Have yourself a merry vegan Christmas with a vegan take on the traditional Christmas desserts and sweets.
Being vegan during holidays and celebrations may seem daunting at times. And ditching the lifestyle for a few days, or at least during the desserts might be tempting. The struggle is real even for the most dedicated vegans. But with a few substitutions and a little bit of love and Christmas magic, vegan desserts can be equally delicious all the while being cruelty-free.
