There are remarkably good versions of all of these foods that contain not a single speck of animal products. You can find fantastic vegan desserts locally at natural food stores, coffee houses, and restaurants.

On top of your commercially-made options, there are many phenomenal vegan dessert cookbooks. You can also veganize most existing dessert recipes by making a few simple substitutions. In particular, check out my guide to Egg Replacer and my list of vegan cooking alternatives, which includes vegan milk, butter, and whipped cream products.

Vegan Dessert Cookbooks

Most vegan cookbooks contain a dessert section. But if you want to get serious, all of these cookbooks are entirely devoted to vegan desserts:

Vegan Baking

Your vegan dessert possibilities also include oven-baked muffins, cakes, pies, and sweetbreads. To try your hand at making these foods yourself, please see my guide to vegan baking.

Whipped cream is the perfect topping for just about any baked dessert, and it’s also fantastic on ice cream. Several companies make excellent vegan whipped cream. You can also make vegan whipped cream from scratch in minutes using canned coconut cream.
