LIKE OGP ON FACEBOOK :

Spring is arriving and soon, all things colorful will start to bloom again. The leaves fill in the trees with vibrant greens and flowers start to pop up and transform the world into a beautiful pallet of color. Our food becomes more colorful, as well. Besides the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies, it’s time for decorating Easter eggs and making delicious, sweet desserts in pretty pastel colors.

Instead of reaching for chemical food colorings, we can use plant-based foods for natural food coloring that is healthy and delicious. With beautiful foods like lemons, raspberries, blueberries, mint, watermelon, and cherries, it’s easy to make colorful desserts that are perfect for spring. Here are 20 vegan desserts that are pretty in pink and other pastel colors for spring.
