Go into 2023 with a sweeter attitude.
Christmas gets all the attention toward the end of the year… but let’s not forget about New Years Eve! It’s the transition between one year and the next, and deserves to be toasted.
No doubt you’ve paid attention to the beverage element of the evening but consider the sweets for a moment. We’ve put together some delicious options that work for everyone, simple recipes that you can plan on as loved ones to gather around for the beginning of a new chapter.
A bit of bubble, a bit of sweet… a set of sparkling sorbets for you and your guests can bring the festivities up a notch. Blend up your own sorbet out of frozen mango and passion fruit cubes with a dash of agave syrup. Freeze it, then scoop the frozen mixture into decorative glass coupes and top with non-alcoholic sparkling wine.
Silky smooth panna cotta with a sweet, tangy twist? Yes, please. Make the panna cotta by combining coconut cream, coconut milk and agave syrup to a medium saucepan, setting over medium/high heat. Whisk in a teaspoon of agar agar powder — a vegetarian substitute for gelatin — into the boiling mixture, strain and divide into glasses. While that’s cooling and setting in the fridge, create a mango purée with lime juice and zest and mix. Once set, take the panna cotta out of the fridge and top with the purée and roasted coconut flakes. Yum.

plus, this one’s vegan! Created with 14 ounces of room temperature silken tofu, five ounces of dark chocolate, a bit of coffee and a bit of maple syrup, these treats are delicious and great for everyone, no matter their dietary requests. Between the tofu, vegan whipping cream and the chocolate, there’s always a way to create something vegan that tastes (and looks) fantastic.

Festive, flavorful, fun. Our last option is a delicious tapioca pudding with a salted caramel and coconut topping. A twist on a classic, create tapioca pudding this year with vegan ingredients, like plant-based milk and coconut milk. And did you know… tapioca pearls are already completely vegan! It’s a simple dessert option with a lovely, smooth flavor and a sweet topping that everyone will enjoy.
