But first, dessert…

Hold the Dairy! Mini Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Cones

Note: these bars are not gluten free.

NEW! Vanilla Bean Oat Milk Ice Cream

This new non-dairy oat frozen dessert flavor is an excellent vegan vanilla ice cream option. Rich and creamy with vanilla bean specs, it will make the perfect topping to any pie or cake, or sandwich a scoop in between two of those vegan chocolate chip cookies below!

Instant Boba Kit

Boba tea lovers, this kit is a must-try! The boba mix comes frozen with a paper boba straw (of course!). Simply warm the mix and then combine with your favorite plant milk for a tasty treat! This is my kids’ current favorite dessert!

Cinnamon Bun Inspired Joe-Joe’s (seasonal item)

Trader Joe's Cinnnamon Bun Inspired Joe-Joe's.

Clearly this one makes the overall Best Trader Joe’s Vegan Food list as well!

Peanut Butter Caramel Coated Popcorn

Guys, this one is dangerous. Perfectly balanced, not too sweet, it appears that adults actually have a harder time only taking one handful;). Whatever you do, DO NOT open alone.

Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Wegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, one of the top Trader Joe's vegan desserts.

These vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with coconut are the only store bought cookies we buy regularly as they are consistently soft, slightly chewy, and not crumbly. And those little coconut flakes make them just so delicious. They are our go-to road trip dessert as they travel well too.

These cookies are so top notch that they are also included in the Best Trader Joe’s Vegan Food!

Oat Milk Ice Cream Sandwiches

Vegan ice cream sandwiches.

If these aren’t nostalgic, I don’t know what is. This Trader Joe’s dairy free ice cream sandwich tastes like childhood. I dare you to trick someone with one!

Oat Chocolate Bars

Oat chocolate bars.

These new “milk chocolate bars” are a win! Finally, a vegan option for milk chocolate that is accessible and easy to find. And the mini size is a perfect portion. And don’t miss the newer crispy rice version.

Cold Crew Coffee/Tea and Boba Frozen Dessert

Attention coffee ice cream lovers!!! This one’s for you!

First, the coffee flavor of this coconut milk ice cream is DELICIOUS- strong coffee flavor, perfect sweetness, not an obvious coconut flavor. Second, the boba (tapioca pearls) are a delightful mild & chewy surprise in every bite.

And sweet tea lovers…this is surprisingly delightful too.

Vegan Bon Bons: Trader Joe’s Vegan Desserts that are worth it!

Vegan bon bons!

Trader Joe’s bon bons are all the rage these days! At nearly every backyard gathering, someone brings a few boxes of these delicious bites to share. Adored by herbivores and omnivores alike, vegan bon bons are always a crowd-pleaser.

Trader Joe’s sometimes carries mint flavor too, be on the lookout!

These striped bars have been a summer favorite for years! The perfect balance of sweet and tart, they made kids and adults smile.

Vegan Banana Bread with Walnuts

Walnut banana bread.

Call it dessert for breakfast, a sweet snack, or dessert. Whatever you call it, this banana bread is worth the calories – try it with a schmear of vegan cream cheese on top for the ultimate bite!

Dark Chocolate, Nuts, and Sea Salt Bars

Chocolate and nut bar, on of the best Trader Joe's vegan desserts.

These tasty bars are a better version of Kind Bars IMO…chewier and gooier! We love them as a snack or dessert – try cutting into chunks and serving over the vanilla nice cream below!

These bars often come in a box of 5, and are usually available as single bars too. TJ’s offer three nut combo versions- our fav is the the peanut, almond, and walnut.

Fruity Chews

Fruit chews, one of the Trader Joe's vegan desserts that are worth it!

Vegan Starburst?! That’s right, this chewy treat tastes very similar to the popular nostalgic candy, but with natural ingredients and flavors…and without the red dye and gelatin! ENJOY!
