This homemade Gluten-Free Vegan Healthy "Cadbury Creme Eggs" recipe is an easy and fun Easter dessert to make with only 7 clean ingredients and they're naturally colored with organic ground turmeric powder!
If you remember enjoying the classic "Cadbury Creme Eggs" in your Easter basket as a child, it's very likely you weren't wondering if they were vegan or not - I know I wasn't!
Well, guess what?
They aren't vegan!
They contain dried whey (milk), dried egg whites and milk.
So I recreated this classic Easter treat by using clean ingredients that are vegan and gluten-free so you don't have to miss out on childhood memories.
I even naturally colored the yellow part of the filling with organic turmeric powder so you don't have to worry about any unhealthy food colorings.
Another healthy Easter egg dessert that's fun to make are my Gluten-Free Vegan Healthy "Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs" which are also vegan and gluten-free.
Are These "Cadbury Creme Eggs" Vegan?
The original store-bought "Cadbury Creme Eggs" are NOT vegan, but my recipe is 100% vegan.
You just need to make sure you use this organic vegan powdered sugar because most powdered sugars contain animal bone char to whiten them.

How To Make Gluten-Free Vegan Healthy "Cadbury Creme Eggs":
It's really easy to make this fun dessert with just a few steps.
You'll want to make sure you have this silicone egg mold before starting.
Step 1: Make the Filling:
This easy step only takes a few minutes because all you need to do is add the ingredients for the filling to a bowl and stir everything together.
You'll reserve a small amount to use for the "yellow" filling and naturally color it with organic ground turmeric powder.
Step 2: Make the Chocolate Coating:
This step also only takes a few minutes by adding the ingredients for the chocolate to a small saucepan and melting until it's smooth.
Once you've made the filling and chocolate, all you need to do is assemble them into the egg mold and then let them firm in the freezer before enjoying.
