10 Plant-Based YouTubers We Love
I’ve been watching YouTube videos for help to learn how to apply makeup, cook, and do all sorts of basic, everyday things since I was in 7th grade. Now that I’m in college, I love learning from the plant-based YouTubers cooking up amazing fare. These innovative content creators have impacted my plant-based journey in a big way — and I want to share them with you.
Here are 10 vegan YouTubers who are hitting the mark with delicious recipes and even science-based information on the health benefits of a plant-based lifestyle:
Healthy Crazy Cool
I love Miles Kasiri, the YouTuber behind Healthy Crazy Cool, because he is a certified nutritionist who has a passion for sharing his healthy, plant-based eating habits with the world. Miles has many videos addressing a plant-based approach to issues like weight loss, fiber and nutrient deficiencies and general holistic healing through eating a whole-food plant-based diet.
Cheap Lazy Vegan
YouTuber Rose creates incredibly delicious and inexpensive plant-based meals that are nutrient-dense and easy to recreate. She really gives a powerful argument that anyone can eat plant-based — even when on a budget. With more than 1,000 videos, she has tons of different inexpensive, healthy recipe videos for plant-based foods. Rose is engaging and relatable to the younger YouTube community (especially college students), but her videos are great for all ages.
Previously mentioned in our post on plant-based eating in college, Jordan shares tips on everything from meal prep to working out, hormone-balancing meals, mood-boosting dishes, sugar-balancing plates and other healing plant-based recipes and how-tos. She delivers concise information and her spirited, knowledgeable, healthy-from-the-inside approach is captivating.
Jordan isn’t flashy and gets straight to the point. Not only will Jordan show you amazing plant-based recipes, but she’ll explain why they’re beneficial to the nourishment and healing of our bodies — as her adorable golden retriever, Jackson, looks on.
MommyTang is a fun, lively influencer who shares funny stories about her life, while she cooks and eats “mukbang” style in her videos. She shares her vegan, Korean-style recipes and food with her followers, with an emphasis on family-friendly dishes.

Jess creates beautiful and inspiring meals. She is best known for her “What I Eat in a Day/Week” videos that showcase her choices to help inspire and motivate her followers. She is a great resource for meal prep tips or just to kick back and enjoy a fun cooking video — if that’s your flavor.

With millions of views, Gaz serves delicious, (often gourmet) recipes to his viewers. If you’re looking to really wow a crowd or impress a date, Gaz is your guy.

With a successful blog and cookbook, Henry and Ian, the duo behind Bosh! bring all their recipes to life on YouTube. Their recipes look so mouth-watering, you’ll be eager to cook up any of their dishes.

Thanks Maggie for this informative article! It’s good for me to see the ideas, and recipes from other vegans. I’ve been a vegan now for two years and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve always been very much into nutrition and I’ve been a vegetarian (and accomplished chef) for most of my life. Help me to understand why so many influencers are so hard on ex-vegans and they tend to do videos of criticizing and bashing the x’s decisions. Isn’t being a vegan also about respecting humans as well? For me, going vegan also means giving your fellow humans- as well as animals – a break! I have friends and family that are meat eaters, vegans, vegetarians, kosher, etc. It would be hypocritical of me to force my ideas on their personal choices… What’s up with that?
