The Best Vegan Summer Desserts are healthy, delicious, and easy desserts that will keep you cool and satisfied all summer long.
Hello, summer. I didn’t know you had so many delicious and healthy desserts! I cannot believe that it’s almost August. My niece starts school in two weeks. I saw the first apples at the farmer’s market this weekend. Where did the summer go?
It took a while for summer to heat up but when it did, we were sweating and melting here. And, I’ve cooled off a lot with desserts and popsicles. Well, that and cranking up the air conditioning. A girl's gotta survive, right?
So, let’s talk about dessert. I know that Christmas and the holidays get a bad rap when it comes to eating a lot of calories, gaining weight, and overdoing it. But, I feel like summer is worse. What about you? I think I actually eat more dessert and drink more in the summer than I do at Christmas time. There are more parties, casual BBQs, and random get-togethers. Plus, with fruit in season, these pies, cookies, and dessert taste so much better!
These vegan summer desserts are a healthy way to indulge in dessert. Seriously, there are so many delicious dairy-free ice creams here. I’m so excited to try these desserts. Plus, you don't have to be a vegan to enjoy these recipes…I'm not. Luckily, I still have at least a month left of summer to enjoy them!
This healthy apple crisp is the perfect fall dessert. It's filled with good for you ingredients like fresh apples, oats, and pecans, and it's naturally sweetened with maple syrup. It's easy to make, everyone loves it, and it's ready in just over an hour!
Amaretto Peach Cobbler is the ultimate summer dessert. Sweet peaches are tossed in amaretto liqueur and topped with a (grain-free!) almond flour and coconut sugar topping. You would NEVER know this is a healthy dessert recipe!
Peanut butter banana ice cream is the best healthy, dairy-free ice cream around. It's made with only 2 ingredients and you probably have all of them in your kitchen right now. Go on, you know you want a bowl of this banana nice cream!
This Chocolate Blackberry Crumble is so good you'll NEVER know it's a healthy dessert recipe. The grain-free topping resembles your favorite traditional crumble topping but it's made without oats. It's crazy delicious.
Vanilla Cashew Butter Cups for the big-time healthy dessert win! This delicious (and easy to make!) spin-off of peanut butter cups are as decadent as the original but made with only 5 ingredients and they're all good for you.
These delicious Blueberry Jam Bars are like a blueberry crumble or blueberry crisp formed into little bars. They are made with an oatmeal crust and loaded with fresh blueberries. It's a healthier dessert recipe that can easily be made vegan + gluten-free + refined grain free. You will LOVE it!
This pretty pink Vegan Strawberry Cream Pie is as delicious as it gets. It's made with creamy strawberry cashew custard and a coconut crust. It's a naturally dairy-free + gluten-free + paleo dessert recipe that everyone will LOVE!
Too. Much. Deliciousness. Haha, but in all seriousness, these are FABULOUS looking desserts! I have to try the peanut butter ice cream, coconut yogurt cheesecake, chocolate banana ice cream, and strawberry crisp!
Hahaha bring them all on!!!
Amazing list! Ice cream is the best dessert for summer days but having a sweeth tooth always makes me crave for all kinds of these dessert. Yum~
