Can’t get enough of that gravy? You’re in luck! This year, Trader Joe’s will be selling individual containers of that glorious vegan liquid gold! It pairs perfectly with mashed potatoes, stuffing, bread, or the Turkey-less Roast––which already comes with gravy, but one can never have too much.

Riced Cauliflower Stuffing

Mashed Sweet Potatoes

When it comes to potatoes, we ain’t got no type! This product saves you from the grueling process of peeling and boiling potatoes. It’s composed of just one ingredient, sweet potatoes––no, really? And it even comes with microwave directions for those college students looking for a make-shift dorm-friendly Thanksgiving.

Mini Marshmallows

Whatever form of coconut offspring your recipe calls for, Trader Joe’s probably has it. Organic Coconut Milk, Organic Reduced-Fat Coconut Milk, and Organic Coconut Cream are the variations you’ll find in the aisles of TJ’s.

Organic Pumpkin

Speaking of pie, don’t forget the pumpkin! If you want to go down the classic route and make a vegan pumpkin pie, you might need a few of these.

Vegan Cookies

These Vegan Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Chocolate Chip, and Trail Mix cookies are just what you need to finish off the dessert table. If you just can’t get enough, rejoice in knowing they’re available year round!

Chocolate Chips

Instead of paying an insane amount of money for chocolate chips that are clearly marked as “vegan,” save some coin with these “accidentally vegan” chocolate pieces of bliss! They’re perfect for homemade chocolate chip cookies or to sprinkle on top of your pie (on top of the ice cream, on top of the whipped cream—it’s the holiday season, anything goes!).
