You Can Buy These Vegan Cheeses For Less Than £2.50 In Top UK Supermarkets

by Indie Films Dee 2 years ago in vegan

One of the inconveniences experienced when living a vegan lifestyle is the higher price of some non-dairy products - however, as veganism is growing in the UK, non-dairy alternatives are becoming a lot more accessible and affordable. Here's some vegan cheeses that are delicious, easy to find and won't burn a giant hole in your wallet!

You Can Buy These Vegan Cheeses For Less Than £2.50 In Top UK Supermarkets

Tesco's Own-brand "Free From" Cheeses

The UK's most popular supermarket chain now has the biggest Free From range with an ever-growing selection of dairy alternatives. The range includes Tesco's own brand Free From cheeses, which are made with coconut oil and are just like the real thing. They're easy on your bank, too—the cheeses listed below are all currently priced at £2.25:

  • Tesco Free From Mature Cheddar Alternative (200G)
  • Tesco Free From Wensleydale And Cranberry Cheese Alternative (200G)
  • Tesco Free From Smoked Cheese Alternative (200G)
  • Tesco Free From Jalapeno And Chilli Cheese Alternative (200G) (Personal favourite of mine!)
  • Tesco Free From Coconut Oil Alternative To Goats Cheese (170G)
  • Tesco Free From Soft Cheese (255G)

Included in the range is also Tesco Free From Italian Style Hard Cheese Alternative (60G) for just £2.00.

Sainsbury's Own-brand "Deliciously Free From" Range of Cheeses

Like Tesco's Free From range, Sainsbury's "Deliciously Free From" range also offers a variety of block and cream cheeses produced from coconut oil with infusions of other ingredients such as herbs, caramelised onion, etc. They perfectly mimic popular types of non-vegan cheese such as cheddar and greek-style cheese, and all of the below can be bought for £2.25:

  • Sainsbury's Deliciously Free From Cheddar-Style Coconut Based Alternative To Cheese (200G)
  • Sainsbury's Deliciously Free From Cheddar-Style with Chives (200G)
  • Sainsbury's Deliciously Free From Cheddar Style with Onion Coconut Based Alternative to Cheese (200G) (Another personal fave)
  • Sainsbury's Deliciously Free From Greek-Style Coconut Based Alternative to Cheese (200G)

There are also tasty cream cheeses sold at only £1.80:

  • Sainsbury's Deliciously Free From Original Coconut Based alternative To Soft Cheese (170G)
  • Sainsbury's Deliciously Free From Garlic & Herb Coconut Based Alternative To Soft Cheese (170G)

Asda's Free From Cheeses for Only £2

Yes, you heard it... Asda's dairy-free cheeses, introduced in January this year in the UK, are priced at an amazing £2. If you have an Asda store near you, this is a total steal—some vegans have said the mature cheddar alternative is the closest replica to real cheddar so far. The cheeses they are currently selling in their own Free From range for the price of £2 are as follows:

  • ASDA Free From Mature Cheddar Alternative (200G)
  • ASDA Free From Grated Cheddar Alternative (200G)
  • ASDA Free From Grated Mozzarella Alternative (200G)
  • ASDA Free From Soft Cheese Alternative (255G)

Violife. If you're vegan, you will know Violife.
