No-Bake Vegan Desserts are some of the easiest desserts to make out there. Whether you’re a novice in the kitchen, want a project your kids can help with, or just want some fun desserts, this list is for you.
Hey Internet, I’ve loved no-bake desserts for a long time. Even before I started getting more interested in baking, I enjoyed being able to make a low-stress easy dessert without ever turning on the oven.
Baking can be intimidating, especially as a vegan. You have to find the right binder, measure correctly, and things still might not turn out the way you hope. I speak from experience here.
No bake vegan desserts are great especially in the summer. While I love a dessert fresh from the oven as much as anyone else, I certainly do not want to heat up my whole house.
I might even want a cold dessert, like vegan ice cream cake (internal link).
Or maybe I want a warm dessert that is made without the microwave, such as this vegan mug brownie. This is kind of actually baking so it doesn’t really count on this list.
However, if you are scared to bake or are brand new to baking, vegan mug desserts are a great idea. I also have a vegan vanilla mug cake, vegan matcha mug cake, vegan mug cookie, and vegan protein mug cake if any of those seems like something you might be interested in.
No-bake desserts are also fun to make with your kids, your friends, or even your spouse. My husband and I had a blast making our vegan chocolate covered pretzels, and an equally fun time eating them!
I think you'll find tons of great recipes in the list below.

Ice Cream, Nice Cream, and Popsicles
I'm putting vegan ice cream, "nice" cream (banana-based ice cream), and popsicles all in one category, and that's going to be the first category. I'm assuming that most people who are searching for no-bake vegan desserts are not wanting to heat up their kitchen with an oven, so maybe it's hot outside and they want a frozen treat? Maybe I'm projecting. Regardless, here are some frozen treats first, then we'll move onto other vegan no-bake desserts later.
Pudding, Mousse, and Custard
These delicious vegan no-bake desserts are all served in small jars or pots and served with a spoon. Top with vegan whipped cream or any other toppings you'd like.
Dessert Balls and Bites
Whether you call them bliss balls, energy bites, or something else entirely, these little bite-sized treats are the perfect snack that's worthy of being called dessert. Enjoy one or two straight from the fridge or freezer any time you need quick pick-me-up.
Larger Hand Held Treats
I'm always game for a handheld dessert, especially when it's a no-bake vegan dessert.
Vegan Mug Desserts
So technically these are baking... but in a mug! And since they require a microwave, not an oven that heats up your house, and they're super easy to make, I thought I'd include them here just in case you're looking for a warm dessert that's still perfect for beginner bakers.
Miscellaneous No Bake Vegan Desserts
These may not fit in any other category, but make no mistake: They are all delicious and gorgeous vegan no-bake desserts.
