Guide to Vegan Desserts in Singapore – 22 Vegan-Friendly Places to Get Your Sweet Fix At

Vegan Desserts Banner

If you think going vegan means giving up all of your old favourite treats, think again. Gone are the days of needing to settle for a limited and uninspired palette of vegan items. With an increasing percentage of Singaporeans going vegan – be it by choice or due to health concerns – many F&B establishments have taken to including not just vegan mains, but adding vegan desserts into their menus as well.

With an abundance of vegan-friendly desserts currently available and many more being innovated by chefs islandwide, being vegan has never been this easy! Craving for a vegan cheesecake? Do you prefer to have it fluffy or dense? What about vegan ice cream and waffles? What flavour would you prefer to have it in?

Regardless of the specific dessert you are hankering after, there will likely be a vegan alternative already in existence. Otherwise, it is just a custom order away from one of the many talented vegan-friendly local chefs. To help all those with a sweet tooth out there, here is a guide to shops that sell vegan desserts to get your sweet fix at!

All The Batter Avocado Gula Melaka


ALL THE BATTER


With its thick and luscious consistency, avocadoes are great vegan substitutes for ingredients with a denser texture. While we see them often in savoury dishes, avocadoes rarely make an appearance in sweets. All The Batter is here to change that!

The owners of Singapore’s first and only avocado-themed café have found a delicious (and healthy) way to incorporate the fruit into their signature cakes. For vegans who are tired of cakes that are too airy to be reminiscent of their non-vegan counterparts, try the Avocado Gula Melaka and Chocolate Avocado, and your day will be All The Batter!

Beriwell, Acai Bowls copy


BERIWELL


Acai is great. So is soft serve. What if we told you that there is a place in Singapore that combines these two heavenly treats into a truly ambrosial dessert experience? That’s not all – what if said acai soft serves come in dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan options too?

If that sounds too good to be true, it’s time to head down to Berriwell to give their signature healthy acai soft serves, or Superswirls, a taste! Not only are their colourful creations utterly mesmerising with their myriad of toppings, the quality ingredients allow them to taste as good as they look too!

In alignment with their values, all cakes are vegan and halal-friendly, and made only using fair trade cocoa, coffee and sugar.
