It’s a birthday classic: a slice of cake and a scoop of ice cream! Eating vegan doesn’t mean you have to miss out on that, either. I’ve got a handful of vegan and refined sugar-free ice cream recipes that are easy to make (no churning!) and so tasty.

Birthday Cake Flavor
Birthday cake flavor is just so festive! It tastes like vanilla cake batter with plenty of colorful sprinkles, and it’s just the ticket when you’re hoping to delight someone on their special day. The birthday cake smoothie has become a tradition in our house, and we all look forward to it!

Chocolate Birthday Recipes
If the birthday person is a chocoholic (guilty!), then these are the recipes to make sure they have as much chocolate as they want on their special day. Brownies and truffles are also easy to transport, so they’re great for taking into the office if you have a vegan or gluten-free co-worker to spoil.
- Easy Vegan, Gluten-Free, Nut-Free Protein Brownies
- Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles
- Vegan & Gluten-Free Olive Oil Sweet Potato Brownies with Almond Butter Swirl
- Homemade Vegan Dark Chocolate
- Vegan Dessert Shooters
I love having an easy treat at lunchtime! These are also perfect for packing in a lunch box so that the birthday person feels celebrated and special when they dig into their meal.
- Sugar Cut-Out Cookies – select a cookie cutter in their favorite shape. I got cute ballerina ones for the girls recently. Star cookie cutters are also fun for the birthday star!
- Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies – serve them as a special treat in champagne flutes with chilled almond milk!
- No-Bake Frosted Vegan Rice Crispy Treats – healthy enough for a snack but tastes (and looks) like dessert!
Start the day with a smile! Making someone you love feel special on their birthday starts first thing in the morning with a breakfast they’ll remember. Even oatmeal can feel special with the right touch!
- Vegan Blueberry Pancakes
- Easy Vegan Creamy Chocolate Oatmeal (add my coconut whipped cream and some sprinkles!)
- Baked Chocolate Donuts with Chocolate Ganache Glaze – Vegan & Gluten-Free
- Quick & Easy Mini Pancakes Cereal (make them with sprinkles instead of blueberries and top with coconut whipped cream!)
- Vegan Toaster Pastries (Homemade Pop-Tarts with vegan Nutella!)
I hope you found something sweet and delicious to make for the birthday person! All of these recipes are gluten-free, vegan (no eggs or dairy!), and made without refined sugar or soy. You can even use my Easy Homemade Sugar Scrub for a homemade birthday gift! I hope you’ll post and tag me on Instagram if you use any of these recipes on a special day, and please leave a review on the recipe post to help other readers.
