When summer comes around, there are a lot of fun things to do including one of my all time favorite summer dessert ideas, eating richly. I love all kinds of desserts but nothing has a special flavor like a rich chocolate dessert. One of the great things about chocolate is that it is never too cold. You can make delicious and relatively simple desserts regardless of whether it is early in the morning or in the dead of winter.
If you want to incorporate a nutty flavour to your summer dessert ideas then there are a few easy ways to do this. One of the best no-bake recipes for ice cream uses roasted peanuts. You simply add roasted peanuts to a mix of evaporated coconut milk, maple syrup and non-fat milk. You can then bake in a single layer and serve chilled.
Ice Cream Sandwich Cake
Another popular summer dessert idea is to try an ice cream sandwich cake. This delicious dessert is very easy to make. It consists of a scoop of vanilla ice cream, softened nuts and a scoop of your favourite ice cream, covered in whole milk.
If you are thinking about exotic fruits then you may also like to try some no-bake summer dessert ideas including chocolate or strawberry cheesecakes. Both of these summer desserts are very easy to make. All you need is a cake pan, a knife and some food coloring. You can choose to go with a traditional chocolate or strawberry cheesecake or something more adventurous such as the peanut butter and banana cheesecake. Another popular dessert is the no-bake coffee cake. This is very similar to the coffee cake but it is made with a variety of coffee or tea flavored batter.
Summertime brings with it many delicious desserts that you will enjoy and look forward to. These ideas only scratch the surface. You should get out your recipe book and really start cooking so you can impress your friends and family. You can experiment with just about anything as long as you put in the right ingredients and the right amount of them.
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
There are some no-bake summer dessert ideas that you can experiment with. For example, what if you wanted to make a cheesecake? A great recipe for this is called Chocolate Covered Strawberries. All you have to do is melt some chocolate over a medium heat. It will start to turn into a cake but you can cover it with a layer of Graham crackers or fresh strawberries for a nice presentation. You can make this as a dessert rather than a fruit because strawberries don’t taste too good with fruit.
Don’t think you have to limit yourself to summer desserts when you are planning for a special occasion. You can still come up with a great dessert regardless of the season. One idea you may want to try is a fruit salad. All you have to do is mix in apples, oranges, bananas, grapes and a variety of other fruits. This is actually very popular no-bake summer dessert ideas and it tastes delicious. You can make this as an alternative to any kind of mixed greens salad.
Another summer dessert ideas you may want to try is a fruit tart. Again, all you need is a frozen blend of fruit such as bananas, apples, cherries, and strawberries. Combine these ingredients and then put them in the refrigerator until your desired consistency is achieved. You can bake these at home if you have a microwave but you can also purchase the frozen ones. Some companies sell both so you can do your comparison shopping to find the best price.
