  1. please do a sugar free version of this amazing trifle, stevia can replace sugar in the custard and adding vanilla essence to custard sweetens it, and something to replace the 2 cups of sugar in the vanilla sponge, vanilla extract, orange juice and dates or jam are great sweeteners – sugar is a poison

  2. Elsa I just love you so much! Thank you so much for sharing all your delicious recipes. It is truly makes it easier to be vegan even my husband going vegan with your rich, delicious, amazing recipes. You are truly light worker and just amazing, generous person. I’m amazed how easy to follow everything you show and it works every time.💖💖💖💖💖💜💜💜💜💜💜🌷🦋💫😘

  3. After being in the fridge, if you flip the coconut cream can upside down and then open it you will have the liquid on top, which makes it really easy to pour off. This helps prevent from getting any liquid in your mixture.

  4. I was just thinking about the time I ate Tofu and I started feeling very ill, hot and feverish –then proceeded to vomit. Any ideas on why this happened? It was my first time trying it + it was NOT expired.

  5. Hi Ela, I love your videos and am new to working on having a vegan lifestyle. Question: do you have to use Soy milk for this recipe? Can I use Almond or Coconut?

  6. I’m sure you know about this, but I just want to make sure your followers know too. Palm-oil is often market as vegetable-oil. Be careful what you buy and avoid buying palm-oil please.

  7. I just wanted to let you know that you have become one of my absolute favourite youtubers very quickly! I love your videos and what you stand for, I love everything that you promote. I’ve made your anti-cellulite coffee scrub, which is absolutely gorgeous (my boyfriend really likes it too, though not really as a cellulite product, hahah). I’m planning on making your vegan date-caramel, face scrub, and some of your vegan cheeses! Perhaps the perfume as well. Thank you so much for your material! 😀 <3
