10 Best Vegan Summer Ice Cream Photos on Instagram

Summer is here, which means it’s time to eat ALL the ice cream.

This week marks the official beginning of summer, and while others are stockpiling on sunscreen, swimsuits, and sunglasses, we’re readying our spoons for three months of having ice cream for dessert. To get some chilly inspiration, we’ve turned to Instagram to find the 10 best shots that will have us screaming for ice cream. Here are our favorites.

1. @nutritiontraveler’s unique double scoop of lavender and PB mud pie in a classic waffle cone from FoMu in Chicago has us wanting to book a ticket on the next flight to the Windy City.

2. Thanks to @veganyackattack, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for this Caramel Blondie Sundae (with coconut bacon, caramel sauce, and vanilla ice cream) from Charlie’s Brownies, making the rounds at this summer’s veg festivals.

3. @gelatoblue in Newtown, Australia is pairing chocolate hazelnut praline sorbet with freshly pulled espresso for a vegan affogato we’d travel all the way Down Under for.

4. @lybyslavik provides a much-needed reminder that cool-down treats can be fresh and healthy thanks to these mango ice pops made with orange juice, coconut milk, vanilla, rice syrup, and fresh mango.

5. Austin, TX’s @sweetritual wows with gluten-free chocolate waffle cones filled with vanilla soft serve and topped with sprinkles and chocolate sauce.

6. @eatthisorg’s double nut and chocolate-coated popsicles with roasted almonds and sea salt are almost too pretty to eat, but we’re sure we can find a way.

7. @vibrantvvbeauty’s snapshot of this vibrant raspberry-chocolate coconut ice cream sandwich has us dreaming up all sorts of creamy-cookie combos.

8. Who says ice cream is all about cones and sprinkles? Sydney’s @culturedicecreamcompany gives dessert an upscale twist with grilled pineapple topped with vanilla bean coconut gelato and maple syrup.

9. @theveggiegalaxy is enjoying a toffee-flavored dairy-free twist on the beloved European Cornetto ice cream cone. We’re jealous.

10. The Austrian ice cream-makers at @veganistaicecream are combining frozen vanilla custard with homemade apricot jam and hazelnut-almond crumbs for a summer-only "Marillenknödeleis" treat at the all-vegan ice cream shop in Vienna.
