Who doesn’t love a good dessert? I know that I do. However, that doesn’t mean that I want to eat anything sweet that I get my hands on. That’s because it’s pretty difficult to find delicious and fairly healthy vegan desserts. But that doesn’t mean that vegans can’t satisfy their sweet tooth. All you have to do is try some of our vegan dessert recipes that can be made in under 30 minutes. From chocolate chia pudding to vegan banana bread, there’s something for anyone.
Chocolate Avocado Mousse
Who doesn’t love to indulge in a creamy and delicious chocolate mousse? It can’t get much better than that, can it? Well, it can. By adding an avocado to the mix and making sure all the ingredients are vegan. Our chocolate avocado mousse only takes 10 minutes to make, and it’s not only super delicious but also filled with nutrients.
To make it, you’ll need 2 ripe avocados, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 cup maple syrup, 1/4 cup almond milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a blender. Then, add the cocoa powder, maple syrup, almond milk, vanilla extract, and salt to the blender. Blend it all together until it’s smooth and creamy. Put the mousse in individual serving dishes, and let it all chill in the refrigerator before serving.
Chocolate Chia Pudding
It’s no secret that chia seeds are a superfood. They are a wonderful source of fiber, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids. Which makes them a great addition to any vegan dish, but especially desserts. One of the easiest and quickest vegan desserts that you can make is chia pudding. In just about 30 minutes you can prepare yourself a treat that is both yummy and nutritious. Here’s the recipe.
To make the pudding, you’ll need 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 cup almond milk, 1/4 cup cocoa powder, 1/4 cup maple syrup, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. In a bowl, whisk together the chia seeds, almond milk, cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or until the mixture has thickened and the chia seeds have absorbed the liquid. You can also prepare the pudding the night before and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Once it’s done, you can serve it with your favorite toppings such as fruits or dark chocolate.
Vegan Banana Bread
Banana bread is one of the most liked desserts out there. It’s comforting, suited for almost any occasion, and even a great snack option. To make our vegan banana bread, you’ll need 3 ripe bananas, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1/2 cup coconut sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a loaf pan.
Mash the ripe bananas in a large bowl with a fork. Add the almond milk, coconut sugar, and vanilla extract. Mix well until the ingredients are fully combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the baking powder, baking soda, salt, and all-purpose flour. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, and mix well. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 25-30 minutes. Lastly, let the bread cool, and it’s ready to be served!
