If you’re looking for some tasty vegan desserts to impress then you’ve come to the right place! This post contains 30 sweet treats that are sure to WOW your friends and family!
If you’ve been vegan for any length of time, I’m sure you can understand the disappointment felt when you hear that *sorbet* is the vegan dessert option whenever you’re eating outside of your home. Now don’t get me wrong, I do love me some sorbet and I don’t mean to sound ungrateful, but it’s not something I particularly look forward to as an after dinner dessert.
When it comes to dessert, go hard or go home is what I say. Part of the reason I created this blog was to show that you can still make fun, delicious, creative desserts without animal products. And this post is all about making vegan desserts to impress- whether that’s to impress yourself, your family or your friends!
The desserts I’ve included in this post are my most popular, decadent, show-stopping desserts that are sure to wow anyone who tries them. Most are recreations of my old non-vegan favourite treats.
I hope you like the recipes and if you make any of them at home, please leave a comment to let me know how it goes. Enjoy!
Vegan desserts to impress
I’ve split the 30 recipes up into categories. The categories are: Meringue-based desserts, buns & cakes, biscuits & cookies, cheesecakes, pies & tarts, and brownies & bars. Simply click on the pink ‘get the recipe button’ to be taken straight to the recipe page.
First up are the meringue-based vegan desserts. The recipes use aquafaba instead of egg whites to create a similar taste and texture to the traditional versions.
This eggless pavlova tastes just like the classic, with a crispy outer shell and a chewy, marshmallowy centre. Top with lots of dairy-free whipped cream and fresh fruit.
This tasty treat is not just for Christmas! A thin chocolate roll cake filled with dairy-free vanilla buttercream and covered with creamy chocolate ganache. A truly show-stopping dessert that is sure to be loved by all.
This is one of my favourite vegan desserts to impress any new vegans! It's just like the retro school cake from childhood- a fluffy vanilla sponge cake topped with simple icing and colourful sprinkles.
This is one of my most raved about blog recipes to date! 3 layers of cinnamon and vanilla sponge filled and covered with decadent Biscoff icing. It's great for any occasion but is especially popular as a birthday cake.
These dainty, bite-sized lemon loaves are surprisingly easy to make. All you need is some simple kitchen ingredients and a mini loaf tin. These are perfect for children's birthday parties or afternoon tea.
A moist, 2-layer chocolate cake paired with an ultra rich and decadent chocolate fudge frosting. This is an easy but impressive dessert to make if you're not confident with your cake decorating skills- just slap the icing on and you're good to go!
When I think of my favourite vegan desserts to impress, this trifle always comes to mind. It's made up of layers of homemade vegan vanilla sponge cake, custard, whipped cream, strawberry jam and fresh strawberries. You can even use shop-bought versions of the cake, custard and cream if you want to speed up the process.
Pizza Hut's cookie dough was my absolute favourite dessert before I went vegan so I recreated it without the eggs or dairy. It's crisp at the edges, with a soft, gooey centre, and it's best served warm with vanilla ice cream.
If you love large chunky, bakery-style cookies, then you'll love these! They're full of decadent chunks of both vegan white and dark chocolate and are sure to be one of your new favourite vegan desserts to impress.
This is one of my favourite ever no-bake cheesecake recipes. It has a classic Digestive biscuit base and the filling is full of fresh strawberry pieces. The sweet, sticky strawberry topping takes it to the next level!
Grab some vegan marshmallows and crispy rice cereal and give these chewy Rice Krispie treats a go! These are fun to make with children because there's only a few steps involved and there's no baking required.
