Your summer BBQ wouldn’t be complete without the perfect refreshing treat to wrap up the meal. But who wants to slave away in a hot kitchen in the already-sweltering summer heat? Not us. We found a list of easy no-bake summer desserts sure to be the perfect complement to any gathering. Here are a few of our favorites.
Creamy Pineapple Pie
This dessert contains five ingredients, looks gorgeous, and takes ten minutes to prepare. It’s the perfect blend of sweetness, creaminess, and just the right amount of tartness. You will wow your friends with this delicious pineapple pie.
Strawberry Citrus Ice
The blender and freezer do all the work in this delicious strawberry treat. You can make this dessert look extra fancy by serving it in a footed ice cream dish garnished with a sprig of mint.
Mixed Berry Tiramisu
A fruity spin on an Italian favorite, this summer-inspired tiramisu makes for a beautiful presentation. To make this dessert look more patriotic for a holiday-themed get-together, try using only strawberries and blueberries in the fruit layers.
Rainbow Gelatin Cubes
This treat is a definite kid-pleaser and takes way less time to make than would appear from the final product. You can vary the colors in these rainbow cubes to suit the occasion and use however many layers of gelatin you choose.
Frozen Greek Vanilla Yogurt
Who knew making frozen yogurt could be so simple? This Greek vanilla yogurt recipe takes only half an hour of hands-on time and requires only five ingredients besides water. When the final product is ready, garnish with the toppings of your choice.
Blackberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Cups
This recipe taught us something new. Namely that blackberries and white chocolate were made to be together. Try it for yourself and see. We love serving these in Mason jars for a rustic feel. You can substitute thawed frozen blackberries if fresh isn’t available.
