We love summer baking, but when it’s really hot outside those ovens should stay off. Beat the heat with these six no-cook desserts, which are incredible easy to prepare, no stovetop or oven required.
|Orange Cream Pops
Adults and kids alike will love these homemade pops, reminiscent of the creamy orange treats you used to buy from an ice cream truck. Freeze the pops in standard molds, or try the alternative method, which doesn’t require any special equipment. You can also skip the sticks altogether and just serve it in scoops, as you would ice cream.
We love that granitas can be made without an ice cream maker or popsicle molds, and pink grapefruits make the most beautiful granita. For the best results, squeeze your own grapefruit juice or buy it fresh and unpasteurized from a juice bar or market.
This modern version of Neapolitan ice cream is layered in a loaf pan for a pretty presentation. If you really want to gild the lily, drizzle each slice with hot fudge sauce.
Fold blackberry puree into freshly whipped cream, and you’ll have a light, delicious dessert in a flash.
Our favorite Italian dessert is made with ice cream in place of mascarpone cheese and assembled in individual molds to simplify serving for a new twist.
|Philadelphia-Style Vanilla Ice Cream
This style of ice cream skips the step of cooking a custard on the stovetop. It’s made by simply churning milk, cream, sugar and flavorings, so it’s quicker and easier to prepare.
