It is true! Baileys just came around with Almande, an Almond Milk Liquor that is dairy-free, certified vegan and reminds us a lot of Irish Cream!
We have long been waiting for an ethical alternative! After sadly sipping bad, dry wine party after party, Baileys, as so many other companies, could not deny the growing demand for dairy-free products any longer!
Now, vegan-friendly Baileys, aka Baileys Almande, is finally on sale in Germany and the UK after hitting shelves in America back in March.
By the way, the stuff is also gluten-free, so even more of us get to enjoy it without remorse. So obviously, I am not the only one getting excited about it!
The secret behind the creamy liquor: Apparently it is made by blending “Luscious, nutty flavors of real almond milk with delicious vanilla for an incredibly versatile treat”. And by adding a little sparkling fairy dust, … maybe.
So what exactly is in it?
The ingredient list reads: Almond milk, almond essence, cane sugar, purified water and real vanilla. Mmh!
I would say, my moms upcoming birthday and Christmas are saved.
But if you don’t want to enjoy it on the rocks, what to do with the liquid gold?
… Hold my glass and let me show you!
Give your favorite meals a boozy makeover
Super Nice Cream
You thought taking your nice cream one level further was impossible? Think again! Not only are frozen bananas and Baileys the perfect match, but I can not wait to introduce Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip to Almande!

No-Bake Raw Vegan Cake
A vegan delight, made with nuts, dates, avocado and a new level of excitement thanks to one ore the other shot of Almande! Just switch the liquid part, most of the times pure soy or almond milk, in your recipe with Baileys. Doesn’t that sound glorious?
You could, of course, also use this traditional vegan cheesecake recipe of mine!
Smoothies are symbols for clean eating, breakfast porn and post-workout-recovery, but did you know that a little spike can turn your healthy blends into an adult beverage perfect for a fall-evening unwinding?

Baileys Chocolate Pudding
Both Baileys and chocolate are a match made in heaven. Got only a little bit of Baileys left? Perfect! Why don’t you try a delicious chocolate mousse on the base of avocado! It is the perfect way of making the most out of it. With only a handful of ingredients, you can have a yummy mousse or pudding whipped up in no time.
Sure you could just drink your Baileys, but you could also eat it in the form of adorable cookies. I would say, it’s time to take your baked goods to a new level with the addition of Irish Cream.
