It’s crispy! It’s creamy! It’s free from dairy! That’s right, it cannoli be Dolcetta’s latest showstopper…
Dolcetta, the London-based vegan bakery, has achieved what once seemed impossible: perfectly crispy, dairy-free cannoli!
Adapted from an old family recipe, Dolcetta have tried and tried and tried again to really nail this dairy-free pastry. But they’ve only gone and bloody done it! They’ve created London’s first (and only) vegan cannoli.

Each cannoli shell is lined and dipped in dark chocolate before being filled with sweet vegan ricotta and topped with your choice of nuts, candied peel and/or chocolate chips.
In a statement to Vegan Food & Living, Dolcetta’s founder Lexi Galli said: “To me, mastering a Vegan Cannoli was the holy grail and I had put it off for such a long time as it is one of the most technically difficult pastries to get right, even before trying to ‘veganise it, but celebrations were never the same without them so I got baking!”
“After many many trials (and many many errors!) I succeeded and the results are truly impressive. My family have actually said they prefer the Dolcetta vegan cannoli to my original Sicilian family recipe and I tend to agree.”
Lucky Londoners can get these tasty pastries—as well as many other delicious vegan treats—delivered to their door. Head to Dolcetta’s website to find out more.
