The holiday weekend is officially upon us, so I wanted to put together a post with some of my favorite vegan Fourth of July desserts! Anyone will enjoy these desserts whether they’re vegan or not – I’ve tried making these recipes personally and I can vouch for the fact that they’re all delicious. If you bring any of these to your 4th party, they’ll be gone pretty quickly.
If you have a lot of space and you want to serve a light and healthy frozen dessert, try making some strawberry or blueberry nice cream using my banana ice cream and decorating with red, white and blue toppings!
Here are my five favorite vegan fourth of July desserts:
1) Patriotic Fruit Parfait
Starting off the list is something quick and easy that I created myself. This is a snack size patriotic fruit parfait with a dairy free vanilla yogurt, and all you need to make this is four things:
- Your favorite plant based yogurt (Silk and So Delicious make really yummy ones)
- Strawberries or raspberries
For mine, I like to place cut up strawberries in the very bottom of a glass, then scoop yogurt on top until the glass is half full. Then I layer a bunch of granola on top of the yogurt, and scoop more yogurt on top of that until the glass is basically full. Then you just add more strawberries and some blueberries on top and you have a refreshing and super healthy treat that’s perfect for the 4th! They’re really fast to make so you can make them all in advance and keep them in the fridge until you’re ready to serve them.
2) 4th of July Brownies by B. Britnell
These brownies are so cute and small, you could eat all of them in one sitting.
3) Paleo + Vegan Flag Fruit Tart by 40 Aprons
This flag tart is so creative and a perfect vegan fourth of July recipe! Just make sure to read the vegan notes in the post.
4) Vegan Red Velvet Cake by Loving It Vegan
How decadent does this red velvet cake look?! Just goes to show that there is really to need to use eggs or dairy in your baking at all. The best desserts I’ve ever had have all been vegan versions of everything I used to eat! Throw some blue sprinkles on top of this and you’re good!
5) Oat Flour Chocolate Chip Cookies by Beaming Baker
So this recipe isn’t really fourth of July related, but what kind of party would it be without chocolate chip cookies? I had to include these ones from Beaming Baker because they are seriously the BEST chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever tried! They’re basically guaranteed to be a big hit 🙂
Thanks for reading my favorite vegan fourth of July dessert recipes! What do you have planned for the holiday weekend?
