If you’re looking for the ultimate healthy treat, then these dairy-free chocolate-dipped strawberries should be first on your list! Fresh and decadent at the same time, this dessert is such a favorite for all ages. Kids and adults alike cannot pass at the opportunity of eating these.
These non-dairy chocolate dipped strawberries are the perfect summer treat! Buying strawberries when they are in season is always recommended because they are the sweetest and juiciest, but we know it’s not always feasible. Luckily, finding strawberries during the colder months is still possible, we just especially enjoy these in the warm summer sun.
When it comes to the chocolate, we recommend semi-sweet non-dairy chocolate chips for a nice, soft and smooth coating, plus they are very easy to melt. Here's a great guide to melting chocolate if you want to learn more! Our favorite brands for vegan chocolate chips are Enjoy Life Foods, Guittard, and Trader Joe’s.
If you're wondering where to buy vegan chocolate dipped strawberries this Valentine's day, I suggest skipping the store and making your own! They are super easy to make and budget-friendly! Add a few decorative sprinkles or chopped nuts and they’re the perfect vegan treat!
Not at all! You can simply melt the dairy free chocolate in a safe microwave bowl for 30 seconds until it's melted. A pro tip is to stir in a few chocolate chips once the chocolate is already melted to temper it. This will make your coating extra smooth and avoid streaks. This guide will give you the ins and outs!
This seems like a no-brainer, but there are a few things you should keep in mind. Hold the strawberry by its leaves and roll it in the vegan chocolate to cover it all around. A good tip is to not cover the entire fruit so there’s a glimpse of that gorgeous red near the top.
You can store them on the same parchment paper inside your fridge uncovered. Unfortunately, we advise you eat them within a day or two since neither the strawberries nor the dairy-free chocolate won’t hold for longer than that. Plus, we don’t think you’ll resist them for too long anyway!
