5 delicious and refreshing vegan summer beverages

August is notoriously known as the most brutally hot month of the year, and we’re certainly in the thick of it. So, if reaching for a refreshing bevvy is the first thing you want to do when stepping out into the scorching heat, we’re totally with you. 

Good news — you can cool off with a refreshing drink without sipping on tons of added sugar or drinking extra calories. 

We’re sharing five delicious and refreshing vegan summer beverages that will help you cool off throughout the rest of the summer. 


5 Refreshing Vegan Drinks For Summer 

 

#1 DIY Lemon Iced Tea

Make your own iced tea with a splash of lemon for a refreshing treat. All you need to do is brew your favorite tea (could be black, green, or even decaf) and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours. 

Pour into your favorite mug over ice with some fresh lemon juice and drizzle in a teaspoon of pure maple syrup (yum!) 

 

#2 Kombucha 

If you’re a big fan of fizzy beverages but are trying to satisfy that craving a healthy way, kombucha is a great pick. Kombucha is a fermented tea that’s rich in probiotics, and there are lots of different flavor options, so go ahead and try a few until you find your favorite! 

 

#3 Fruit Infused Sparkling Water

While we’re talking about fizzy drinks, we can’t forget about sparkling water. It’s a great soda swap, and you can jazz it up with some fresh fruit or even some fresh mint leaves for a refreshing taste.  

 

#4 Freshly Pressed Juice

If you have a juicer at home, get fancy, and make your own juice. Celery, apple, and lemon make a delicious and refreshing vegan drink to help you cool off and hydrate this summer. 

Don’t have a juicer? A blender works too — just strain the juice through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer. 

 

#5 Vegan Smoothies

Last, but certainly not least are smoothies. You really can’t go wrong here — you can toss in a handful of nutrient-dense vegan superfoods into your blender and blend it all up into a refreshing plant-based beverage to nourish your body and keep you cool during the heat of the summer. 

Some great seasonal smoothie ingredients include strawberries, watermelon, pineapple, mangos, and cherries. 


Stay Cool & Hydrated This Summer

The summer months can be brutally hot, so it’s more important than ever to be mindful of how well you are hydrating. If you need some motivation to keep your hydration levels up and are tired of plain old water, consider these five delicious vegan picks — not only are they refreshing, but they are something you’ll look forward to sipping on.
