If you’re following a raw food diet, these raw vegan dessert recipes are just what you need.
They’re sweet, silky smooth, and definitely a treat for your taste buds.
In fact, I’m not sure most people would even know they weren’t eating meat!
That’s the beauty of raw veganism. You don’t have to give up your favorite foods to be raw vegan.
Instead, you can enjoy all of the same favorites with no negative effects on your health.
So if you want something sweet and delicious that doesn’t contain any dairy or eggs, give these raw vegan desserts a look.
1. Raw Vegan Chocolate Mousse
Chocolate mousse is a fun and easy dessert that’s always a hit.
And this recipe makes it silky smooth and creamy.
The best part? It only requires seven ingredients!
And while you may think that there’s no way to keep things vegan, don’t worry, this recipe uses cashew milk for extra richness.
Once you try it, you’ll never go back to store-bought chocolate mousse again.
2. Raw Vegan Banana Pudding
The best vegan desserts are always breakfast worthy, and this recipe is no exception.
With its creamy texture and sweet banana flavor, it’s the perfect way to start your day.
I like to add some nut butter for extra flavor if I can, but you can leave it out if you prefer.
You could also use a few ripe avocados instead of bananas if you have them on hand.
3. Raw Vegan Peanut Butter Balls
I cannot even begin to tell you how insanely good these balls are.
Trust me, once you try them, you’ll never go back to store-bought again.
Like most of the recipes on this list, this one features bacon and coconut oil.
Of course, it also has almond butter for a classic peanut butter taste.
These are great with vanilla ice cream or a drizzle of maple syrup.
Another great idea is to toss in chocolate chips or chopped nuts!
If you want something sweet without all the added sugars, try adding some dried cranberries or chopped walnuts!
4. Raw Vegan Chocolate Truffles
Go ahead and have a chocolate-covered cookie.
Just make these chocolate truffles instead.
These truffles are so indulgent, you’ll want to skip dessert all together.
The filling is made from two parts cashew butter and one part maple syrup.
The result is creamy , nutty, sweet, and extra buttery.
The silky smoothness of the cashews makes this vegan treat so amazingly decadent.
Top them with melted dark chocolate for extra richness !
5. Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
Full disclosure: these aren’t quite raw vegan.
But they’re way more healthy than anything you could buy at the store, and that’s all that matters.
You won’t need to worry about dairy or eggs with these babies.
Instead, you just make a nutty cashew butter for the dough, then add in some cinnamon and vanilla extract for flavor.
The result is light and sweet chocolate chip cookies that taste so good you won’t think they are raw.
These are perfect if you want something low-carb but still have a sweet tooth!
6. Raw Vegan Lemon Bars
These lemon bars are so good, you’ll want to eat them straight from the pan!
The bright and zesty combination of sweet, tart, and tangy is the perfect balance .
And the texture?
They’re like a dream.
Crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
The only thing better than these bars is their base! It’s a simple mixture of dates and almonds that turn into a delicious treat.
7. Raw Vegan Coconut Macaroons
Macaroons are a sweet treat that can be made with any nut, but cashews are the most popular.
I love that they’re dairy-free and have a lovely mild flavor.
I also think they add so much texture to the cookies.
The best part of making raw vegan macaroons is that you can leave out the egg whites and substitute other ingredients like cacao powder or coconut milk if you prefer.
I often use honey when making these, but maple syrup will work well too.
8. Raw Vegan Strawberry Cheesecake
I don’t know what I love more about this cheesecake.
It looks just as gorgeous as it tastes, and it has a light, creamy texture that melts in your mouth.
Plus, it takes only 30 minutes to make – which is great if you want something relatively quick for dessert on a super hot day.
It’s also vegan-friendly and paleo-compliant.
So if you really want to impress your friends who are against raw foods, give this one a try!
9. Raw Vegan Raspberry Sorbet
I’ve been a firm believer in sorbet for years.
It’s the perfect summertime refreshment, and this is such a fun way to serve it.
You can use any vegetable base you like.
I think zucchini would be great with a bit of lemon juice.
I like to add some fresh raspberries just before serving, but they also freeze well.
Just make sure you thaw them out first!
10. Raw Vegan Apple Crisp with Maple and Cinnamon
This apple crisp is a fantastic way to warm up on a cold fall day.
It’s also vegan and gluten-free, so it’s perfect for everyone!
The apples are tender with plenty of crunch.
The maple syrup makes them extra creamy, while the cinnamon adds a nice warm spice.
When you add the pecans, they make this crumble extra hit.
11. Raw Vegan Lemon Cake with Lemon Glaze
Looking for a vegan cake to impress your friends ?
Look no further!
This lemon cake with lemon glaze is the best of both worlds.
It’s moist and fluffy, but it’s also boozy enough that you can feel good about eating it.
Plus, its bright orange color looks gorgeous on any table. It’s impeccably fresh and bright.
12. Easy Raw Chocolate Mousse
I’m sure you’ve had mousse before, but have you ever tried raw chocolate mousse?
This recipe is for you!
It’s an amazingly rich and creamy dessert that will leave you wanting more.
The best part is that it only requires three ingredients: cacao powder, honey, and maple syrup.
If a little extra sweetness can make your life just a little bit easier (and it can!) this dessert will be yours.
