Ariana Grande’s brother Frankie James Grande says he’s a ‘super proud vegan’.

The American dancer and YouTube personality made the comment to his 2.1 million Instagram followers. 

A ‘super proud vegan’

“Hey guys, it’s Frankie and I’m a super proud vegan,” he said in a TikTok video he reposted to Instagram.

“So, my cute dad decided to get me this box of raw vegetables for my birthday forgetting that I don’t cook.

“But luckily my sister got this Star Wars crockpot for me for Christmas – also forgetting that I don’t cook and don’t know what to do with it.

“But, I love Star Wars so I looked up a recipe online… I’m cutting up vegetables, rolling them into the pot.”

At the end of the video, Frankie shows the vegan dish, adding:” Wooo. I’m a chef.”

Frankie Grande’s vegan journey

Frankie went vegan back in 2019, after admitting dairy products such as whey protein made him feel sick. 

In an interview with Hollywoodlife, he said: “I eat whatever I want as long as it’s vegan. I would be sick pretty much all the time because I wasn’t careful about what I was eating. 

“So now I can literally just say, is it vegan? If the answer is yes, I will eat it. Indiscriminately. Pad Thai, tofu pad Thai is my new favorite. And then all of the vegan desserts. If it’s vegan and it’s dessert, I’ll eat the whole thing.”

Is Arana Grande vegan?

Many reports suggest Frankie’s sister Ariana Grande is also vegan.

Despite promoting a ‘full plant-based, whole food diet’ in the past, she is not 100 percent vegan. 

Fans blasted her last year after she promoted a Starbucks drink that contained egg whites.

The celeb posted a photo of herself with the drink and tagged #trythesoyversion – only for the company to confirm it was impossible to make the drink vegan.
