Brooklyn, N.Y. – Now that 47% of Americans want to incorporate more vegan foods into their meals, this Thanksgiving is poised to be the most vegan one yet. So to help holiday hosts plan their menus, PETA has compieled the Top 10 Vegan Pies served around the country, and Clementine Bakery’s Sweet Potato Coconut Pie has won a spot on the list.
“Made with organic roasted sweet potatoes and seasoned with the perfect autumn trio of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla beans, Clementine Bakery’s vegan pie is a holiday smash,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “From peach to pecan, PETA celebrates all the vegan pies that make it easy to enjoy a delicious ‘ThanksVegan’ feast that leaves cows and chickens in peace.”
Not only are vegan desserts free of saturated animal fat and cholesterol, they also spare animals immense suffering: In the dairy industry, calves are torn away from their mothers shortly after birth, and in the egg industry, parts of chickens’ beaks are cut off with a hot blade when they’re just a few days old.
Other honorees include Sinfull Bakery in Houston; Mo’Pweeze Bakery in Denville, New Jersey; Sweet Hazel & Co. in Murray, Utah; and Ezra’s Enlightened Café in Indianapolis. Each eatery will receive a framed certificate from PETA, which offers a ThanksVegan guide as well as recipes for apple and pumpkin pies and much more on its website.
PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to eat”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit PETA.org or follow the group on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
