Whether you’ve been a vegan for years, are only starting out, or you aren’t a vegan and just want a healthy treat, many vegan dessert recipes can seem daunting at first.

 

Store-bought baked goods and desserts aren’t always guaranteed vegan, and they often far more processed anyway.

 

Make enough to share, whip up a snack to serve one, or save leftovers for later.

 

From baked to blended to frozen, there’s a plant-based dessert out there for every baking aptitude.There’s also a flavor for everyone, whether you love chocolate, peanut butter, or fruity desserts.

 

Reduce label-reading headaches by making these homemade vegan desserts! All with five ingredients or less, they’re guaranteed frustration-free.

 

1.Banana Ice Cream

 

The process is simple for the base ice cream. Slice and freeze ripened bananas, then blend once completely frozen. Add liquid as needed to get the bananas nice and creamy.

 

Favorite recipe variations include peanut butter (or other nut butter) options, very berry additions (a cup of frozen berries and some vanilla), and a coffee version (salt, instant coffee, and vanilla).

2.Flourless Brownies

 

Mastering the perfect brownie is always a struggle, but with only three ingredients? These plant-based and protein-filled brownies are just as easy as they are tasty.

 

 Blending the ingredients in a food processor reduces lumps, but it’s not necessary

 

Bananas, almond butter (or any other smooth nut butter), and cocoa powder make a dense and chocolatey treat that’s quick to mix and only takes about twenty minutes to bake.

3.Grain Free Vegan Chocolate Fudge Cookies

 

A fudgy cookie that no one will believe is vegan! These plant-based fudge dollops eliminated the need for white sugar by incorporating maple syrup and naturally sweet bananas.

 

Combining a ripe banana, cocoa powder, peanut butter, and maple syrup delivers a fudgy and soft cookie that bakes up in about fifteen minutes.

 

The Pretty Bee even adds a pinch of large-flake sea salt to the top for a decadent salted fudge taste. With all the cocoa and peanut butter, the banana flavor mostly disappears.

4.Peanut Butter Cookies

 

You’ll need a food processor for these 3-ingredient cookies, but they’re worth the cleanup. A traditional peanut butter cookie with sweet and salty notes delivers maximum dessert fulfillment!

 

The basic recipe features three main ingredients, but the peanut butter base is flexible for add-ins like chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut, or even cocoa powder for a chocolate infusion.

 

5-Minute Vegan Chocolate Pudding

 

Tofu, cocoa, sugar, and plant-based milk make a quick chocolate dessert.

Not only does this recipe pack a ton of protein, but it’s also similar in texture to store-bought pudding. This is a simple and tasty treat for sharing with friends, whether they’re plant-based or not.

The rich chocolate flavor overpowers the tofu while added plant milk gives it a creamier texture. Silken tofu is the key to a smoothly set pudding.

Save this rich treat for dessert, or serve it up for a fun breakfast alternative. Top with coconut whipped cream for the ultimate presentation.

Note* We recommend swapping the granulated sugar out for honey or maple syrup for a slightly healthier treat!
