GIVEAWAY- Cheers to Vegan Sweets

This Giveaway is Closed
cheers to vegan sweetsOne of my favorite veganmofo themes this year is Kelly Peloza’s Seitan Beats Your Meat. All month long she has been posting amazing Mad Men inspired recipes and photos and since I recently just re-watched the whole show it’s super fresh in my mind. It’s so fun to relive the whole show through vegan food!

Kelly is also a cookbook author and her newest book “Cheers to Vegan Sweets” is going to be available November 1st. All the recipes are inspired by cocktails like Bloody Mary Biscuits and Margarita Ice Cream or beverages like Apple Cider Donuts & Mexican Coffee Truffles. I’ve looked through the book and it’s gorgeous. There are full-page photographs throughout and the chapters are set up intelligently into sections like “The Café”, “The Lemonade Stand”, and “The Cocktail Lounge”.

Even though the book isn’t available until November 1st Fair Winds is giving away a copy to a luck mo-foer with an address in the US, Canada or the UK. All you have to do is tell me a cocktail or beverage that should never ever be turned into a dessert. Like a Kombucha filled doughnut. Please leave an email that you check in the comments too!

    Kool Aid Rice Krispie Treats 😛 please no!

  2. Lori says:

    Kvass Kake.

  3. Heather B. says:

    I’d say NEVER ever to turn a Bloody Mary into a dessert!

  4. Molly says:

    Jaegerbomb pie. Ick.

  5. Jess C says:

    A dirty martini! Pyick! Great in a glass, but in a dessert? No bueno!! ?

    Thanks!!!!! <3

  6. Jenny says:

    Red Bull (or any energy drink) ice cream float. Just…never. Please.

  7. Stacy says:

    Jager anything – yucky!!

  8. Jasmine says:

    potato juice tart
    swedish bitters pie
    IPA Jello (plant based of course)

  9. Sarra says:

    Hull-Clean. Sorry, “Heathers” reference.

    I’m going to say Sex on the Beach – not because it’s gross; just because it’s the worst name for a cocktail ever.

  10. Crystal says:

    Caesar pudding pie. Wiggle wiggle with celery salt on top.

  11. Betsy says:

    Vermouth would be uncouth.

  12. shaheen says:

    Bloody Mary – no no

  13. Taylor says:

    Bloody Mary. >.<

  14. Amy Kolasa says:

    I had to go look up some cocktails because I don’t drink that much. After very little research, it is easy to say that a Hot Mexican Hooker sounds horrible (in soooo many ways). It’s apparently tequila, tabasco, and the juice from a can of tuna.

    Now, fix me up with a peach bellini or rattlesnake dessert, and I’m there!

  15. Brooke Parker says:

    bloody mary macaron. yuck! i would still try it though

  16. Please, no Malört Flan.

  17. Mamachandra says:

    Not only should Clamato never be turned into a dessert, it just shouldn’t BE. *shiver*

  18. Krystal says:

    In the spirit of the upcoming holiday
    I’m going with the corpse reviver

  19. A. Cook says:

    A Bloody Mary cookie…eww!

  20. Clare says:

    Is saying rubbing alcohol cheating? How about lucozade frosting then. The original orange one. You get the feeling it helps you run longer but it still tastes like someone overdosed on sweets and threw up. It also has the bonus of being disconcertingly orange.

  21. Lizzie says:

    Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster pie would probably kill you… (some of you have got to get this reference, right??? ;])

  22. Nicole says:

    Barium Sulfate! Never ever ever ever in my dessert please.

  23. Kelly G. says:

    A Smoker’s Cough cookie.

    Still can’t believe that’s a legit cocktail, vegan mayo or no.

  24. Asena says:

    I have to agree with Mamachandra about the clamato!

    I think the worst thing to make into dessert would be the fermented camel milk drink (shubat) from central asia.

    This book looks amazing- thanks for the giveaway! I’ve never met something lemonade flavoured I didn’t love!

  25. Kylie - FotV says:

    Bourbon Treat – look it up. Blech.

  26. poopiebitch says:

    You know that Jones Soda flavor that’s supposed to taste like turkey and gravy? Yeah, that.

  27. Loving the answers. I think I will hope on board with any sort of energy drink being turned into a dessert. Ick!

  28. Rebecca Jones says:

    Lager – a pint of slightly frothy, cold, hop-flavoured yuck should never be turned into anything other than wee wee :-)

  29. Em says:

    I’m really not fond of beer and have a hard time imagining any kind of beer tasting good in a dessert.

  30. Stephen says:


  31. Cranky Apricot says:

    Gatorade should never be attempted, but I might try Tang!

  32. Nick says:

    I made an Irn Bru sponge cake with Irn Bru frosting once, hoping to create a Scottish twist on Chocolate Coca-Cola cake. It ranks among the worst things I’ve ever made in my life!

  33. charj says:

    Cel-Ray (celery soda) mousse

  34. kendy says:

    bloody mary ice cream – ick…

  35. courtney says:

    As much as I love green juice, I think it would taste nasty as a pie or any kind of dessert.


  36. Stacy says:

    Anything with Jager in it, totally gross!

  37. Cat says:

    Robitussin? Pickle juice?

  38. Walker Argendeli says:

    Please, no snake wine!

  39. Megan says:

    Koolaid cookies!


    Oh wait……:)

  40. I feel like kombucha doughnut basically wins, and I actually like kombucha. But I persevered! I’m not super familiar with cocktails so I had to do a little research.

    And then I had to stop when I found the LOBSTERITA. Which is a margarita with lobster in it. LOBSTERITA ANYTHING, ugh.

    • The two times I’ve been forced to go to Red Lobster (seafood chain in Canada, maybe US too?), there was nothing I could eat, other than a side salad. Instead, I opted to drink a “mega-lobsterita” which is a jumbo sized margarita, thankfully without lobster. If you can’t beat ’em, get a little bit tipsy!

  41. Jenn says:



  42. Green tea cake. Bleurgh.

  43. Jess says:

    My first choice would have been a bloody mary, but since that’s taken I also think that a dessert based upon a dirty martini would be a dreadful.

  44. Lindsey says:

    Raki pudding.

  45. Sara Mortensen says:

    Beer pudding. No thanks.

  46. Pingback: Camera Obscura: Vegan Moon Pies and Candied Starfruit | Seitan Beats Your Meat

  47. Maddie says:

    I immediately thought of Bloody Mary, but so did a lot of people. Another one that strikes me as fairly obvious but I don’t see answered yet is a martini. Olive? Onion? No. NO.

  48. Kacey says:

    Gatorade pudding pie. *shudder*

  49. Michelle micci says:

    Dirty martini or ouzo anything

  50. Hannah says:

    Red Bull. Red Bull should not be allowed to exist, far less turned into a dessert.

  51. Shannon says:

    Beet juice. I know most vegans love mixing it into sweets. But I CANNOT get behind it.

  52. Lorilee says:

    Cow’s milk *anything*!

  53. Mark says:

    MiraLAX Meringue Pie

  54. sarah says:

    anything with gin…

  55. Cadry says:

    I wouldn’t be eager to eat a gin & tonic muffin.

  56. Kim says:

    tequila mousse. ew.

  57. Rithika says:

    Campari Cupcake? *No!*

    Campari Anything? *Neverrrrr!*

  58. Kelley says:

    People have already mentioned beer and gin and tonic, so I’ll go with a Negroni.

  59. Wheatgrass ice cream. Or cookies. Or anything.

  60. Jason Predick says:

    Bloody mary/tomato juice chocolate chip cookies. :-/

  61. Jal jeera brownies. I feel sick just thinking about it. My husband made me try this spicy Indian drink noted for its digestive properties once when I had a stomach ache and I can’t get that nasty taste out of my head. (Some people like it, but I think even they’d agree that it would not go with brownies at all!)

  62. Gina Sengupta says:

    v8 flan

  63. Joey says:

    Natto cheesecake. Or just anything with natto in it.

  64. Carmen says:

    Anything with Red Bull! Yuck.

  65. Tessa says:

    Hmmmm…. the creativity of vegan chefs always inspires me, so I’d try almost anything. But I don’t think anyone should honestly attempt to make a dessert inspired by a wheatgrass shot. Stop while you’re ahead!

  66. Rachel says:

    Olive juice pudding pie!

  67. Liane says:

    For me the worst would be a salty soy sauce&garlic ice cream… yuck^^

  68. Becca says:

    Any mixture of beer and pie sounds gross to me

  69. Laura says:

    I have to agree that jager-bomb anything would be terrible.

  70. Lyndsey says:

    Tomato juice/V8 cookies. Or pie. Or ice cream —>>> yuck! Especially ice cream! I refuse to try any savory ice creams…

  71. Kim says:

    I don’t really drink cocktails so I’m not sure what would make a bad dessert, but I do love baking sweets! Thanks for offering such a great giveaway!

  72. Rachel says:

    I was looking for something to do with homemade Irish cream, and I came across quite a few cocktail recipes that should never be. The worst was called something like an Irish curdling cow – Bailey’s, vodka, bourbon, orange juice, and milk. Those things should never be consumed together in any form.

  73. Beth says:

    I agree with all the bloody mary dessert people- that just sounds nasty!!
