What better time of year to enjoy some delicious vegan Easter desserts?! Whether you’re looking for a quick and easy treat, a no-bake, child-friendly dessert, or something a little more extravagant to impress your guests, this post has it all. With over 30 recipes to choose from, you’re sure to find one that you love!
It’s been feeling so Spring-like in Scotland recently! It’s still absolutely freezing but the sunny days and blue skies have really got me feeling like Spring is on its way. The days are lasting a little longer too which I have been loving.
As Spring is in the air, I’ve been thinking a lot about Easter. And because my blog is a vegan dessert blog, it made sense to create a post all about vegan Easter desserts.
I’ve teamed up with some other food bloggers to bring you this post. I’ve tried to include as much of a variety as possible so that you can get your bake on, no matter your skill level! This post has something for everyone: No bake treats that you can make with children, super on-theme desserts, and treats that require a little more time and effort to make.
I hope you like this post and if you make any of these recipes at home, please do let me know- I would love to hear from you. If you’d like to see some savoury dishes, check out my Easter dinner recipes. Enjoy! xo
