Have you ever wanted to start eating more plant-based, but been concerned about giving up some of life’s potent pleasures? Amarula’s new vegan ‘cream’ liqueur is the antidote to your worries. Rich, warm and endlessly indulgent, it’s not a begrudging replacement for dairy — it’s a delight to seek out in its own right.

Ontarians, you’re in luck. Amarula Plant Based is now available in the province, and it’s already making waves in the vegan liqueur game. The first ‘cream’ liqueur to be plant based, certified vegan by the Global Vegan Society, dairy free, nut free, gluten free and sans artificial flavours or colours, it’s a dream come true for the lactose intolerant, people staying away from dairy or simply those who’d like a healthier alternative.

We don’t want to just focus on what Amarula Plant Based doesn’t have when the list of what it does is so impressive. Made from Marula fruit spirit and blended with coconut milk, Amarula Plant Based delivers gentle notes of caramel, vanilla and creamy coconut finished with notes of marula fruit (think nutty, without a single legume in sight). That’s enough coconut to conjure mirages of swaying palm trees with every sip.

A unique experience awaits when you enjoy Amarula Plant Based neat, over ice or in a cocktail with family and friends. Delicious flavour is, of course, a huge part of what makes this drink such an exquisite choice, but there’s more to it than exceptional taste. It embodies generosity of spirit, the inner warmth that arises from coming together in celebration and for the common good of enriching the lives of people, communities and the planet. It’s the perfect choice to bring to your next backyard gathering or summer get together, vegan or not — but we wouldn’t blame you for pouring yourself a glass whenever your heart desires.
