Evanna Lynch, who played Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter series, has taken to YouTube and you’re going to want to watch her latest video.
As a proud advocate for veganism, Evanna has teamed up with PETA’s youth division (peta2), creating vegan recipes for all of her favourite Harry Potter themed food.
In the video tutorial uploaded yesterday, entitled ‘The Magical Side of Vegan Cooking’, Evanna shared her top three vegan recipes: chocolate frogs, butter beer and pumpkin pasties.
Yes, this actually happened. This is not a drill.
‘Today we’re going to be veganising my favourite Harry Potter recipes. First we’re going to be making vegan chocolate frogs, the perfect vegan treat for any witch, wizard of muggle’, Evanna began, pouring melted vegan chocolate into moulds and freezing them for two hours.
Then she moved on to the dairy-free butterbeer, mixing apple juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, vegan butter and non-dairy milk. ‘What better way to wash down your chocolate frogs than with some vegan butter beer?’ she joked, ‘Instead of going to the Three Broomsticks or the Hog’s Head, making it at home will save you a sickle, and it’s non alcoholic so you can go flying afterwards’.
‘And if you’re still hungry’, she announced concluding the video, ‘here’s my favourite recipe for vegan pumpkin pasties’, mixing pumpkin, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon and wrapping it in pastry.
We seriously hope that Evanna makes these for the Harry Potter cast on a regular basis.
‘Whether it’s owls, rats or hippogriffs, be a hero for animals’, she announced, concluding the video by encouraging viewers to get involved with Peta, and to make some Harry Potter themed snacks.
If you’ll excuse us, we need to make all of these. Now.
