No matter how old you are or eating habits, we all experience sweet cravings from time to time. For vegans, it’s also the same although they get their sweet cravings done the vegan way as vegan desserts do not contain milk nor dairy products like yogurt, butter, cream, cheese, milk permeate or milk chocolate, eggs, honey and animal gelatin. And since most traditional or popular cakes or desserts contain them, vegan desserts are creatively prepared in a different way, without milk and eggs.
Here are some examples of vegan desserts so you can go beyond the usual sorbet and fruit salad.
Fluffy one bowl sugar cookies
