A hot summer’s day just isn't quite the same without a frozen sweet treat to cool you down. We’re all for indulging every now and again, especially when gelato is involved, but if you’re dairy-free or are just looking for something slightly more nutritious during this never-ending heatwave, here are our favourite frozen treats to enjoy in London this Summer:
Whether you choose their original, cacao or super green option, there’s no knocking the super thick texture of this acai bowl! At £8.50 for an original bowl, it’s not the cheapest option, but the portion size is generous, and the sweet buckwheat granola ticks all our boxes. Our top tip? Order half chocolate, half vanilla granola – because why would you choose when you could just have both?
Low calorie, fat-free yogurt, sweetened with agave nectar. We’re big fans of customisability and place that suits everyone’s tastes – which is exactly what we love about Snog. Mix and match your favourite yogurt base – whether that’s original, dairy free coconut, pistachio or chocolate and hazelnut – and add whatever toppings take your fancy. Pick mango, strawberries and granola for a fruity breakfast bowl, or treat yourself to a chocolate-y dessert with fudgy brownie, peanut butter and oreos.
It may not be the healthiest of options, but we’ll always have a place in our hearts (and stomachs) for a little gelato! This Covent Garden spot focuses on seasonal ingredients, organic dairy and a good provenance chain, which gets a big tick from us! Vegans? Try their award-winning (London’s best) Vegan Sicilian Pistachio sorbet, made famous for its creamy and nutty flavour or their marzipan tasting almond flavour.
The spot making plant-based eating exciting and fun, Yorica is the place to go for a completely vegan menu ice cream and fro-yo. All ingredients are gluten, dairy, egg, nut and peanut free and without an animal product in sight.
As soon as the sun comes out, we crave smoothies all day long. Stop by The Neat Café on Regent St. for a sweet like chocolate shake to satisfy your sweet tooth and cool you down this summer. Ask for a shot of coffee for an extra caffeine kick, and extra ice for a cooling thick-shake.
Want to enjoy your treat at the comfort of your own home? Grab yourself a pint of salted caramel Oppo, sweetened with stevia and made with organic dairy, or a dairy-free Miro magnum, made with frozen coconut milk and sweetened with coconut sugar - both available on Ocado.
