These classic holiday dishes are surprisingly not vegan — but luckily they can be.
It's de-li-cious, but all those marshmallows? Nope. Gelatin is made from protein of animal byproducts.

A vegan icing made from powdered sugar and aquafaba (chickpea brine) will work just like the real thing.

Mincemeat pies scream Christmas but often contain suet and even chunks of meat.
Anyone can enjoy these vegan, gluten-free mincemeat pies.
Tamales are truly amazing, but even those filled with veggies often have dough made with lard.
You can still enjoy hearty tamales — just swap the lard for vegan shortening, margarine or oil.
Commerical candy canes are a favorite, but some can contain carmine, a dye made from beetles.
Make your own! Use vegan sugar and food coloring, and enjoy the minty sweet fruit of your labor.
From butter to whey to cheese, crispy crackers often contain non-vegan ingredients.
All you really need for totally vegan crackers is flour, olive oil and seasoning.

Nix the powdered milk, and opt for this simple but still decadent vegan cocoa mix instead.
