When it’s warm outside and you’re having people over, it couldn’t be easier to entertain and feed the guests than with these simple no-bake recipes! Apart from saving you precious time, munching on these deliciously cool treats is the perfect way to round up your meal and liven up the mood.
Ice and Shine
There’s nothing quite like taking a bite out of an icy, cold popsicle on a hot day. Make your own healthy homemade version with in-season produce and fun, creative moulds that you can easily buy online or from the local grocery store. If you don’t have ice-cream moulds, freezing the purees in small plastic cups work too. This Fruit Popsicle recipe uses watermelon, kiwi and some blueberries, but don’t let that stop you from changing up the ingredients!
More Frozen Treats
Still feeling the heat? These refreshing and show-stopping ice cream recipes are the perfect way to provide you with some cooling relief. Kick things off with your very own yoghurt ice cream - frozen fruits, some plain yoghurt and sugar are all you need - and garnish it with pink sugar for a decidedly gourmet flair. If you prefer something more decadent and luscious, opt for this Simplest Peanut Butter Ice Cream or Easy Peasy Nutella Ice Cream, which as the names suggest, are a cinch to prepare.
Desserts for Drinks
Enjoy a moment of refreshment with a glass of healthy smoothie that tastes like dessert! Smoothies are a brilliant and tasty way to load up on nutrients, while keeping you full and satisfied. And there is nothing simpler; all you need is 15 minutes to make this Banana Oat Smoothie to get you all pumped up for the day ahead. If you love a combination of chocolate and fruity flavours, then this Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie is a must-try.
Fast, easy, healthy and definitely tasty, it’s time to take a fresh approach to the all-time favourite cheesecake! With a prep-to-serve time of under 30 minutes, this Non-baked Blueberry Cheesecake Pots is the perfect dessert to try when you’re on the run. Cheesecake tartlets are another popular and eye-catching option for last-minute events. Using store-bought tartlet shells, fill them up with a no-bake cheesecake filling of your choice before topping it off with freshly cut fruits.
Parfait means ‘perfect’ in French - and with a dish this gorgeous, it’s hard to disagree. There’s no better way to appreciate the sunny outdoors than with this elegant dessert of Vanilla Parfait with Summer Fruits. Rather than serving it in alternating layers of ice cream and fruits in a tall glass, this unconventional recipe calls for the dessert to be served in small slices with a garnish of berries.
Bring your party to a cool, sweet high with this impressive looking Macaroon Trifle with Strawberries and Vanilla Cream. With a choice of caramel-flavoured or coffee-laced macarons, plus a dash of orange liqueur, this is one trifle that will have adults asking for seconds!
