One question that might be on your mind this summer is: what makes the perfect vegan summer picnic hamper?

What Makes the Perfect Vegan Summer Picnic Hamper?

Whether you're planning a day at the beach, a hike in the woods, or just a lazy afternoon in your own garden, picnics are the perfect way to enjoy good weather and good company. And what better way to enjoy a picnic than with a delicious vegan hamper?

There are a few things to consider when putting together the perfect vegan summer hamper. Here are some ideas to help you put together a tasty, cruelty-free spread that everyone will enjoy!

A Portable Treat...

Vegan picnics make a perfectly portable treat. No need to worry about packing a lot of separate containers - everything can be stored in one handy hamper.

To create the perfect Vegan Picnic Hamper the first thing you'll need is a good cooler bag or insulated box. This will keep your food and drinks cool for hours, even in hot weather. Make sure to pack some ice packs or frozen water bottles too, just in case it's a particularly warm day.

Next, it's time to choose your picnic food. There are plenty of delicious vegan options available, so you're sure to find something to suit everyone's taste. Popular picnic foods include vegan snacks, tasty homemade treats, and easy-to-eat finger foods.

You'll also need drinks. Water is always a good idea, but you might also want to pack some vegan soft drinks, iced tea, or even a bottle of tasty vegan wine. Just don't forget the cups!

Last but not least, don't forget your sun cream, insect repellent, and a blanket or two. These will all come in handy once you've found the perfect spot to enjoy your vegan picnic feast.

What Makes the Perfect Vegan Picnic Hamper?

The perfect vegan picnic hamper is packed with delicious, portable foods that will keep everyone happy - and cool - all day long. With a few simple tips, you can put together a cruelty-free spread that's sure to please everyone. To make the perfect summer picnic basket, we recommend:

  1. Set your theme and invite your friends: Will it be an elegant red wine affair, a laid-back picnic with a vegan BBQ, or a pink prosecco picnic (pictured below) fit with strawberry and cream desserts? Make your theme choice and invite your loved ones.
  2. Order your vegan snacks or hampers in advance: This will help you make sure you have enough for everyone, and it'll save you time on the day of the picnic.
  3. Choose your location: The best picnic spots are usually quiet, shady, and somewhat close to a bathroom.
  4. Set out your blankets and enjoy! Now that you know how to put together the perfect vegan picnic, it's time to start planning your own. Gather your friends, choose your food, and find the perfect spot to enjoy a summer day.

Tasty Vegan Picnic Drinks

Vegan Wine

In 2022, there's almost a plant-based version of everything, including wine of course!

Vegan wine is the perfect accompaniment to any picnic hamper. It comes in a variety of delicious flavours, and it's a great way to support vegan-friendly businesses. For a summer picnic, you might like to go for a nice vegan prosecco or rose wine.

If red is more your thing, there are plenty of delicious vegan red wines to choose from too. Just make sure to pack some wine glasses so you can enjoy your drinks in style! And bring some kitchen rolls or napkins, just in case.

Vegan Soft Drinks

Drinks like iced tea or fruit spritzers are perfect for a summer picnic. They're refreshing, and they'll keep you hydrated in the heat. If you're packing them in a cooler bag, make sure to add some ice packs to keep them nice and cold.

Most supermarkets now sell a variety of vegan-friendly soft drinks, but they can be time-consuming to find. We recommend preparing in advance by ordering delicious vegan soft drinks online.

For a refreshing and summery drink, you could also consider taking some homemade lemonade. It's easy to make, and you can sweeten it to your taste. Simply mix together freshly squeezed lemon juice (or get creative with lime juice!), sugar, and water. Add some ice and enjoy!

Vegan Beer

Beer is often overlooked as a vegan-friendly drink, but there are actually a lot of vegan beer options available. Many big brands, such as Budweiser and some Brewdog beers, are now vegan-friendly. And, there are also plenty of smaller craft breweries that make delicious vegan beer.

When you're packing your picnic hamper, make sure to include some vegan beer. It's the perfect refreshing drink for a summer day spent outdoors!

Let's go Veggie!

Let's go Veggie!

This month it’s National Vegetarian Week 14-20th May, so I thought it would be good to share some tips on ways to change your lifestyle, whether that be reducing your meat consumption or fully committing to a change of diet. I think for most of us choosing a vegetarian diet and lifestyle is because of a strong belief that is the right thing to do. Changing your lifestyle to accommodate someone else's views will be harder to achieve without your reason why!  For me reading and understanding is the first port of call and there are some great resources out there that will support your decision, try The Vegetarian Society .
