Print This Post Print This Post

It’s about this time of the year when no-bake dessert recipes are jumping in popularity (and they will stay popular all summer!). I don’t know if it’s because the weather is starting to get warmer, or people are just sick of baking all winter. Whichever or whatever the reason we fully embrace the ease and simplicity of no bake desserts.

It’s just plain ridiculous to me that such simple dessert dishes can taste so spectacular, and downright sinful (at times). I’m of the mindset that anything that can be made with Cool Whip or made into layers easily is OK by me. The love for no-bake knows no boundaries either; you like cookies, pies, trifles, puddings, cakes?… Well there are no bake versions of all of these and more, so get ready to have your world (and taste-buds) rocked!

We’ve put together our ultimate list of 10 no-bake desserts that are perfect for the changing season. Really, we’ve got it all in here; a taste for whatever your mood or pleasure.

The ultimate treat in most no-bake recipes are the pies; there are more no bake pie ideas than anything else! It’s truly amazing how easy many of these recipes are. Here’s our list of the ultimate pies you just have to make this season:
