This week’s five featured vegan recipes all follow in the theme of sweet flavors, from indulgent chocolate cakes to healthy raw cheesecake and pasta with creamy sweet corn pesto.
Since many people think that eating vegan would mean giving up the pleasures of sweets and cakes, this post is proof that it’s far from the truth!
Life is all about balance, and while there are plenty of healthy vegan recipes to enjoy, there should also be times for indulgence…
Vegan Petit Fours
Looking at these pretty little treats it’s hard to believe they’re vegan! Perfect treat together with a cup of tea or coffee, they make for a great quick snack or sweet treat when inviting guests over for tea.
Raw Plum Banana Cheesecake
Raw desserts are perfect for those hot summer days, as they don’t require any time in the oven but usually consists of soaking, blending and freezing.
This one even happens to be quite healthy for you, full of fruit, juice and nuts!
Frozen Banana Chocolate Cream Tart
Another frozen recipe that’s perfect for hot August days, this frozen banana chocolate tart is a lot healthier than it sounds and looks, so you can easily treat yourself to two slices rather than just once!
Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake
Perhaps one of the most chocolatey chocolate cakes you will ever have, this one will appeal to every chocoholic, whether they’re vegan or not.
The strawberries also gives the sweet heavy chocolate a refreshing kick, making it a perfectly balanced sweet indulgence.
Pasta with Creamy Sweet Corn Pesto
Just because sweet is this week’s theme, that doesn’t mean every recipe has to be a dessert. Sweet flavors can be great even in savory meals, like this pasta for example.
Just make sure your corn is gmo-free and organically grown, it makes a huge difference for both the environment, your health and the flavors!
