Easy Vegan Recipes To Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

How is it possible to make a satisfyingly delicious dessert without eggs, cream or milk chocolate?

Vegans with sweet tooths know how to make this happen. The whole egg problem? Piece of cake–no pun intended. There are a number of super-easy ways you can replace eggs with vegan substitutes in dessert recipes that require eggs.

And there are so many other vegan tricks to make the whole dessert thing happen without a single animal product: tofu and avocados for a creamy texture in pies and milkshakes, for example. Healthy sugar substitutes like agave nectar, Stevia, and honey. Cocoa powder, vegan cream cheese, and other secrets of the trade.

What I love about vegan desserts (and vegan cooking in general) is the sheer challenge of making something taste knock-your-socks-off good without having to rely on the usual bag of tricks that make something taste really good in a decadent way. Such as shameless amounts of butter, or a whole container of soft cream cheese.

So get your vegan on and still indulge your dessert cravings in a (somewhat) healthy way. Below is a compilation of some awesome vegan dessert recipes pulled from all over the web:
