40 BEST Fruit-Forward, Plant-Based Dessert Recipes

Get inspired to create a healthy, plant-based (vegan) dessert packed with a rainbow of fruits, thanks to this collection of 40 BEST Fruit-Forward Dessert Recipes, which includes recipes in every category, including puddings, cheesecakes, frozen desserts, cakes, muffins, bars, pies, and cobblers.

Life’s best desserts are those that are naturally sweetened with plenty of real, whole, seasonal fruits. I mean just filled to the brim with colorful, aromatic, crunchy, sweet fruit. After all, these naturally sweet plant foods were human’s original desserts, before the advent of refined sugars. Our ancient ancestors never knew anything sweeter than ripe berries and stone fruit, unless they fought the bees for honey now and again. Now we know that a high added sugar diet is linked with health risks, but a diet filled with fruits has the opposite effect; it can help reduce your risks of chronic diseases. Fruits go beyond health to offer so much vibrant life to a dessert recipe. Whether it’s a creamy sorbet made with mango, a rustic peach cobbler, or a raspberry-filled bar, a rainbow of fruits is the true life of the party in the finest desserts! That’s why I asked some of my favorite bloggers to share their best plant-based, vegan fruit-forward dessert recipes for fruit-forward desserts in this fabulous collection of recipes. Bring on the fruit, thanks to these fruit-forward dessert recipes in a variety of categories, including puddings, cheesecakes, frozen desserts, cakes, muffins, bars, pies, and cobblers.
