Best summer desserts (without using the oven!)


Hasn’t this summer been the best? The long days, sunny weather and never-ending heat have certainly made this summer one to remember.

The only trouble is it’s been way too hot to actually bake. As much as I’ve wanted something sweet in the house, the thought of turning on the oven has put me off almost* every time.

I can’t be the only one struggling, so thought I’d pull together a quick wrap-up of my favourite summer desserts that you can make without turning on the oven. Enjoy!

*I have a recipe to share with you next week that was a worthy exception – you’ll love it!


Jelly Tip ice cream bowl – because you can’t beat ice cream in summer! This recipe takes the classic Jelly Tip ice cream to the next level with plenty of raspberry and chocolate goodness.

Simple strawberry & rhubarb cheesecake – flavoured with a little cold brew tea, this cheesecake is sure to be an instant favourite. It’s on high-rotation at our place every summer!

Lighter no-bake cheesecake – looking for something a little lighter? Then try this cheesecake made with unsweetened yoghurt instead of cream. Don’t worry – there’s still cream cheese though!

Strawberry champagne Tim Tam slice – decadent, sweet and perfectly chilled? Tick, tick, tick!

No-bake lemon slice – think crushed biscuits and plenty of lemon! This tangy slice is the perfect afternoon treat during the summer months.
