From an influx of vegan-friendly foods and an increased variety of meat alternatives, 2019 was the year veganism went mainstream — and for good reason. According to the report “Top Trends in Prepared Foods 2017” published in June 2017, the number of vegans in America grew by 600 percent from nearly 4 million in 2014 to 19.6 million in 2017. And that number includes kids, too. A UK-based report in 2018 found that one in 12 parents were raising their children as vegan, while an additional 13 percent of families were feeding their children vegetarian diets. All this to say, veganism knows no age — and no meal is off-limits, even dessert. But don’t worry because we’ve found 15 vegan desserts kids will actually love.
Vegan desserts may seem tricky — they can’t include dairy and eggs, after all — but an increasing number of vegan-friendly baking products have been hitting shelves in recent years, making it easier than ever to bake healthy, yet delicious vegan desserts.
From homemade Twix bars and oatmeal cream pies to no-bake peanut butter bars and cheesecake, here are the kid-friendly vegan desserts we can’t wait to make.
