Last weekend we hosted a little BBQ with some neighbors. I wanted to make a dessert, but I did not want to heat up my kitchen. So I grabbed a new book I just got, “101 Gourmet No-Bake Desserts in a Jar” and found a recipe I love! When it came time for dessert I just reached in the fridge pulled out a big ol’ trifle that seriously took no time at all, and then I looked like a rock star. HIGH KICK!
So I scoured the Internet for some other wonderful no-bake desserts that feature fun summer flavors so YOU TOO can look like a rock star.
(DOUBLE HIGH KICK!)
Love and Donuts,

Pineapple No Bake Cheesecake 1 of 16Pineapple No Bake Cheesecake from My Baking Addiction
I can't wait to try this dessert. Pineapple is the perfect summer flavor.
Ice Cream Waffle Sandwhich 2 of 16Ice Cream Waffle Sandwich from Martha Stewart
This is one step more complicated than putting ice cream in a bowl, and I respect that.
Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Popsicles 3 of 16Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Popsicles
A peanut butter popsicle?!?! Covered in chocolate?!?! Be still my heart.
Angel Food cake Pushpop with Pink Lemonade Frosting 4 of 16Angel Food cake Pushpop with Pink Lemonade Frosting
You can buy those reusable push pop containers at a craft store or big box store. I love the idea of filling them with ice cream or this yummy mixture of cake and frosting.
Watermelon Coconut Picnic Chiller 5 of 16Pineapple Watermelon Coconut Picnic Chiller from The Alison Show
I created this dessert with the intention that you can make it ahead of time and keep it in the freezer. Then when it's time to serve it you simply add a fizzy drink and enjoy the watermelon slush. So refreshing and pretty.
No Bake Mini Grasshopper Pies 6 of 16No Bake Mini Grasshopper Pies from A Pretty Life
These would be such a delicious dessert to pass out at a summer baby shower.
Banana Pudding with Salted Caramel 7 of 16Banana Pudding with Salted Caramel from Just a Taste
I LOVE banana pudding with Nilla wafers. The salted caramel takes this from a playtime snack to seriously decadent treat.
Salted Chocolate Frozen Banana Bites 8 of 16Salted Chocolate Frozen Banana Bites from Gimme Some Oven
Add "salted" to any dessert recipe title and I'm pretty much sold. This is an elevated version of the frozen banana, and as they say, "There's always money in the banana stand."
Almond Joy Milkshakes 9 of 16Almond Joy Milkshakes from Design Sponge
My mom's favorite candy bar is an Almond Joy, so I love finding recipes what play with those flavors.
Red White and Blue Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Diip 10 of 16Red White and Blue Skewers with Cheesecake Yogurt Diip from Skinny Taste
What says "BBQ" more than a skewer? And these would be perfect for a make-ahead dessert.
Strawberries and Cream Trifle Recipe 11 of 16Strawberries and Cream Trifle Recipe from The Alison Show
This is SO yummy and so easy to whip, HA, up.
No Bake Cookie Dough Blizzard 12 of 16No Bake Cookie Dough Blizzard from Minimalist Baker
This is a fun gluten free, no bake and dairy free, yeah, dairy free dessert.
Russian Cream 13 of 16Russian Cream from The Alison Show
You will be SO GLAD I gave you this recipe. It's creamy, rich, gluten free and TO DIE FOR. Seriously, you're welcome.
Blackberry and Ginger Trifle 14 of 16Blackberry and Ginger Trifle from Martha Stewart
I love trifles, and I love them even more when served in their own little cups.
Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake 15 of 16Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshake from Miss in the Kitchen
I like the idea of serving milkshakes after a dinner party and having everyone make their own. It would be a fun way to get to know new neighbors.
101 Gourmet No-Bake Desserts in a Jar by Wendy Paul 16 of 16101 Gourmet No-Bake Desserts in a Jar by Wendy Paul
I own this book and love it. It's not like you really need a "recipe" for a no-bake dessert, but this book has so many great ideas and it's really nice to have them all in one place.
