Finally, warm weather is upon us! Celebrate the gorgeous weather with these refreshing summer desserts. We provide a variety of alternatives that are great for entertaining all summer long.

If you're in the mood for ice cream, make your own with this easy recipe for  blueberry ice cream. This summer dessert is made with yogurt, coconut liqueur and a touch of lemon juice for balance.

This chocolate and vanilla trifle is so easy to make even the kids will want to help. The filling is made using a combination of cream and yogurt which lightens it up and provides a great contrast to the chocolate. If serving this to children you'll want to omit the rum.

If you love fruit, try making this classic peach melba. Created by the great French chef Auguste Escoffier, this dessert features a refreshing mix of peach, raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream.

When the summer beat gets to be insufferable, turn to this aromatic citrus dessert made with orange, grapefruit, peppermint and lemon verbena. It's one of the best refreshing summer desserts.
