Mashed Sweet Potatoes

The Mashed Sweet Potatoes that Trader Joe’s carries are great for those who want mashed potatoes, but don’t have time or are too lazy to to wash, peel, steam, and then mash and flavor potatoes. These come prepped and already mashed—all you have to do is heat them up and add spices and the like to flavor it to your preferences.

Cranberry Sauce

Similar to the mashed sweet potatoes, this cranberry sauce is perfect for the laziest of cooks. All you have to do is open the jar and pour it in a dish.

Sweet Potato & Marshmallow Pixie Pie Mix

Looking for something a little different from your typical pumpkin or apple pie? Then pick up this sweet potato and marshmallow pie mix! Yes, even the marshmallows are vegan—no gelatin in sight. Just follow the directions on the box, using an egg replacer in place of the egg, and you’re good to go.

Pumpkin Rolls

These bad boys are surprisingly vegan, including the icing. They’re soft on the inside and crispy on the outside with the most delicious pumpkin spice icing you can drizzle on top.

Maple Leaf Cookies

These are vegan cookies are actually cookie sandwiches with maple cream in the center. And, they’re even shaped like maple leaves. They’re a perfect addition to your dessert options, and a great go-to for those who want something other than your typical Thanksgiving treats.

Spiced Cider

Whether you want to drink this as is or use it in a cocktail for your 21 and over guests, this spiced apple cider will be a crowd-pleaser.

Organic Pumpkin

Trader Joe’s has canned pumpkin puree for all your pumpkin-based recipe needs. You could obviously use some for your pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, etc., or make pumpkin pie oatmeal or pumpkin pancakes the morning of Thanksgiving if want to be extra festive.
