Vegan Sweet Treats To Try at Home

With veganurary just around the corner and for you sweet tooth lovers like myself who want someone to look forward to at the end of the night with a cheeky little premixed cocktail, then this article is for you.

The best part of these desert choices is that they are so easy to make and you could even get a batch sorted ready for you when you get home every evening, because, why the hell not?


These are surely everyone’s guilty pleasures and you can never just have one. Nailing this recipe will have everyone around you nagging the next time you can make it. They are also an easy way to show your appreciation for someone or one of your vegan besties.

To get the right texture, you’ll need two flax eggs, which are so easy to make if you have a coffee grinder or something close. If you want to add some chocolate chips, have a look at what your local shop offers in the free from isle.

Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

It’s thick, lightly sweet, and helps the mix to be amazingly smooth and creamy; you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between dairy ice cream.

There are pretty much vegan alternatives to everything and ice cream is no exception. It uses cashews and often xanthan gum but if you have an allergy, I would recommend coconut.

Be careful when adding your peppermint extract, as it can be quite strong, so keep tasting until it’s up to your preferences.

Key Lime Pie Bars

Condensed milk and lime juice combine to make a very creamy key lime pie (or bar) that sets without baking. Soak the cashews to achieve the same texture—firm but creamy. If you like to plan, try soaking the night before or if you want to speed things up, try boiling and soaking them for a few hours.

Once they’ve softened, blend them to a thick and creamy consistency, then add all the good stuff like your lime juice, zest, syrup, coconut oil, coconut milk and vanilla extract, all down to personal preference. Freeze solid and then enjoy as a cheeky little snack, perfect for summertime.

Vegan Cheesecake

There weren’t many options available not too long ago for making vegan cheesecake. You were forced to use cashews or attempt an agar agar no-bake recipe.

But you can make a dreamy, dense, and incredibly rich cheesecake without even a hint of dairy these days, thanks to the widespread availability of vegan cream cheese (found in most grocery stores).

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Another perfect thing to know is that just in time for a new birthday year, you could make one for all your vegan friends, paired with some ready-to-drink cocktails.

Every delicious chocolate cake I’ve ever baked has called for a very thin batter along with coffee or hot water. Its use of a cup of boiling water made me anticipate that it would be incredibly light and extremely moisturising. I always use coffee instead of just regular water, which intensifies the flavour of the chocolate.

Additionally, vegan buttermilk made with vinegar and dairy-free milk is included in this recipe. This preserves the crumb’s tenderness and adds a layer of creaminess.
