If you're anything like us, the sun does nothing to curb your sweet tooth (even during a heatwave), but it does make you less likely to crave a warm chocolate cake or hot apple crumble. So, we've put together a list of our favourite summery vegan dessert recipes, so you can still eat sweet despite the heat.

1. Chocolate Honeycomb Tarts

All the sweetness of honey, minus the bees. This no-bake tart recipe is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. Sprinkle some H!P Honeycomb pieces on top and you’ve made your very own showstopper.

2. Vibrant Vegan Cheesecake Slices

With a walnut crust, a creamy ‘cheesecake’ middle and a tart raspberry topping, these slices look as incredible as they taste. The raspberry topping adds a little tang to stop it being overwhelmingly sweet, and the middle is as smooth and rich as any dairy cheesecake. For a cheeky crunch on top, try our White Berry Crunch Bar.

3. Ice Cream Sandwiches

If you love ice cream and you love cookies (and we don’t know why you wouldn’t love both those things), this vegan ice cream cookie sandwich will be a dream come true. We recommend adding our Original H!P Bar to your cookies for some gooey chocolate chips.

4. Flapjacks

You can’t go wrong with a good old-fashioned flapjack; it’s a staple summer picnic item and easy to make dairy-free. Add what you like (including plenty of H!P chocolate chunks), pack them as full as you need to, and enjoy cold as a summer treat.

5. Eton Mess

An iconic summer dessert that vegans and non-vegans alike should be free to enjoy. This recipe uses aquafaba (chickpea liquid - which we know sounds gross but is actually a miraculous alternative to egg whites) combined with coconut yoghurt and a heap of berries to create an impressive dessert that’s perfect for parties.

Stay cool, eat sweet, be #H!P.
