Summer is the time for children’s parties; end-of-the-school year parties, birthday parties and family barbeques. With allergies and dietary concerns, it’s hard to know just what to serve party guests. Here are some simple ideas for dairy-free treats for those who are lactose intolerant or following a vegan diet.
Fill your freezer full of Tofutti products non-dairy products and you will be set for party season.
Create a Make-Your Own Sundae Bar or Float Station
Yes it may be messy, but imagine the fun! Set out bowls of toppings like big bowls of freshly cut fruit, crumbled homemade or store bought vegan cookies, candies and a bowl of chocolate sauce. Adults can be on hand to dish out delicious scoops of creamy TOFUTTI PREMIUM® non-dairy frozen dessert in yummy flavours like Vanilla, Vanilla Almond Bark, Vanilla Fudge, Chocolate and Chocolate Cookie Crunch and Better Pecan. Kids can mix and match and heap on toppings until their heart’s content.
To make ice cream sodas, ask a volunteer to fill glasses half way full with your favourite soda flavour, leaving room for a big scoop of TOFUTTI PREMIUM® non-dairy frozen dessert. The icy cold concoction will bubble up and may even foam over like the kid’s favourite science project! Add a straw and serve.
Make Your Own Ice Cream (Non-dairy in this case) Sandwiches
A few days before the party, make your favourite homemade vegan cookies and store in an air-tight container. For a children’s party, make cookies about four to five inches in diameter or large enough to hold one medium size scoop of TOFUTTI PREMIUM® non-dairy frozen dessert. At party time, ask another adult to volunteer to help children make their own custom sandwiches. Place one cookie on a small plate, top with a scoop of Vanilla or Chocolate TOFUTTI PREMIUM® non-dairy frozen dessert. Add the second cookie, press down slightly and be prepared to delight partygoers of every age!
