Our Best No-Bake Desserts
White Chocolate OREO Cookie Balls
Mini Vegan Key Lime Icebox Pies
This “custard” has an insanely rich and silky texture born from a partnership between avocado and tofu.
Mango-Lemon-Buttermilk Icebox Pie with Baked Saltine Cracker Crust
No-Bake Samoa Pie
Save a stash of Samoas (or Caramel DeLights) in order to make an epic pie that looks, and tastes, just like the classic Girl Scout cookie. Use the back of a measuring cup to press the crust into the pie plate and add heavy cream to the caramel when melting for a smoother, drizzle-with-ease consistency. Serve chilled, as you would a coconut creme pie.
No-Bake Strawberry Nutella Cheesecake
Strawberry season is an indicator of two things; it means the sun is out and the oven is off. Take a break from a hot kitchen to make this easy, fresh and stress-free no-bake Nutella flavored cheesecake. The hazelnut spread not only gives the cheesecake a velvety texture and chocolatey taste, but it also helps stabilize the pie to set up a creamy yet firm consistency when chilled. The addition of condensed milk adds a touch of milky sweetness and the lemon juice creates a mellow, zesty flavor that balances the cheesecake’s sweetness. You can prepare the crust a day ahead and also chill cheesecake overnight. This cheesecake will be a hit at any summer event, and it’s a great way to use up the season’s favorite berry.
Million Dollar Pie
Don't be fooled by the name, this Million Dollar Pie is actually quite inexpensive to make—but it tastes like a million bucks. Plus, it couldn't be simpler to toss together and requires no baking. Whip it up for a holiday meal or spur-of-the-moment party.
Lime In Coconut Cheesecake
This no-bake key lime cheesecake is served in a halved, fresh coconut for a light, fresh, and fun twist on dessert. If you have trouble finding coconut whipped topping, you can use dairy whipped topping with a drop of coconut extract mixed in.
No bake Chocolate Eclair Cake
Make day before serving
Black Sesame Ice Cream
Dark, chic, intense, and intensely decadent… this black sesame ice cream is everything rainbow-smattered foods aren’t. Offering deep toasty richness from ground black sesame seeds, this ice cream recipe is one you’ll come back to again and again. And there’s really nothing stopping you from doing just that; being that it’s no-cook and no-churn (i.e. doesn’t require an ice cream maker), this lusciously creamy recipe couldn’t be easier to whip up. While we opted to amplify the dark color using black food coloring, you can leave it out if you’d prefer. However, if you’re not food coloring adverse, add a few drops to your favorite waffle cone recipe for an exceptionally striking presentation when you serve the ice cream.
Strawberry-Banana Pudding Icebox Cake
Strawberries add brightness to this fun take on banana pudding. Instead of the usual vanilla wafers, use graham crackers, which make neater slices. An instant hit with your family and guests, this recipe makes delicious use of the fresh strawberries you pick up at the local farmers’ market.
For and easy dessert that’s sure to please, look no further than our decadent Butterfinger Pie. Although it takes only 15 minutes to whip up, this candy bar inspired treat is the peanut butter pie upgrade you won’t soon forget.
Unicorn Snack Bars
These sweet unicorn treats are adorable enough to serve at a birthday party, but easy enough to throw together for after-school snacks during the week. Adding almonds and apple chips into the mix make these snack bars more substantial and flavorful than a plain rice cereal treat, but these ingredients are easily swapped to accommodate your favorite mix-ins or nut allergies. We added a touch of food coloring to give the bars a cheerful pink hue, but it’s A-OK to leave it out if you would prefer.
Chocolate Cookie Butter Cheese Ball
For an easy, no-bake treat that everyone will love, look no further than this decadent and chocolatey dessert cheese ball. Serve with dippers like strawberries, apple slices, and pretzels. It’s like an easy-to-make (and easy-to-share) “deconstructed” take on chocolate cheesecake.
Strawberry Yogurt Cream Pie with Cereal Crust
Made with a fiber cereal-crusted pie shell, this strawberry yogurt cream pie is the ultimate no-bake dessert. With a fruity, rich filling (made even more digestive-friendly with the addition of Greek yogurt and berries *you’re welcome*), this breakfast-inspired treat is everything you want in a (somewhat) guilt-free dessert. It’s ultra-satisfying with just the right amount of sweetness, without sending you over the edge.
Horchata Icebox Cake with Spiced Mango
No-Bake Peanut Butter-Fudge Ice-Cream Pie
With its creamy filling and crispy crust, this frozen peanut butter pie is made for summer cookouts. Nothing cools you down in the summertime like a slice of a creamy, frozen pie. A secret to keeping the pie neat is to use a hot knife for slicing each serving. Dip the blade in a glass of very hot water, then wipe it off before slicing into the pie. Repeat before cutting each new slice.

Sprinkle-stained fingers are fun, fun, fun
