With Mother’s Day a few weeks away, I figured it was time to round up some of the most decadent springtime recipes on this website to help us celebrate the wonderful women in our lives.
Whether you want to celebrate your best friend, mother, grandmother, or sister, Mother’s Day should be a celebration of women everywhere who inherently show strength, grace, and resilience in a world that is not always kind to them.
And specifically to moms, a job that requires so much sacrifice and love, let you be celebrated these coming days!

In this roundup, you’ll find classic recipes with a healthy vegan spin that your mother will absolutely love.
How do I know that? I’m a mother and I approve them all.
Let’s take a closer look.

There are so many options for Mother’s Day dinner.
I love recipes that celebrate the freshness of spring and vegetables such as cauliflower steaks, lemony pasta, and asparagus cream tarts. Think of filling your table with all the springtime vegetables through small plate items.

No Mother’s Day meal is complete without a delicious vegan dessert.
My favorite desserts for springtime are ones that are light and filled with fresh fruits and berries. Lemon cakes, berry cobblers, and shortcakes are always a hit this time of year. And I highly recommend my 5-ingredient coconut ice cream to accompany any vegan dessert. It’s a fan favorite!
