Since the weather is absolutely scorchio, and it looks set to stick around for a while, I thought it was worth rounding up the best vegan ice creams! I’ve got to make sure my fellow dairy-free and vegan gods and goddesses can keep their cool in this balmy weather! Whilst I’ll admit you won’t often find me eating anything sugary, in this heat I will make an exception!
Iced Luxury: Booja Booja
Booja Booja products are seriously rich and tasty. Their products are cashew-based, raw and organic. Really beautifully produced, and pretty packaging too. Branding is on point!
Delicious flavours – Hazelnut Chocolate Truffle, Raspberry Ripple, Caramel Pecan Praline and Chocolate Salted Caramel. Vegan Ice-cream decadence at it’s best! No need to buy a dessert for these to go with, they are perfect all by themselves. Great for a dinner party, or just a Friday night catching up with
your friends Netflix!
Supermarket Special: Swedish Glace by Wall’s
This is your classic vanilla ice cream, it’s soy-based and you’d never know it was dairy free. You can also get it in raspberry and chocolate. The best thing is that it’s really easy to find as it’s in all the big supermarkets. I’ve even found it in deepest Devon much to my delight!
Swedish Glace is a soya-based, Italian-style ice cream that’s deliciously creamy and comes in vanilla, raspberry, and chocolate flavours. The brand also offers a box of mini ice creams covered with chocolate, which you can find in most major supermarkets.
On-The-Go Hero: Miiro Ice-Cream
These are seriously ah-mazing – totally moreish and delicious. They are coated with raw chocolate, so even contain the amazing benefits of cacao. They’re gluten-free and refined sugar free and come in three mouth-watering flavours… Peanut Butter, Chocolate Hazelnut and Salted Caramel. No wonder these guys win awards! Out of all the best vegan ice creams… this one comes out top for me every time. Super tasty, lovely treat size and a great young company to support too!
These beauties are available from Whole Foods, Planet Organic and As Nature Intended.
Tropical Vibes: Coconut Collab
For those who love the bounty bar vibes, these beauties are spot on! Cute little packs of coconut ice-cream pops, what more could you want during a heat wave? If you’re a fan of ice-cream tubs, have no fear, you can also get chocolate snowconut tubs! Available in Sainsbury’s, and other supermarkets too.
nIce N Nutty: Almond Dream
Delicious flavours of mint chocolate chip, vanilla, and salted caramel – vegan friendly goodness fresh from our yank neighbours over the pond!

Plant Power: Alpro
Alpro is a really well known brand when it comes to dairy-free milks and yoghurts, so I was delighted when they announced their new ice-cream flavours; vanilla, coconut, and hazelnut chocolate! The hazelnut chocolate is one of my all time favourite flavour combinations, great with a vegan pear crumble, or just straight out of the tub…

I hope you’re enjoying this weather and keeping cool!
Happy ice-cream coma’s y’all 🙂
