36 Vegan Christmas Desserts

Looking for some delicious vegan Christmas desserts to enjoy on the big day? Look no further! I’ve compiled a list of 36 of the best festive puds to help you out. On this page, you’ll find recipes for Yule logs, aqua faba pavlova, macarons, cheesecake, cookies, cinnamon rolls and more!

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

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

The best vegan Christmas desserts

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. Enjoy!

1. Mince pies

2. Chocolate Yule log

If you’ve never made a Yule log before, this one might take a little bit of practice. There’s definitely some skill required to get a crack-free roll but any tears can be easily covered with the creamy ganache. It’s a show-stopping dessert that makes a beautiful Christmas centrepiece.

3. Gingerbread House

Decorated to look like a log cabin, this vegan gingerbread house is a great Christmas project if you fancy something a little more challenging. It even includes a Biscoff biscuit door.
