5.) No-Bake Raspberry Lemon Cheesecake, By Honeysuckle
Guys, Honeysuckle’s videos and recipes are on a level of their own. And when the foodie’s obsession with no-bake cheesecakes kicked in a while ago, we were constantly checking her website for recipes and inspiration.
One of our favorites is the Raspberry and Lemon No-Bake Cheesecake, a delicious single-serving dessert with cheesecake crust, lemon cheesecake filling and raspberry sauce.
With these cheesecakes, you get the best of two different tasting worlds. The fresh sweetness of the raspberry is balanced by the zestiness of the lemon, for a light and spring-inspired flavor. We totally love it!
4.) Low-Carb Peanut Butter Truffles, By Savory Tooth
Now, these are by far the easiest on the list to make! You can whip them up in under 20 minutes if you want to.
This four-ingredient recipe is perfect if you’re tight on time or if you have guests coming at short notice for tea. Also, it’s the perfect no-bake dessert if you want to indulge yourself while still being on a low-carb diet. Easy, quick and diet-friendly? These little truffles have it all!
All it took for Savory Tooth to prepare this no-bake dessert was baking chocolate, creamy peanut butter, coconut oil and a low-carb sweetener. Neato!
3.) No-Bake Eclair Cake, By AllRecipes
Simple and easy, this recipe doesn’t involve any kind of baking or power kitchen tools, making it perfect if you’d like to introduce a child to the amazing wonders of the dessert world!
The éclair part of the dessert name might be confusing to some, though. Traditionally, an éclair is an oblong pastry made with choux dough filled with cream and topped with icing. Although in this case, the baker means to evoke another dessert, possibly inspired by Portillo’s Eclair Chocolate Cake.
The recipe, in one sentence, is a pudding mixture over layers of Graham crackers, topped with chocolate frosting. We told you, it’s extremely simple, and it provides a big sense of achievement!
2.) S’mores Chocolate Mousse, By Honeysuckle
Cup desserts are definitely in style!
We are back with a recipe from Honeysuckle (we do love her sweet treats!), this time with a cup version of everyone’s favorite: s’mores.
If there is one (relatively) difficult thing about this recipe, it would the cream whipping. And it actually speaks volumes about how fairly easy this dessert is: graham cracker crumbs at the bottom, followed by chocolate mousse layer, and then a giant marshmallow on top of it all – delightful and simple. We want s’more!
In case you caught the single-serving no-bake desserts fever, we highly recommend you to check the other videos of Honeysuckle on her YouTube channel. She even made a MatchaMisu in a jar!
1.) No-Bake Raspberry and Pistachio Pie, By Gemma Stafford
You better have some more tummy room for this last no-bake dessert, because it is the epitome of a succulent unique cake!
For those with an insatiable sweet tooth on the lookout for new flavor combinations to try, Gemma Stafford from Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking will be your new dessert inspo!
It will be hard for anyone tasting this raspberry and pistachio pie to suspect that it is completely oven-free. Simply put, this recipe is composed of a bottom layer of plain cookies, followed by raspberry puree, cheesecake cream whipped with toasted and ground pistachio, and decorated with heavy cream, raspberries and chopped pistachio.
It’s an elegant and fancy recipe with a wow factor that will delight everyone who tastes it!
