Having dessert in Singapore doesn't have to be sinful when you’ve guilt-free vegan and sugar-free alternatives waiting for you…
We take the saying ‘there’s always room for dessert’ seriously here. Our chocolate cake, candy shop, tart and donut guides can vouch for it. But on days when we’re watching what we eat, vegan desserts come to the rescue. From refined sugar and preservative-free delights to vegan and keto-friendly options, we present our list of guilt-free desserts in Singapore.
Guilt-free desserts in Singapore: From vegan to keto-friendly picks
1. Kind Kones
Plant-based ice cream never tasted so good until we tried Kind Kones. Free of dairy, egg, and artificial additives, and made in small batches, this is a great alternative if you’re staying away from sugar and unhealthy fats. Go classic with Madagascan vanilla bean, chocolate sorbet, strawberry and mint chocolate chip flavours. Or for something different, there’s keto avocado coconut, charcoal vanilla, banana, coconut and fig swirl, pandan gula melaka and pistachio oat. Craving something else? The menu also has cakes, cookies and superfood bliss balls.
Kind Kones, multiple locations including Forum Shopping Mall, The Paragon and II2 Katong; or order online
The entire range of this artisanal patisserie is made without the use of animal products (eggs and dairy), soy, nuts and gluten. And boy is it delicious. We keep going back for the best-selling Midnight Grand dark chocolate cake – it’s so decadent and full of cocoa flavour, you’d almost think it’s sinful. Lucky for us, Roa cakes and cupcakes are made using avocados, brown rice milk and psyllium husk.
Roa, multiple locations including East Coast Commune, Wild Honey (Mandarin Galley & Scotts Square); or order online
3. Oh My Goodness!
Oh My Goodness! offers cakes and bread that are free of gluten, dairy, yeast and refined sugar. From whole cakes like walnut carrot and lemon-raspberry to bite-sized canapes and bread boxes with walnut bread rolls and buckwheat bread fingers, it’s got every celebration covered. More than offering vegan desserts in Singapore, it’s also a social enterprise that employs people from disadvantaged communities through partnerships with Daughters Of Tomorrow, Minds and more. Oh, and to prevent waste, all unused ingredients are repurposed in new products or distributed to the staff.

4. The Clean Addicts
Witnessing her mother’s health struggles was a wake-up call for founder Andrea Lee to embrace a healthier lifestyle. As a sweet tooth, she couldn’t give up dessert altogether so she launched her online vegan bakery in 2017. The certified nutrition coach and raw food chef uses real whole foods like nuts, beans and oats to create tasty alternatives. Sink your teeth into cocoa whole foods fudge cake, double matcha flourless fudge cake, assorted mochi muffins and protein balls.
