These heavenly Vegan Sweet Potato Dessert Recipes will quickly become some of your favorite vegan treats to make all year round.
Sweet potatoes lend themselves beautifully in desserts and can also be successfully substituted in many pumpkin dessert recipes. Most recipes call for a sweet potato puree but in baked cakes, you can also use raw grated sweet potatoes, the same way you would use carrots in a carrot cake.
Sweet potatoes team well with warming spices like cinnamon, ginger, cloves and nutmeg. They pair well with vanilla and chocolate creating delicious mousses and fillings. Sweet potato chocolate brownies are one of the most popular vegan treats that I’m sure you have tried.
In this Vegan Sweet Potato Dessert Recipes round-up you’ll find many creative ways to use this incredibly versatile and popular ingredient in sweet dishes. Plus I have a separate round-up for Vegan Sweet Potato Pie Recipes so remember to check that one out too.
