Vegan brownies are quite similar to regular brownies except that vegan recipes tend to sneak all kinds of vegetables and other healthy superfoods into theirs. Nuts, berries… like the above recipe for Carrot Zucchini Chocolately Brownies: healthy AND delicious.

If you’ve ever stepped inside of a Whole Foods you already know that you can buy dairy free ice cream in nearly every flavor imaginable. I’m partial to making my own ice cream at home, and this recipe for Fairy Dust Cake Batter Ice Cream is both tasty and easy to make.

21. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
Why go for a store-bought brand when you could be eating the raw version?
This recipe for a chocolate vegan custard by Veggieful takes only ten minutes to prepare!
One of my favorite things about a raw diet is the seemingly endless array of dessert options! Sorbets are super easy to make, requiring only a handful of ingredients (sometimes only one!) and some ice. The recipe above by Rawified, for example, consists of only mangoes and lemons and limes.
25. Peanut Butter Balls

When you grab a box of popsicles out of your grocery store freezer it’s a race against the clock to get them home before they melt. Skip the hassle — and opt for some all-natural ingredients — by making your own at home. Because yes, even your favorite classic Popsicle brand has high fructose corn syrup in them. What’s healthier than fruit and ice?

Gimme a break …with the store-bought kind. I’ll take my Kit Kats all natural with this recipe.

This recipe over at The Copycat Cook calls for only two ingredients AND can be made in either a dehydrator or an oven.
Grab some raw hazelnuts and cocoa powder on your next trip to the grocery store and you’ll never go back to the store-bought brand. Try out the recipe for yourself here.
