The struggle of being vegan during the holidays is real — especially if you haven’t said no to all animal products your entire life and some of your family still eats meat, dairy and eggs. The smells of Thanksgiving wafting down the halls are super-nostalgic and conjure up memories of eating (and laughing) ’til it hurt as a child, making you miss those good ol’-fashioned foods — if even just a little bit.
But luckily, it’s 2017, and the internet has brought the vegan community together in a very real way to swap recipes that are so delicious, even non-vegan family members will want some. After you eat your holiday breakfast, move on to your turkey-alternative main course and gobble down some cruelty-free sides, you’re gonna be more than ready for some vegan desserts that are so good, you won’t want to share.
From pumpkin chocolate mousse pie to sweet potato-pecan pie doughnuts we’ve got a dessert for every kind of sweet tooth on this list.
