Why Vegan Desserts Need to be Part of Your Life

When that sweet-tooth craving hits, the first thing that we think of reaching for probably is the furthest thing from vegan. Let’s be real: sometimes we just want a piece of cake that has about a pound of delicious butter, milk and eggs in it. If the idea of vegan desserts scares you, it shouldn’t! Vegan desserts are especially decadent and contain whole food and raw ingredients; they can even be more satisfying than our usual indulgences. Best of all, they’re cruelty-free, and everyone can enjoy them!

Here are a few vegan-friendly dessert options you’ll definitely want to try:

Dairy Free Coffee Ice Cream

Vegan doesn’t mean complex! Chances are, you already have these four ingredients sitting in your fridge. Have five minutes and a blender? Yep, you can make this.
