Following a plant-based or vegan diet isn’t all vegetables and salads! Believe it or not, there are delicious recipes for easy vegan chocolate desserts!
When I first started a plant-based diet, I was worried that I wasn’t going to be able to enjoy chocolate-y delicious desserts anymore. What about holidays and birthdays, what would I do?
With a love for chocolate, you can imagine how I felt about this.
Then, I realized that the trick was to learn how to make delicious plant-based and vegan chocolate dessert recipes without dairy and with healthier ingredients.
The recipes I started to make were chocolatey, creamy, sweet, and amazing. I make chocolate vegan recipes often now. I’m sharing a list of my favorite vegan chocolate dessert recipes in hopes that you’ll love them too!
Sometimes, I’ll just add some dairy-free chocolate chips to my oatmeal, or have a quick chocolate protein smoothie when the desire hits. When I have more time or it’s a special occasion, these are my go-to chocolate vegan and plant-based recipes.
I’m here to tell you that there are healthier ways to enjoy our beloved chocolate treats!
