Booja-Booja Summer Ice Cream Party

Ice cream is by far one of my favourite desserts, and I'm assuming it's the same for most other people. Pretty much everyone I know loves delving into a tub of Ben & Jerry's and it's a necessity for when you're going through any sort of bad situation (break ups in films always seem to involve ice cream, right?). However, what happens when you want a more nutritious and dairy-free option? Luckily, Booja-Booja are around to save the day! Their luxurious frozen desserts are made with cashew nuts and are sweetened with either agave syrup or coconut nectar so they're perfect for those who are avoiding dairy and who want a dessert free from refined sugars. They're organic, full of healthy fats (great for your skin, yay!) and are pretty much indistinguishable from their dairy counterparts when it comes to taste and texture. I've been a fan of their vegan ice cream for years so when they invited me to take part in their Summer Ice Cream Party I jumped at the chance!

As I'm a huge fan of cute crockery and floral patterns, I decided to go with a vintage afternoon tea party aesthetic, complete with rose-adorned teacups, saucers and milk jugs. Instead of tea, however, I served up scoops of delicious Booja-Booja ice cream, featuring all six of their incredible flavours:
  • Hunky Punky Chocolate (my fave!)
  • Keep Smiling Vanilla M'Gorilla (I also used this in my vegan vanilla ice cream milkshake recipe)
  • Raspberry Ripple
  • Chocolate Salted Caramel
  • Hazelnut Chocolate Truffle
  • Caramel Pecan Praline

I paired Hunky Punky Chocolate with Raspberry Ripple, Keep Smiling Vanilla M'Gorilla with Chocolate Salted Caramel and Hazelnut Chocolate Truffle with Caramel Pecan Praline. They were served in large vintage-style teacups along with adorable ceramic coloured spoons and heaps of nutritious toppings!  

As Booja-Booja is a company that focuses on wholesome, healthy living I decided my toppings needed to match their ethos; fresh cherries, raspberries and blueberries, dried apricots and goji berries, cacao nibs and various seeds adorned the ice cream, and each bite was utterly divine!

The ice cream party was a huge success and a great way of getting friends and family to try new dairy-free desserts! Booja-Booja are also running an amazing competition right now to win some delicious ice cream plus lots of other goodies; you can vote for your favourite finalist here.

Booja-Booja ice cream (and their chocolate truffles which I'm also addicted too - the Almond Salted Caramel ones are divine!) is available to buy from Waitrose, Holland & Barrett, Sainsbury's, Ocado and independent health stores up and down the country. Get your hands on some asap because it's incredible!
