Vegan and Raw Blueberry Cheesecake

This might just be the best cheesecake you’ve ever tasted. Rich with nuts and flavored with summer blueberries, you won’t believe that this is a raw, vegan dessert. Other than the 20 minutes of prep time, there are about 4 hours of freezing time.

Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut Bites

Coconut bites from the Minimalist Baker

These bites are one of my favorite desserts yet! Consider these my lazy-girl’s take on classic Almond Joys. The base is a naturally-sweetened, no-bake coconut cookie dunked in dark chocolate and topped with a roasted almond and more chocolate. Serve these delectable bites as a simple dessert, or enjoy throughout the week as a relatively guilt-free snack!

But if you really must, they pair beautifully with savory dishes homemade or store-bought vegan cheeses. Recipe and photo from Vegan Finger Foods: More Than 100 Crowd-Pleasing Recipes for Bite-Size Eats Everyone Will Love by Celine Steen and Tamasin Noyes.
