During the summer, the last thing you want to do is turn on your oven and overheat your home. Luckily, you can cool down with oven-free desserts! Look at these easy summer treats to beat the heat and select your favorite recipes.
Ice Cream Sandwiches
Ice cream and cookies are fan-favorite treats, and the flavors are amazing when you combine the desserts.
All you need are two cookies and a large spoonful of ice cream. Place ice cream on one cookie and gently press the other cookie on top. You can then dip the sandwich in chocolate sauce or roll it into sprinkles.
You can also elevate your ice cream sandwiches with homemade ice cream. For instance, strawberry shortcake and cereal milk are refreshing ice cream flavor ideas you can create yourself.
Pineapple whips are rich, sweet, creamy, and tart. Essentially, this summer treat is soft-serve pineapple ice cream. However, you can leave out the cream for a non-dairy option.
Add two cups of frozen pineapple chunks, ½ cup of vanilla ice cream, and ½ cup of pineapple juice to a blender. Blend the ingredients until they become a thick, soft-serve texture. Place the dessert into serving bowls and eat immediately.
For the non-dairy option, blend two cups of pineapple chunks and one cup of pineapple juice in a blender.
Frozen lemonade is an easy summer treat to beat the heat, especially if you love creamy and tangy flavors. Add a cup of lemonade and two cups of vanilla ice cream to a blender. Blend the mixture until smooth and pour into a serving cup. The simple dessert has a milkshake texture with a lemon meringue pie flavor. If you want to enhance this recipe, add ¼ cup of lime juice for an additional tangy flavor. Overall, frozen lemonades are delicious and will cool you off on a hot day!
Homemade popsicles are simple treats with a refreshing taste. The best part is that they’re customizable! Blend your favorite fruit and juices until smooth, and pour the mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least four hours, and then enjoy this tasty treat. You can also add popsicles to a glass of Prosecco for a refreshing and fruity cocktail.
We have a shortcut for the shortcake. Slice a piece of store-bought pound cake in half, and then fill the middle with whipped topping and fresh strawberries. You can also top the treat with more whipped topping and berries to enhance the flavor. It’s easy, tasty, and a crowd-pleasing dessert.
