10 Vegan Christmas Dessert Images In A Grid

When I first went vegan a few years ago, I really struggled to find a good dessert for after Christmas dinner. I hadn’t learned how to bake vegan yet, so I relied on ready-made options from the supermarket. At that time. my options were dairy-free soy ice cream and accidentally vegan biscuits.

Fortunately, vegan Christmas desserts have come a long way and there are many options to choose from in the shops now. But there are also many other delicious dessert options that are only available homemade, which is why I made this post.

This round-up contains all of my favourite eggless, dairy-free festive desserts, including things such as chocolate Yule log, aqua faba pavlova and macarons, Biscoff cinnamon rolls and no-bake banoffee pie. Simply use the table of contents menu below to jump to your desired dessert.
