10 Delicious Vegan Treats for the Holidays with Matcha Ice Cream Cakes, Coconut Balls, Lemon Cheesecake and Apple Roses
Are you guys excited for the holidays? I sure am..because more free time = more time for food. Also it’s totally okay to indulge in all those sweets when you’re sharing with family & friends, right?!

To provide some ideas, I’ve compiled my favorite vegan dessert recipes in one post. All of them are vegan (so dairy-free and egg-free) and some of them are gluten-free like the Coconut Matcha Ice Cream Cakes, Coconut Balls, Raw Cocoa Avocado Tartelette or the Raw Cocoa Coconut Pomegranate Tartelette. Four of the recipes are no-bake: Coconut Matcha Ice Cream Cakes, Coconut Balls and the two Tartelettes.

Some of the treats mentioned in this post are absolute classics like the 3-Ingredient Apple Strudel, which I’ve made 20+ times, while others are so decadent that you want to eat it everyday but maaaayybee you shouldn’t (Lemon Cheesecake & Chocolate Lovers Cake).

I defiantly see (and LOVE) a bit of a chocolate theme going on here. And know the good stuff :) I don't think I remember you coconut Panna Cotta but that sounds awesome and easy! These would all be perfect for devouring with family while decorating a tree to christmas tunes, doesn't that sound perfect!

Thank you so much, Natalie! I guess one could see that I love chocolate and coconut. The coconut panna cotta recipe is an older one but it's so good and very festive too. I actually plan on making it again - with a new twist, of course. It's one of ~300 ideas I have on my to-do-list. waaah :D

Bianca, I noticed that when using a butter in your recipes you list Earth Balance and Alsan. Which one of the Earth Balance butters do you use? I'm asking because all of the Earth Balance butters are salted, Alsan is not salted. I live in US and we don't have Alsan here or if we do I didn't find it. So I used Earth Balance butter for my Christmas baking last year and the salt in the butter altered the flavor of the cookies quite a bit. I have been searching for a salt free vegan butter but no luck so far. If you know something that I don't know please let me know. Thank you for all the great recipes!!!
