Wimbledon Vegan Grand Slam

Tennis fans across the world are gearing up for the Wimbledon tournament, which kicks off today. Viva!’s Vegan Recipe Club are here to give you the low-down on how you can celebrate it in vegan style!  

Wimbledon is regarded as one of the most prestigious and oldest tennis tournaments in the world. Millions of viewers all over the world tune in each year to watch players battle for the various titles.  

So, whether you are lucky enough to be at the Centre Court or are watching from home, Viva! has shortlisted their top tips to enjoy a vegan Wimbledon! 

Strawberries and Cream  

Strawberries and cream are of course synonymous with Wimbledon.  Legend has it that the tradition was started by Thomas Wolsey, a powerful figure in the court of King Henry VIII. It is thought that Wolsey first served strawberries and cream at a banquet in 1509 and it has been a hit with fans ever since.  

Dairy-free cream is delicious, affordable and widely available in most supermarkets. Here are Viva!’s top 5 to provide the perfect accompaniment to those sweet, sweet strawberries!  

Food Heaven Whipped Spray Cream 

This cream is amazing! Think old-school squirty cream and you’ve got it – perfect for picnics as you can spray directly onto strawberries… or straight in the mouth! Buy online here.  

Nature’s Charm Coconut Whipping Cream

Viva! love this coconut whipping cream. Leave it overnight to chill then empty it out and whip. It creates an amazingly thick whipped cream! You can use tinned coconut milk in the same way but just the thick creamy layer on the top and not the watery liquid on the bottom (so separate them after chilling).

M&S Coconut Cream
This M&S coconut cream is incredible – thick, creamy, tasty! Find it in their chilled free-from section.

Oatly Creamy Oat Fraiche
So creamy, so delicious and so versatile! This is an amazing offering from Oatly and tastes very similar to its dairy counterpart. Can be found in most major supermarkets and online.

Alpro Single Cream
Alpro single cream is an excellent single pouring cream which can be used for strawberries, cooking, desserts and any other way you fancy! Probably the most widely available vegan cream.
