The holidays are upon us! Holiday baking is all about indulgence, but nobody wants to spend all their time in the kitchen. Between holiday parties, and family dinners, it can be hard to keep up with the Christmas baking. And just because you’re vegan, doesn’t mean you can’t indulge. Check out these no-bake recipes to help you embrace the spirit of the holidays, without slaving away in the kitchen!
