It's that time of the month where lots of the subscription boxes are being sent out, and I was happy to receive The Vegan Kind's box in the mail the other day. Let's take a closer took shall we?
Smooze! Fruit Ice Coconut & Mango (pack of 5, £2.75)
Oh hell yes! I've been wanting to try these out for ages but could never find them in my local Waitrose or Sainsbury's. They're made from just freshly pressed coconut milk and blended with fruit juice puree, so they're vegan, dairy free, gluten free and don't have any preservatives or artificial flavours etc. You just pop them into your freezer and enjoy them as a healthy ice lolly. Perfect for this humid weather we're having at the moment - can't wait to try them!
GranoVita Vegetable Pâté (125g, £1.75)
Sadly I was less excited about the second item that I pulled out of the box, but it's simply because I'm just not a fan of pâté, even if it is vegetable based. With subscription boxes you always run the risk of getting something that you don't like but not to worry as I live in a shared house, so at least I know it won't go to waste.
Foods Of Athenry Chocolate and Raspberry Cookie (60g, £1.50)
I was excited about this giant cookie though! Look at the size of that! I really enjoyed the Cookie Shots from Foods Of Athenry which were in March's box, so I know I'm going to love this. Gluten and wheat free and a great size for popping into handbag to stop you from getting hangry.
Green People Natural Tan Accelerator Sun Lotion SPF 15 (100ml, £13.50)
Sunscreen is always welcomed with open arms by me and I've had the pleasure of using this all natural one from Green People before (and it's really good). Suitable for sensitive skin, it's 82% organic and contains a natural tan accelerator ingredient that's derived from carob which helps to speed up the tanning process and reduces overall tan fading as well. In addition, it has SPF 15 and feels moisturising but not greasy or sticky. Win-win.
Hoots Cheese and Onion Multigrain Snacks (35g, £0.60)
These are very tasty as I've purchased them myself in the past and love anything that's cheese and onion flavour. Crunchy, baked not fried, wholegrain little bread snacks that are a good healthy alternative to crisps and contain a lot less fat. I find that they go well with a sandwich or with a bowl of soup instead of croutons!
Good Full Stop Chocolate and Orange Bar (35g, £0.85)
I haven't heard of this brand before but the idea of a healthy chocolate and orange fruit and nut bar definitely appeals to me. This bar counts as one of your five a day and includes a mix of dates, cashews, raisins and orange peel mixed with dark Belgian chocolate. Yum!
This month's recipe card is for a Creamy Avocado Pesto Pasta which sounds amazing and very easy to achieve, and 10p of each box sold goes to the not-for-profit, Teen VGN's Vegan Summer Camp for young vegans.
