Looking to indulge your sweet tooth on healthy desserts that don’t skimp on the goodness? Try vegan. We found some scrumptious vegan desserts in Delhi for you that will surely satisfy your taste buds.

What is Vegan?

So what is a vegan you are wondering? Vegans are vegetarians who shun not only meat and eggs but even dairy products; and that includes butter, ghee, milk and yoghurt. A vegan diet is considered to be great for your health and for the environment too. Another very important reason for considering this diet is for the ethical treatment of animals. You don’t have to be a 24/7 vegan. Even a few days a month can make a difference.

Don’t confuse Vegan with Gluten free

A vegan diet is not the same as a gluten free one. Gluten is a mixture of proteins found in wheat grain (wheat, rye, barley) that may be hard to digest for some people. For them, a gluten free dough is made that is devoid of this protein. Luckily, there is no difference in taste and you won’t even know if you ate a gluten free product. This is beneficial mainly for those who have a gluten allergy.

Vegan Desserts that even Non-Vegans will Love

While there are countless options available for food, but when it comes specifically to desserts, you will have to search for quality places in Delhi that pass the test of taste. We tried the desserts at Bake Art, based in Vasant Kunj, and simply fell in love with their sweet course.

What’s more, they strictly avoid all kinds of transfats, refined sugar, aluminum filled baking powder. They even have oil free and sugar-free treats so you will have no reasons to feel guilty as you tuck into their delicious desserts.

Here’s what we recommend:

1. Coffee and Chocolate Cheesecake

A vegan rendition of the timeless cheesecake. The crust is made of date and almonds, the cheesecake with cashews, coconut, dates and coffee, all topped with a layer of Belgian chocolate.
