So go ahead and try them all, and don’t forget to share your favorites with me!

What is considered a no-bake dessert

A no-bake dessert is a type of dessert that doesn’t require any cooking or baking in the oven. Instead, the dessert is usually made by combining various ingredients and then chilling or freezing them to achieve the desired texture and flavor.

Because they don’t require an oven, no-bake desserts are a popular choice since they are usually easy to make and can be prepared quickly without generating additional heat in the kitchen. Some no-bake recipes may involve a brief stove top or microwaving step, but for the most part, these treats are easy and can be prepared in less than 20 minutes!

Tips for easy no-bake desserts

  1. For ice cream, make sure to chop up any mix-ins. Chocolate chunks, hard-shelled candy (like M&M’s), and nuts can become very hard when frozen, so it’s good to chop them up first.
  2. No churn ice cream needs a consistent temp to freeze, so place your ice cream mix in the back of the freezer (i.e. away from the door), where the temperature is most stable.
  3. Add herbs to fruit dishes. Fresh herbs can enhance a fruity dish. Mint is super refreshing with melon and citrus. While a bit of basil can be great when married with berries.
  4. Fresh citrus zest can amp up the flavors in a fruit salad or fruity dessert  – like a pudding. Plus, freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice keeps the fruit from turning brown. You only need a couple of spoonfuls to make a big difference!
  5. If your no-bake cheesecake still isn’t firm after chilling it, you can freeze it to help it set further. Make sure not to freeze the cheesecake too long unwrapped, as it can cause the texture to become gritty.
  6. When making a mousse, use good-quality ingredients. It’s important to use good quality dark chocolate as it adds a richer flavor and texture to the mousse. Also, ensure your cream is fresh and chilled before whipping.

best no-bake dessert recipes

Desserts that don’t require baking can come in many forms, such as ice cream, fresh fruit, chocolate, pudding, parfaits, and more. I even share some of my favorite Lebanese no-bake dessert recipes and a few toppings and add-in recipes, so you’re fully covered for creating some tasty desserts!
