First, let's dispel some of those vegan dessert myths...
Myth 1 - Vegan Desserts Are Difficult!
If you are trying something different for the first of course it can be difficult.
But making vegan desserts can be just as easy as making regular desserts!
In some cases, it's even easier! For example, when making a vegan cake, all you need to do is combine the wet ingredients and dry ingredients - no need to crack eggs, cream butter and sugar...
You can have a cake ready to go in the oven in under 5 minutes!
Myth 2 - Vegan Desserts Don't Taste Good
There's so many ways you can make vegan desserts taste good, without needing animal products.
Some of the best flavors come from plant-based ingredients after all!
Just think - the best thing about a chocolate dessert is the richness of cocoa combined with the sweetness of sugar.
Ripe fruits are often the star flavor of many desserts - and of course they're 100% vegan too.
And for desserts that typically rely on dairy, there's lots of plant-based ingredients you can use to bring creaminess to a dessert! Nut butters and coconut cream are rich in fats and can recreate that creamy mouth-feel and rich taste - no dairy needed!
Myth 3 - Vegan Desserts Don't Work
Have you ever tried veganising an old recipe? Maybe substituting the eggs for (aquafaba / flaxseed / mashed banana) and using (applesauce / oil / more mashed banana) instead of butter?
Did it turn into a mess?
Yes?! We've all been there!
Here at vegan dessert ideas our recipes are tested and designed to work without animal products. So you don't have to do the guesswork and can simply enjoy delicious homemade desserts - fuss-free!
