Indulgence does not need to mean unhealthy. This list of vegan plant-based treats gives you some healthier desserts to indulge in this holiday season!
It's holiday season. Are we freaking out yet? Presents to buy and wrap, holiday cards to send, and then we have Peety our elf on the shelf. I won't even get started on him (read love/hate relationship).
But most of all, parties. SO MANY PARTIES. Don't get me wrong, I am a party kinda gal, but staying healthy and somewhat fit during this time is so hard! The desserts seem to beckon with their siren call. Eat me. Just one won't hurt. Yeah, don't ever believe them.
Even one seems to be a slippery slope to cookies for dinner...which is why I have compiled a list for you all! I'm here to keep you in check, but keep your tastebuds and indulgent urges happy. Meet my top 10 healthier vegan desserts for helping you indulge the plant-based way this season!
I Said Healthier.....
I wouldn't say desserts are exactly healthy, but these little numbers can definitely be called healthy vegan desserts in comparison to their very unhealthy counterparts.
Wash them down with a nice tall glass of Silk plant milk, and you will feel satisfied to the core. What you won't feel is the heavy bloated gross feeling that seems to come hand in hand with the holidays! Drumroll please...
