Best vegan Christmas desserts

Vegan chocolate cheesecake

Chocolate cheesecake makes for a great crowdpleaser to finish off your festive feast. Top a fudgy Oreo biscuit base with silken tofu and dark chocolate for a rich, plant-based cheesecake.

Vegan blueberry meringue pie

Try this plant-based twist on the classic lemon meringue pie, which still delivers a zesty punch, balanced with flaky, buttery pastry, and a smooth, creamy aquafaba meringue. It’s a unique Christmas dessert sure to go down a storm.

Vegan chocolate mousse

Chocolate mousse is a versatile dessert which works for a number of occasions. Silken tofu is the secret ingredient in this smooth, creamy and totally plant-based chocolate mousse. It’s just as indulgent as the classic version, so everyone at the table will love it, vegan or not.

Vegan sticky toffee pudding

Let warming spices and a rich toffee sauce (made with homemade cashew cream) do the talking with this vegan sticky toffee pudding recipe. Topped with a generous scoop of dairy-free ice cream, non-vegans will love this one too.

Vegan chocolate cupcakes

Bake a batch of plant-based cupcakes and top with a swirl of rich chocolate frosting for a Christmas dessert. To make them even more festive, decorate with gold lustre or red and green candies.

Vegan brownies

Bake a batch of our decadent vegan chocolate brownies for an indulgent treat. Our unique recipe is super chocolaty so vegan and non-vegan friends and family will all love it! Try topping with a vegan-friendly brandy butter or dairy-free ice cream for a Christmas dessert.

Vegan chocolate layer cake

Decent espresso powder is the key to this luxurious vegan chocolate sponge, sandwiched together with indulgent (and butter-free) chocolate buttercream. Decorate with festive cake toppers like sprinkles, gold leaf or even chocolate truffles.
