Unless you’ve been hiding from the internet over the last few weeks, you’re probably already aware of Barbie fever. Greta Gerwig’s much-anticipated telling of the world-famous blonde doll and “just Ken” finally hit the screens on July 21, and now, in the understatement of the year, everyone is obsessed.

One of the best ways to mark the occasion? It is, of course, to wear pink, think pink, breathe pink, and even eat pink. If you’re having a pre- or post-watch celebration, you need a pick-me-up in the middle of your Barbenheimer viewing, or you just fancy getting in the spirit with some aesthetically pleasing food, we’ve gathered some of our favorite vegan pink recipes below. So, come on Barbies, let’s party! 

How to watch ‘Barbie’

As mentioned above, Barbie has been in movie theaters since July 21 and is likely to stay there for several weeks if the current level of demand is anything to go by. Despite stiff competition from Oppenheimer, the movie has already made history, racking up $377 million at the box office in its first weekend—the highest amount ever for a film directed by a woman.

Right now, it’s not confirmed when Barbie will be available to watch from home, but we know it will be released exclusively on HBO Max’s streaming platform first. But while you wait, you can keep the Barbie vibes going with plenty of deliciously pink vegan food.
