On a hot summer day, just the thought of turning on the oven can make you sweat. That’s where no-bake desserts come in.
Sure, you’re likely fulfilling your ice cream quota for the year, too, but it’s nice to have other options when it comes to sweet summer treats.
Whip one up in just a few minutes, and you’ll be calm, cool…and satisfied.
9 Delicious No-Bake Desserts
Raw Brownie Batter
It’s gooey, sweet, and instead of giving you a sugar crash, it’s filled with protein for long-lasting energy. And you can make it in five minutes or less, no hot oven required.
Vanilla Almond Popsicles
Have you ever bitten into a Good Humor Toasted Almond Dessert Bar at the beach? This is just like that, except it’s actually healthy.
Choco Avocado Pudding
This creamy, delicious dessert can also be eaten as a snack since it’s made with just four healthy ingredients (plus a fifth nutritious garnish). Using avocado as a base makes it the perfect consistency and honey adds nutrient-rich sweetness.
Coconut Matcha Bites
Eat one of these as an afternoon snack for non-jittery energy via matcha (plus delish flavor via coconut and maple syrup).
These classic treats are as easy as it gets (and will be a crowd pleaser with the kids, too). Just dip bananas in really good dark chocolate, add crunchy, salty almonds or peanuts, freeze, and enjoy.
Chocolate Protein Balls
You just throw some ingredients in a blender, shape them into balls, and then put them in the fridge to firm up. Also, they taste like wholesome Reese’s peanut butter cups. Hurry, get to work.
Greek Yogurt Popsicles With Goat Cheese and Honey
Your friends will think you’re super fancy when you tell them what’s in these, and especially once they taste the tart yogurt paired with tangy goat cheese and sweet honey.
