Chill Out with 4 No Bake Dessert Recipes

I don’t try to hide the fact that baking ain’t my bag. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have a sweet tooth! I’ve got the sweetest tooth this side of Candyland, and I’ve found lots of no-bake ways to satisfy it. Folks, these cool summer sweets are the best because there’s no oven required. No oven! Now that’s the way to beat the heat and stay out of the kitchen this summer.

Lemon Yogurt Pie

This cool classic takes less than 10 minutes to assemble.  How can something be so creamy and yet so light at the same time?

Banana Caramel Pudding "Sundae"

It’s the peanuts, bananas and homemade caramel sauce that make this sweetie a winner.  Purists can turn this faux sundae into the real thing
by using vanilla ice cream in place of the pudding. Or, make it pareve by using soy milk and soy pudding.

Mango Melon Pops

Nothing says summer better than an icy treat on a stick.  Make your own homemade pops with fresh or frozen mango and fresh watermelon, or any of your fave fruits.

Mini Chocolate Coconut Sandwiches

Turn these into megas with jumbo-sized cookies of your choice and fill with any flavor ice cream.

Minis are great because you can enjoy just one without the guilt. (Or you can do what I do: eat seconds, thirds, and fourths of these bite-sized babies when no one is looking!)
For pareve sandwiches, substitute non-dairy sorbet and pareve cookies and you are good to go.

Double up the fudge!  You can dip these cuties into melted chocolate. Just let ‘em harden on a wire rack before freezing.

How do you beat the heat?
