10 vegan recipes to keep you cool this summer

Summer has finally arrived! We’ve picked out 10 vegan recipes to see you through the heatwave.

A long overdue heatwave has seen temperatures reach upwards of 30°C this week, with more hot and sunny weather forecasted for this weekend. So what better way to celebrate (and navigate your way through the inevitable surge in ice cream vans and barbecues) than with some delicious, refreshing vegan recipes?


  1. Golden Milk Ice Cream by Minimalist Baker 

Minimalist Baker

Minimalist Baker’s no-churn ice cream is the colour of sunshine and flavoured with anti-inflammatory spices. Recipe for no-churn ice cream here.

2. Lavender Coconut Ice Cream by In Sonnet’s Kitchen

3. Tomato and Watermelon Gazpacho with Pistachios and Basil Oil by Love and Olive Oil

The perfect dish for a light lunch al fresco. Recipe for Tomato and Watermelon Gazpacho here.

4. Chilled Avocado Gazpacho with Savoury Granola by Clean Food Dirty City

5. Lemony Summer Harvest Falafel by Well and Full

Who needs burgers when you’ve got falafel? Just the thing for barbecues and picnics. Falafel recipe here.

6. Lemon and Rosemary Ice Lollies by Miller Green

Vegan ice lollies

Speaking of fragrant herbs and zesty citrus, have you tried our 4-ingredient lemon and rosemary ice lollies yet? Ice Lollies recipe here.

7. Avocado Dill Potato Salad by Edible Perspective

Edible Perspective

Make the most of potato season with this veganised (and in our opinion, much more sophisticated) version of a British summer staple. Potato Salad recipe here.

8. Sweetheart Cabbage Slaw by Jamie Oliver

Jamie Oliver

A zingy passion fruit dressing upgrades the humble slaw. This one improves after a couple of days in the fridge, so it’s an ideal lunchbox option to make ahead and see you through the working week. Cabbage Slaw recipe here.

9. Rhubarb and Strawberry Lemonade by Green Kitchen Stories

Green Kitchen Stories

Flavoured with lime and mint, a tall glass of this on a hot day is just what the doctor ordered. Rhubarb and Strawberry Lemonade recipe here.

10. Aperol Spritz

Aperol spritz

And speaking of lifesaving drinks…this refreshing Italian aperitivo might very well have replaced Pimm’s as the nation’s favourite summer drink. And it’s vegan. Aperol Spritz recipe here.
