Thanksgiving is a super-nostalgic holiday that gives almost all of us the warm fuzzies, for sure — but for vegans, the day can be a little rough. Watching loved ones chow down on a huge bird is enough to make anyone who doesn’t eat animal products feel queasy; however, in a weird way, Thanksgiving also makes non-meat eaters strangely jealous too. We want to be guilt-free gluttonous one day a year just like everyone else!
It’s true there is no shortage of decadent options when it comes to vegan Thanksgiving alternatives; it’s just that sometimes they take a little more effort to whip up, especially when it comes to dessert.
But have no fear! These dessert recipes are totally vegan and don’t even require an oven to make. Fair warning, though: They’re so delicious everyone at the table is gonna want to steal some. No-bake vegan Thanksgiving desserts for the win.
