Many people will be thinking about going vegan this January. They might be starting a healthy eating plan and dessert may be far from their minds. However I don’t think it’s good to deny yourself a sweet treat every now and then. Personally, if I have an occasional treat it helps me not to fall far from the wagon. So if you are starting a vegan eating plan and you still want treats every so often then there are a few here that will hopefully keep you going.

Apple Crumble Cheesecake – My Ted giving his seal of approval

Apple Crumble Cheesecake might sound like a strange combination but this one works so well. When I first mentioned to my husband and son that I was making this dish I think they thought I’d gone mad. Then they tasted it and realised it was super yummy. If you love cheesecake and crumble then this could be the vegan dessert for you.

Nan’s Homemade Rice Pudding is a slow cooked dessert. It’s a great way to cook a dessert. I have to be honest, this is the first dessert I cooked in the slow cooker and I was unsure of how the slow cooker would cook rice. It took a long time but the rice cooked perfectly and the pudding was delicious.

Vegan Toffee Crisp

Vegan Toffee Crisp is a delicious way to enjoy a cereal bar. As it’s covered with a layer of smooth dark chocolate I thought this would make a yummy dessert. It could be eaten with coconut cream and maple syrup too. The dessert can be made in advance of a meal and stored in a fridge too.

Vegan Banana Split is one dessert that many children and grown ups will love. For me, this sweet treat is an eighties classic and one I have fond memories of eating as a child. However the one I ate as a kid wasn’t vegan but in my memory was yummy. But not as tasty as this little treat. It’s simple and easy to do. Hopefully kids and grown ups will enjoy it as much as the eighties classic.

My Nan’s Slow Cooked Rice Pudding

Vegan Spicy Fruit Pies are the best dessert for all those who love an apple pie. These pies are a wonderful winter warmer. They can be eaten with coconut cream and maple syrup. When I bake these moreish pies it makes me feel very warm and cosy inside. So that’s why I think this dish is a perfect treat for a vegan January.

All of these desserts can be made in advance of a meal and eaten on the same day or the next day too. They are all very easy desserts to cook and we enjoy all of these treats. If you are serving these to friends and family they will never know that they are vegan. Trust me, they will just eat and devour and so will you. However you decide to eat these desserts, as always, enjoy.
