5 Decadent Vegan Desserts

One common misconception about a vegan diet is that it’s about depriving yourself. This doesn’t have to be true at all! It’s easy as (vegan) pie to whip up cruelty-free desserts that even your omnivore friends will drool over.

When I think “decadent dessert,” chocolate almost immediately springs to mind, so several of these desserts are deliciously chocolatey. When I tell folks that I’m vegan, they often marvel that I had the willpower to give up chocolate. In fact, many good-quality chocolates don’t contain any animal products at all. You don’t need milk to make dark chocolate, and there are even companies that make vegan milk chocolates, if that’s your preference.

There are lots of vegan chocolates out there, you just need to do a little bit of label-reading to make sure the chocolate you’re buying doesn’t contain milk, milk fat, butter fat, or other animal ingredients that chocolate makers sometimes sneak in. Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips are vegan, for example, and Endangered Species dark chocolate bars are vegan (and delicious!)

Does all of this talk about chocolate have you craving some dessert? Here are 5 recipes for delicious sweet treats that don’t call for animal ingredients!
