Our Favourite Vegan Ice Lollies To Enjoy All Summer
by Laura Barns
Is there anything better than tucking into an ice lolly on a hot summer's day? Thought not! Here are my favourite vegan ice lollies to enjoy this summer and beyond. Because I scream, you scream, we're basically all going to be screaming for these bad boys.
Magnum Vegan Sea Salt Caramel – Ocado, £3.69
I legally had to start with this option because, well, just try it and then come back to me. You'll get it. I love supporting small vegan brands, but sometimes it's equally satisfying to see big known brands I've grown up with bring out plant-based options. And especially when they do it really, really well. Like these vegan Magnums – there are now three vegan ice lollies in their range, and this has to be my favourite because, erm, hello, salted caramel...
Rowntree's Watermelon Lollies – Ocado £1.90
Ok so if you come round to my house from May-September, you'll always find at least one box of these in my freezer. I love anything watermelon flavoured as for me, it's the most refreshing flavour ou there, so in vegan ice lolly form, it's basically heaven on a stick. Have I ever let one melt and used it to make a watermelon daiquiri before? Maybe.
R White Lemonade Ice Lollies – Sainsbury's £2
If these don't immediately transport you to an old school English sweet shop after school, or waiting (not so) patiently in the queue at an ice cream van, I don't know what will. They're really refreshing, and are surprisingly low in calories, if you're looking for something on the slightly lighter side on the list, too.
Del Monte 100% Juice Ice Lollies – Ocado £1.90
Speaking of low calorie, these guys come in at just 69 each, and are made with 100% real fruit juices. In fact, all you'll find on the ingredients list is; Concentrated Orange Juice (82.5%), Concentrated Grape Juice (9.5%), Concentrated Apple Juice (8%). Oh and they taste AMAZING. They're a great option when you want something a little more grown-up from your vegan ice lollies, without compromising on flavour.
Little Jude's Fruit & Veg Rockets – £3.75
It wouldn't be a complete list of vegan ice lollies without the inclusion of a rocket lolly, and these ones are great for little lolly lovers. They're refined sugar-free and come in three delicious flavours which are a great way of sneaking some fruit and veg into fussy eaters; Raspberry & Beetroot, Orange & Carrot, Apple & Spinach.
Fancy making your own blueberry ice lollies?
You're in the right place. Val's berry ice lollies are delicious, require four ingredients and are all the rage. Did I mention they're tie-dye? Get the recipe here.
