15+ Delicious Holiday and Christmas Desserts | Vegan and Gluten Free

Shortly after my travel to Cambodia, I discovered that there is a whole side of the pastry world, all Dairy free! At that time, the pastry shops that got my attention were the ones that served Vegan desserts. My first sweet was a Vegan chocolate one that it was sooo delicious that I could not believe it was dairy free.

On my way back to my country, even though I had no ideas how to create a Vegan sweet, I start my studies and really loved it!!

Opening this beautiful list of Christmas Desserts is like opening the door of Santa Claus house! You can get great ideas, all Vegan but you also get to wander the world’s most delicious Christmas Gluten Free desserts.

I teamed up with other Vegan bloggers to provide you with 25 Delicious Holiday and Christmas Desserts | Vegan and Gluten Free.
