Vegan desserts are one of our favourite parts of being plant-based!
Whilst many vegans will tell you that switching diet has helped with their health and fitness, it’s equally valid to look for sweet treats and indulgences as part of a plant-based lifestyle. Sometimes, though, it’s possible to combine the two – impossibly flavoursome snacks made up of seeds, pulses, fruits, nuts and other highly nutritious ingredients!
There’s such a wide variety of vegan desserts that it’s often difficult to know where to start so we’ve compiled a handy list of our favourite recipes below. From classic cakes to slightly more unusual options, we’ve tried to cover a little something for everyone!
These mini strawberry cheesecakes are nearly as pleasing on the eye as they are the tongue! This recipe, created by Wallflower Kitchen, is perfect for creating a sharing plate for people to nibble on if you’re hosting a party. Or, if you fancy, to keep all to yourself!
Nothing says ‘dessert’ like decadent vegan chocolate and ice cream, right? This Double Chocolate Sundae is sure to leave a lasting impression on your guests – for all the right reasons.
The easy-to-prepare parfait is a wholesome and satisfying after-dinner option which allows you to tick off a fair few items from Dr Greger’s Daily Dozen checklist! One of the simplest vegan desserts on our list, and also one of the most delicious.
This homemade ice cream recipe is one of our favourite vegan desserts. The unusual twist on this iconic dessert makes this ice cream even more enjoyable, if you ask us!
If you’re looking for a gluten-free vegan dessert, we recommend this one very highly. Gluten free, soy free, nut free, yeast free… but certainly not taste free! The richness of this dessert is particularly becoming so we warned that, once you’ve made this once, you’ll almost certainly be coming back for more time and again!
This divine chocolate avocado cream pie is a raw vegan dessert for the ages! Packed with nutritious ingredients (including walnuts, dates, cashews, avocados and coconut milk), this pie is enough to make us salivate just by thinking about it!
Whilst this Baked Apple Charlotte can be served either warm or cold, we prefer it straight out of the oven and covered in lavish amounts of piping hot vegan custard. It’s a wonderful pudding which will leave you feeling warm both inside and out!
A dessert that combines sweetness, creaminess and a biscuit layer? Yes please. A classic Banoffee Pie always goes down a treat because it ticks every box. This vegan take on the beloved English classic won’t disappoint.
Carrot cake is (understandably) one of the most popular cakes, which makes it the perfect sweet treat if you’re trying to wow guests. This version is somewhat guilt-free, as it’s made without flour or refined sugar. It definitely does not compromise on flavour, so don’t worry.
Do you like a dessert with a fruity twist? This Banana Split recipe is a must-try. Complete with warm caramelised banana, peanut butter ice cream and fresh fruits, it’s impossible not to love it.
