!
Next time you want to try something new or are in a pinch, try one of the plant-based swaps below:

Whole eggs → Flax or chia egg (mix 1 tbsp. flax or chia with 3 tbsp. of water for one egg), applesauce (approx. 1/4 cup), or mashed banana
Egg whites → 2 tbsp. aquafaba per egg white. Aquafaba is the liquid in a garbanzo (chickpea) can that you usually pour down the drain. Now you have a use for it!
Oil → Applesauce or canned pumpkin
Butter → Vegan butters such as Earth Balance or I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter or applesauce or vegetable shortening
Sugar → Coconut or date sugars, or maple syrup (or you can even make a date syrup simply by blending dates with water).
Heavy cream → Dairy free plain yogurts, silken tofu, coconut cream, mashed avocado or soaked and blended cashews
Milk → Non-dairy milks like almond, coconut, hemp or soy
Ice cream → Banana Ice Cream! Simply freeze bananas, blend and enjoy. You can check out some of our favorite recipes and variations here.
