A quick and easy dessert that’s perfect for a hot summers day. If you’re looking for a healthier option, give Nobo Dairy Free Frozen Goodness a try. It’s made from avocado and coconut and tastes delicous.



Use the last of the BBQ flames to toast some marshmallows or even make some tasty s’mores.

2. Delicious Drinks 

Elderflower Cordial


A refreshing and delicious summer drink. Add it to sparkling water and mixed fruit for the perfect non-alcoholic beverage or use it to make an elderflower collins cocktail.

Brewdog Elvis Juice


This grapefruit infused IPA is the perfect summer craft beer. The strong citrus flavours will be especially refreshing on a warm summers day.



Sunny days and prosecco go hand in hand. Throw in some strawberries for extra flavour or use it to make a refreshing summer cocktail.

3. Essential Extras  

Disposable Tableware


Save yourself the hassle of washing up by using disposable plates and cups. Make sure you have plenty of napkins and wipes for all the delicious finger food you’ll be serving.

Cool Box

No one likes lukewarm beer or prosecco. Store your beverages in a cool box filled with ice to keep them chilled.




These will come in handy for making kebabs or toasting marshmallows. This quick and easy chicken kebab recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Citronella Candles


These are great for keeping any bugs and midges away. Place them inside lanterns for some outdoor decoration.




Some background music is a must for any good barbecue. A bluetooth speaker is a good option as it’s easy to transport and doesn’t require any cables.

Sun Screen


Avoid the red lobster look and make sure everyone is protected from the rays with some high factor SPF.

Meat Thermometer



If you’re having trouble cooking rare beef or worry that your chicken isn’t cooked all the way through, get your hands on a meat thermometer. It will take away all of the guess work and leave you with perfectly cooked meat.
