When it comes to sweets, a lot of people tend to go for the chocolate desserts. Which is totally fine, we love chocolate over here! However, more often than not, vanilla treats often takes a backseat in the culinary world. Many people claim that it’s boring. Well, we went through the Food Monster App and found 15 Vanilla Recipes that are the opposite of boring. In fact, we do believe you will find them mouth-watering.

Maya Sozer‘s Caramel Vanilla Cake is a decadent as the title sounds. It is two creamy layers of caramel and vanilla laying atop a pecan crust and topped with chocolate. This is a cake to cook for guests you need to impress.

Emily von Euw‘s Vanilla Coffee Cream Tart is a creamy, sweet, surprisingly light, and unsurprisingly delicious recipe. A creamy vanilla filling sits on a sweet maple-coconut crust, topped with a rich coffee drizzle. Although there are a lot of flavors at work, they go together beautifully. This isn’t a dessert to be missed.

A rich and luxurious ice cream made from a base of cashews and avocado and swirled with sweet blueberry drizzle…how does that sound? Pretty delicious, right? Amanda Nicole Smith‘s Ice Cream has all the creaminess of traditional ice cream, no milk required! Top with extra berries, pecans, or crumbled cookies for a truly decadent treat!

The unexpected addition of fresh rosemary to Laura Ryan‘s Ice Cream will give you a whole new perspective on this frozen dessert. The rosemary combined with vanilla bean creates a distinct fragrance and wintry flavor. Prepare a batch of this ice cream the night before your next party.
Clémence Moulaert‘s Madeleines look sophisticated but the trickiest bit is just being patient enough to decorate them. The thing to remember with madeleines is that they dry out very quickly, so it’s best to eat them the same day, especially when they’re gluten-free.

Shannon Hickman‘s Vanilla Lucuma Shake is nut-free, gluten-free, soy-free and low in fat but still high in protein and fiber. The buckwheat in smoothies makes them so creamy and filling. The frozen pear, vanilla, and spices all compliment the Vanilla Lucuma protein quite nicely.

We know that the fried versions of doughnuts are not as healthy as the baked, but really, it’s like comparing fried potato chips to baked potato chips. You can’t beat the crunch of super sweet vanilla glaze over a warm fried doughnut, fresh from the frying oil. Abby Thompson‘s Vanilla Doughnuts do take a little time, between the two rise times and a bit of frying, but it is well worth the time commitment and fear of frying things in oil.

Hayley Canning‘s Vanilla Mug Cake tastes just like a fluffy, vanilla cupcake and you’ll probably have to stop yourself from making more than one mug! The ingredients are super nourishing and clean – buckwheat flour, baking powder, coconut sugar, vanilla extract, coconut oil, almond milk and an salt. This is perfect for when you want something sweet without the hassle of making a big batch of something! I actually used a small ramekin to make this, but any size mug will work.

This is a delicious, delicate and super easy French crepes recipe by Anna Miller that works every time! These crepes are great for breakfast, or a tasty dessert since they can be made sweet or savory!

Maya Sozer‘s rich and stunning Cheesecake is deceptively easy. No cooking involved, only mixing and pouring things, and that final satisfying step of swirling the caramel into a vanilla filling. With no refined sugars and a wholesome set of ingredients, you can feel good about serving this to loved ones. Oh yeah, and it only takes 30 minutes to make.

In Barbara Musick‘s Grilled Apple Pie With Vanilla Coconut Whipped Cream, traditional apple pie filling is wrapped in spring rolls, grilled, then brushed with melted vegan butter and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. The only thing that could possibly make it better is the vanilla-infused whipped coconut cream perfect for dipping.
