RELATED: Best New Vegan Products August 2020
Product: Avocado Oil Vegenaise
Follow Your Heart is on a roll! The brand released a new Vegenaise—an avocado oil based mayonnaise—that is completely vegan. The egg-free, soy-free, and dairy-free spread is the ideal condiment on a juicy vegan burger or in a recipe from their latest cookbook. The main ingredient, avocado oil, is a healthier alternative to the highly processed oils on the market and provides a subtle flavor to the product.
Product: Avocado Pudding
Avoca’Do sells a delicious plant-based pudding made with fresh avocados. The main ingredient, Hass avocados, accompanies agave nectar, rice milk, cocoa, and vanilla extract. This heart-healthy snack—a tasty addition to a school lunch—is vegan, gluten-free, and devoid of the top eight allergens. The rich and creamy chocolaty pudding is pronounced ava-ka-DO as in “get out and DO something healthy!” We’re ready to dig into this guilt-free dessert and stock up, as Avoca’Do freezes well.

Product: Chocolate Bars
Moodygirl Chocolate just launched organic, vegan, gluten-free, and refined sugar-free chocolate bars containing only three ingredients—cocoa mass, coconut blossom sugar, and cocoa butter—and added vitamins and adaptogens. The line consists of three indulgent bars, including “For That Time of the Month” (infused with magnesium and vitamin B6 to help relax your muscles, support mood, and help fight fatigue), “Libido Lover” (which contains maca and horny goat weed), and—our favorite—the “Chill Out'' (a minty chocolate that utilizes ashwagandha, an adaptogen to support anxiety and stress). We suggest you try them all with the variety pack.
Product: Oat Milk Adaptogen Drinks
Koia is known for its high quality protein shakes which contain all nine essential amino acids. Koia Thrive is the newest addition to the brand and the first to utilize oat milk! The adaptogenic drink is available in three flavors, including Miracle Matcha, Golden Turmeric, and Chill Chocolate. The plant-based drinks are formulated with super herbs (they vary depending on the flavor) to promote energy, vitality, and tranquility. The Chill Chocolate—which tastes like a brownie in a bottle—provides cognitive and memory support from the use of ashwagandha and L-theanine. Koia is sold at Whole Foods nationwide and available for purchase online at drinkkoia.com.

MAGICdATES has cultivated a dessert you can feel good about eating—date bites! The plant-based and paleo rounds contain no refined sugars, meaning no spikes in your blood sugar. MAGICdATES come in two varieties, one covered with indulgent dark chocolate (Coconut, Hazelnut, Chocolate, and Blueberry flavors) and the original (Lemon, Chocolate, and Coconut flavors). We like to enjoy these energy bites straight out of the bag for a midafternoon snack.

Product: Hemp Chips
Heaven's Lettuce is the world's first chip to be made using hemp leaves! The chips are dried, not fried, giving a nice crunchy texture and preserving nutrients and vitamins from the plant. Each bag contains two servings and provides a whopping 15g of protein for only 140-180 calories. The product comes available in three flavors: “Hot As Heck,” “Notso Cheese,” and “Original”—all vegan and paleo-friendly. Fun Fact: These flavorful goodies are rich in vitamin A and C!
Product: Pumpkin Pie Hummus
DELIGHTED BY Desserts—popularly known for their dessert hummus—comes ready to dip, spread, or eat straight from the container! DELIGHTED BY’s pumpkin pie dip—our new fall (aka pumpkin season) favorite—reminds us of good old pumpkin pie filling. The chickpea-based dessert makes a delightful dip for graham crackers, pretzels, apples, vegan marshmallows, and more. You can even whip up a simple vegan pumpkin pie by filling a graham cracker crust with the dip, freezing for twenty minutes, and then topping with some vegan whipped cream. Enjoy!
Product: Kids Pasta and Lentil Pilaf
Tolerant Foods Red Lentil Pilaf is a deliciously convenient rice alternative with 13g of plant-based protein per serving. The globally inspired flavors include Wild Mushroom, Asian Ginger, Smoky Peruvian-Style, and Spanish-Style Paella. Each box is seasoned for easy cooking, and contains 46-50% of your daily fiber. Tolerant Foods Kids Pasta—an organic single ingredient noodle—is allergen-free. The Red Lentil Galaxy, Chickpea Alphaland, and Green Lentil Safari cook up protein-packed meals for little foodies! The fun shapes jazz up a boring pasta dish while providing 11-14g of protein and 21% of daily fiber.
Nubocha—a vegan and keto-friendly gelato brand—uses allulose, a diabetic-friendly alternative, as a sweetener. The decadent tasting pints crafted with whole food ingredients and spring water (no coconut milk!), are available in Chocolate Arriba, Salted Caramel, Italian Vanilla, Peanut Butter, and Pistachio. The clean frozen dessert is made with less than nine ingredients, and clocks in at 250-330 calories per pint depending on the flavor. Stop into Santa Monica Co-op, Culver City Co-op, Farmshop, Canyon Gourmet, Monsieur Marcel, Pantry LA, Hollywood Supermart, and Glowing Juices in LA or visit their website to stock your freezer with this guilt-free dessert.
