Cranking up the oven on a hot summer day is sheer torture. Why bother? With these delicious no-bake desserts you'll enjoy refreshing sweet treats that will help you keep cool while enjoying the sunshine. We're particularly fond of the fruit-based icy treats and the indulgent desserts for chocolate lovers. Take a look below to discover your favorite way to beat the heat. Here's what to make:
Chocolate and Vanilla Trifle
We love that his easy no-bake dessert (pictured above) can be made in individual portions. The rum-soaked sponge cake layered with chocolate and cream is pretty addictive.
Delicate and fragrant sorbet is garnished with melon balls and lavender - a lovely treat to serve at your next summer gathering.
Chocolate Ice Cream
Chocoholics will adore this sinful ice cream made with a double dose of chocolate. Serve with a generous dollop of whipped cream...if you dare.
Wine-poached pears shouldn't be limited to the holidays. This no-bake dessert is perfect for summer and pairs exceptionally well with ice cream. For a nice twist, you can try making it with white wine instead of red.
