Vegan Lamington Bliss Balls

Are you a vegan? If you are, you should rejoice as our dessert recipe for today is vegan-friendly. It is something that vegans and non-vegans would absolutely love.

Presenting…Vegan Lamington Bliss Balls! 🙂

These beauties are an authentic Australian dessert. While the name sounds complicated, they are actually very easy to make. If you go for the no-bake route, you can have a delicious vegan dessert in just 20 minutes. That’s for real!

So what are Lamington Bliss Balls exactly? In Australia, Lamingtons are quite popular. You can find them in almost all Aussie bakeries. They are cakes made with a vanilla sponge that is covered in chocolate and dipped in desiccated coconut. They may also come with jam or cream filling, which we are going to feature today. 🙂

For this recipe, we are going to alter the traditional lamington a little bit. It’s going to be “raw”. But don’t worry, the result would be very satisfying, a perfect treat for vegans like you. In fact, even non-vegans do love these Lamington Bliss Balls. You will never regret making it, I swear!

What to expect? We are going to turn the classic vanilla sponge into a fluffy cashew coconut mixture. We are also going to substitute the chocolate frosting with a chocolate ganache. And lastly, we are utilizing whole raspberries instead of a raspberry jam.
