But back to the desserts…I’ve got some seriously incredible vegan Christmas dessert recipes for you.
I’ve gathered the very best sweets from some incredible bloggers to bring you just the good stuff! This is not a collection of 100+ Christmas dessert recipes that will take you hours to sort through. I’ve already done all the sorting, so let’s just get right to it, shall we? 🙂
The Best Vegan Christmas Desserts
Let’s start this off with the absolute BEST cranberry orange bread ever. Why is it the best? It’s perfectly moist, naturally sweetened using dates, with bites of tart throughout, and made using wholesome ingredients. This decadent dessert is actually almost healthy!! Is there anything better than a guilt free treat that doesn’t taste “healthy”? Nah, didn’t think so.
Gingerbread cheesecake dip is creamy and rich, filled with warm holiday flavours and is the perfect dessert for your holiday menu. Dunk your favourite fruits, ginger snap cookies, or graham crackers. Or seriously, just grab a spoon and dig in! You do not want to miss this one. It’s unbelievable how flavourful a cheesecake sans cheese is. Try it, trust me!
This surprisingly healthy vegan cranberry ice cream has a tart and refreshing flavor. Cranberry sauce is blended into a non-dairy base of milk, cashews, maple syrup, plus a small amount of oatmeal for that extra creamy element! Ice cream may not be your typical choice for a Christmas dessert, but I can definitely get on board with a healthy Cranberry ice cream! Just think how great this would be on a freshly baked pie.
Buttery soft, vegan almond flour cookies are salty sweet, melt in your mouth, bursts of deliciousness. They require only a few simple ingredients and ready in less than 20 minutes. This is a great last minute option that comes together super quickly if you’re reading this the day before Christmas and forgot to do your baking!
Chocolate Cranberry Bundt Cake is an easy and festive holiday dessert. It’s decadent and fudgy, and studded with dark chocolate chips and tart fresh cranberries. It’s also vegan and comes together in just one bowl! I love a one bowl recipe, especially one that looks this good!
Lemon cranberry muffins are a little sweet with bites of tart in every mouthful. Made using wholesome ingredients, simple methods, and just perfect for the holidays. Are you noticing a cranberry trend? I’m a sucker for cranberries this time of year, and especially love treats using fresh cranberries. If you love a tart dessert, you definitely need to try this one.
Shortbread cookies are a family favourite, especially during the holiday season. This dairy free version is just as scrumptious as the original! Get your kiddos involved with this one, they will absolutely love sprinkling these delights with candy sprinkles. BONUS! These tasty treats double as DIY vegan Christmas gifts for family and friends!
This healthy gluten-free vegan carrot cake absolutely blew my mind with its lemony cream cheese frosting and cranberries hidden inside. Despite its fancy facade, this carrot cake recipe is pretty easy, requiring only 10 ingredients. I’m definitely up for a simple and incredibly delicious dessert!
Mini quinoa sweet potato muffins are sweet, delicious, and loaded with nutrients for a guilt free treat the whole family will enjoy. Perfect for fall or during the holiday season and flavoured with apple sauce and cinnamon. A little boost of nutrition is always welcome on a well balanced dessert table.
Chewy, extra soft and so delicious, these Gingerbread Truffles are like little super tasty power-treats perfect for the Holidays. These would be a welcome addition to your dessert table, but would also make a great breakfast too!

This dark chocolate homemade vegan peppermint bark is a healthy version of the holiday favorite! Made with coconut oil, dark cocoa powder, maple syrup, and peppermint extract. This delicious bark would also make great Christmas gifts!
This is for all the mint chocolate lovers out there! This decadent treat is nutty, chocolatey and has the perfect amount of peppermint flavour. These brownie peppermint cookies are rich and indulgent tasting, but much healthier than your traditional version! Win!
These vegan gingerbread cookies are filled with holiday spices in an easy to make, one bowl recipe! No chilling time or cookie cutters required for this one. Ready in 20 minutes! I do love a good gingerbread man cookie, but if you’re short on time, these perfect round cookies are a great go to.
With plump medjool dates, golden sultanas, dried cranberries and pears and a goodly swig of brandy, my favourite vegan Christmas pudding recipe makes creating a show-stopping Christmas dessert so easy. Easy and absolutely gorgeous, this Christmas dessert recipe has got it all.
