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!
Fishball noodles and pork porridge are comfort foods for many. For us, ice cream is a go-to and an essential, especially with such merciless weather all-year-round.
Some may say that what sets good ice cream apart from subpar ones is the use of quality milk and cream, but we beg to differ.
Kind Kones is a new ice cream parlour in Orchard that serves vegan ice cream—yes, that means that no milk nor cream is being incorporated in its making and less guilt while consuming your ice cream! The best part? It doesn’t compromise the taste nor the quality of their desserts.
Acai is one of those superfoods that, besides being delicious and “Instagrammable”, is widely lauded by for its multiple health benefits. Jam-packed with antioxidants, fibre, vitamins and minerals with supposedly anti-cancer and brain-boosting effects, acai bowls are hugely popular among both the hipster and fitness community.
Nestled amidst the lush greenery of Singapore Botanic Gardens, JUJU is a takeaway kiosk that serves a myriad of healthy, wholesome food on-the-go. Their acai bowls, in particular, stand out for being 100% plant-based without the use of any refined sugars and whatnot.
Whether you’re looking for a guilt-free dessert after sweating it out at Singapore Botanic Gardens the entire morning or just a rejuvenating, ice-cold dessert to enjoy as you explore the park, JUJU—located over at the Visitor Services Kiosk—will surely have you well sorted.
OUE Downtown Gallery is one of our favourite hangout spots in the heart of town—there are endless dining options—such as The Autobus, Lunar Coffee Brewers and Omotesando Koffee—that leaves us spoilt for choice when we are feeling peckish.
Adding onto the long list of dining options is a relatively new vegan dining concept that has popped up in the mall—HRVST. Pronounced as ‘harvest’, this is one stylish cafe that will catch the fancy of all health and gym junkies.
The kitchen is helmed by a pair of partner chefs, Addis Tan and Dylan who have 20 years of experience working for established F&B names such as Tippling Club, Esquina and Cheek by Jowl.
