To meet consumer demand, today’s chefs constantly face the challenge of creating a flavorful, innovative menu that satisfies dietary restrictions and preferences. With vegan, lactose-intolerant, allergy-prone, and health-conscious customers, delivering on creamy, indulgent dessert favorites may seem like an insurmountable task. However, you don’t have to reimagine your entire menu. Creating a dairy-free dessert can be as effortless as making simple substitutions.
Rich’s® Plant-Based Cooking Créme is the perfect dairy substitution to enhance your plant-forward offerings. This vegan substitute for heavy cream allows you to serve customers better-for-you, creamy menu items with the same indulgent qualities as an offering with dairy. Use it as the base for a luscious cheesecake ready to satisfy your customers’ dietary needs. Don’t forget to deliver on trending and adventurous flavors. In the recipe below, we pack this dairy-free dessert with aromatic cardamom and the fresh flavors of coconut and mango. Garnish with candied ginger and fresh mint for a stunning presentation.
