Iconic British brand Horlicks has developed a range of new recipes to inspire operators to incorporate more vegan friendly beverages on their menus. These hot and cold drink recipes have all been developed to recreate the flavours of the nation’s favourite desserts with Horlicks Vegan as the secret ingredient gorming the biscuity base flavour.
The demand for vegan-friendly meals and beverages has never been higher, with the UK-based Veganuary campaign welcoming its 1 millionth participant.
The new dairy-free Horlicks blend is the basis of the recipes which have been developed to highlight how easy it is for operators to create on-trend, vegan-friendly menus with the help of such a versatile, delicious product, as Michelle Younger, Head of Marketing for Aimia Foods explains:
“Our new recipes have been specifically developed to complement our vegan blend and show just how much Horlicks has to offer when it comes to creating new and exciting, vegan friendly shakes, frappes and more!
Our development chef, Paul Dickson, has over 20 years’ experience developing delicious recipes and has used this creative experience to utilise the delicious flavour of Horlicks in multiple dishes and drinks. Our highly versatile Horlicks Vegan will help satisfy soaring demand for new vegan options, as well as inspire operators to create on-trend, seasonal beverages that suit a wider range of diets.”
Seven new recipes have been developed in total, all of which have been inspired by popular desserts in the UK, including:
- Baked Vanilla Cheesecake
- Banoffee Pie Frappe
- Cherry Bakewell Frappe
- Cookies & Cream Shake
- Crumble & Custard Shake
- Horlicks S’mores
- Millionaire-layered Horlicks
