Enjoy desserts after supper or anytime to satisfy your sweet tooth in a healthy way, without going off your diet. The more dessert options you have, the easier it will be to stay on your diet...and to reap all the health benefits of being a vegan. As well, you'll feel good knowing that no animal products were utilized to make these treats. Many people do become vegans because they detest cruelty to animals.
Animal products often contain hormones and avoiding these hormones is yet another reason why people decide to go for a vegan lifestyle. The meat supply and milk supply have changes and modern, non-organic production techniques for meat and milk do tend to utilize hormones which may impact human health also. If you want a purer way to eat, a vegan diet may be right for you. However, you'll need a lot of variety in your diet to stay healthy. Therefore, we've chosen no-bake vegan dessert recipes which feature lots of different ingredients. All ingredients are wholesome. One recipe requires a little sugar, but, all in all, these are incredibly simple recipes and very wholesome.
Without further ado, let's discuss seven dessert ideas which are not complicated recipes...and which almost anyone can prepare quickly! We think you'll have fun making them and have even more fun eating them. Let's start with some fruit kebabs with a creamy, fruity dip...
1.) Fruit Kebabs with Fruity Dip
To make fruit kebabs, just wash up fruit, cut it into chunks and thread it on wooden kebab skewers. It's a bit more festive than choosing fruit from a plate or bowl! To make the dip, which is vegan, no-bake and so simple to prepare, add a cup of raw cashews which have been soaked in half a cup of non-dairy milk substitute - almond milk will work well for this recipe.
Next, add half of cup of pitted cherries. They may be frozen or fresh. The last ingredients you'll need for this fruity dessert dip are one teaspoon of genuine vanilla extract and two to three tablespoons of your favorite vegan sweeteners. We like syrup of coconut nectar.
Blend until smooth and serve with the fruit kebabs.
2.) Make a Magical Mango-flavored Smoothie
A smoothie is so sweet after a lighter supper, and it's perfect for summertime when the weather is warm, and something cooler is so welcome and refreshing. However, this famous smoothie recipe will make a great dessert any time of the year, and it's also a good choice for breakfast.
To prepare it, pour one and a half cups of orange juice in a clean blender carafe. Add half a cup of water, as well as one-quarter cup of avocado and half a teaspoon of lime zest which has been grated. As well, add two cups of mango which is frozen. One teaspoon of maple syrup should also be added.
To prepare this smoothie, just blend up the ingredients until they are creamy-smooth. Then, enjoy a tall glass. Usually, it takes about a minute of blending to get this recipe to the ideal consistency.
This smoothie will make a great dip, too, although it's not super-thick. You could dip a vegan carbohydrate in it, such as a cookie or cracker in it to access some tropical flavor or use it as a topping on something. This recipe is very versatile.
3.) Make a Luscious, No-bake Key Lime Pie

For the filling, you'll need one and a half avocados, which have been pitted, as well as peeled. Also, you will need three-quarters of a cup of the meat of a coconut which is young.

As well, you will need one-quarter of a cup of agave liquid (raw) to add sweetness. Lastly, you'll need a couple of tablespoons of the juice of a Key lime.
To make your crust, place the flakes of coconut and the dates (drain them first) into your food processor and blend until they are compact. Then, press them into your eight-inch pie pan.
