Desserts form to be a very important part of every function, be it a marriage ceremony, a birthday party, or a wedding anniversary. This is why I never miss out to add a dessert or two in every party I arrange at home. Over the years we have seen that the vegan community has increased in its volume; about 40 percent of my friends have adopted a vegan diet lifestyle, either for medical reasons or for religious ones. Taking this in consideration, I do need to add some vegan dishes in the menu too, so that they can also enjoy the meals. When it comes to main dishes and appetizers, it is quite easy to feature vegan recipes, as cutting down meat and adding vegetables would suffice the purpose. But when it comes to vegan desserts, it’s quite tough for me to decide the desserts to be added in the menu; the reason is quite obvious; most of the desserts that are featured in the gatherings contain either butter or eggs or both; so it becomes a touch difficult to come up with vegan desserts.
Fortunate enough for me that over the years I have come up with some vegan dessert recipes that are perfect for any occasion. Do try these simple and easy vegan dessert recipes whenever you arrange some function at your place and let your vegan friends enjoy a perfect dessert experience.
Chocolate Tofu Pie is a delicious and creamy vegan dessert that is great for any of your favorite occasions. Tofu, cocoa powder, white sugar, cider vinegar, and vanilla extract are some of the ingredients that add a lot of taste to this pie. I served this pie on my birthday party last year and I was surprised to see that not only the vegetarians but also the non-vegetarians were in love with. The great thing is that you can come up with this amazing chocolate tofu pie in less than an hour.
Cupcakes always attract the attention of the food lovers, especially the kids. This made me think that there must be some vegan cupcakes; luckily, I got the recipe for vegan cupcakes and served my vegan guests with these cupcakes. Almond milk, white sugar, coconut oil, and apple cider vinegar are some of the ingredients that make these cupcakes quite healthy and tasty. The great thing is that you can apply any of your favorite frostings over the cupcakes, though I would suggest you to use cream cheese frosting over the cupcakes. What if I tell you that you can come up with these delicious cupcakes in just about 25 minutes or so?
Carrot cake is so popular among the food lovers and this is why I don’t forget to feature it in the menu of every party I have at my home. For the vegan version, I made a bit of replacements and ended up making a delicious vegan carrot cake. Whole wheat flour, soy flour, cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar, currants, and almonds are some of the ingredients that are combined in the recipe to make this cake a treat to the taste buds. Unlike most of the vegan dessert recipes, this cake takes a bit of time to get ready, so you need to be patient; but the taste is so amazing that you will regret the time invested for baking the cake.
I was earlier talking about the fact that it’s quite hard to find vegan dessert recipes; let me make another addition, it’s even harder to look for vegan cookies. Last year, I was on a trip to London where I was able to find the recipe for these delicious vegan oatmeal cookies. These cookies contain no butter or egg, while cranberries, coconut, cinnamon, and chocolate add the perfect taste you have always craved for. What I love about these cookies is the inclusion of rolled oats that make these cookies quite healthy. I make a large batch of these cookies and then store them in an airtight jar so that I can enjoy them for several weeks. Honestly speaking, I found them to be quite better than the ones sold in the market; healthier and more delicious. The great thing is that you can come up with these cookies in just about 25 minutes or so.
Cinnamon is one such ingredient that has been known for its health benefits for centuries; this made me think of making some dessert-snack with it and let myself enjoy a perfect afternoon. When I tried the recipe for the very first time, I couldn’t do everything to perfection; but later on, I got better with it and now I do include these strips on every party I arrange at my home. What I love about this recipe is that all the ingredients are available at the home so I don’t need to visit the market to make these strips; and secondly these delicious strips can be made in just about half an hour or so. Do prepare these strips at the very next party you arrange at your home and let your guests enjoy some delicious snack.
Chocolate Brownies have always been quite popular over the last decade or two and are seen on almost all the formal and informal functions; last month, I invited some guests over my place and the interesting thing was that almost all of them were vegans. Initially, I thought that I should feature brownies, but considering the food choice of my guests, I decided to come up with vegan brownies instead. I served the guests with these brownies and they simply loved it. The great thing is that it didn’t take more than 60 minutes to come up with these delicious vegan brownies.
Vegan Dessert recipes are a touch tough to find but the fact is that they taste so delicious that even the non-vegans love to feature these in their parties. Do try the above mentioned vegan dessert recipes and let yourself enjoy some delicious desserts.
