We’re hot! Labor Day might mark the official end of summer, but it’s still scorching in many places around the country. We’re not ready to move on to cool-weather foods. Maybe we’ll get there next week, but, for now, we’re still focused on the colder and sweeter things in life.
While we love seeing autumnal flavors in the stores and on menus, today, we’re sticking to fruit options! Last week we featured alcoholic granita recipes. This week we’re covering no-bake fruity pies your whole family will enjoy! We love pie all year round. But there is no way we’re turning on the oven.
Key lime pie is a wonderful dessert. The filling is creamy and rich. But the flavor is sharp and fresh. We think that dichotomy makes it perfect for this transitional point in the year. Some places in the country are chilly, and others are still gripped by summer. No matter where you are or what your thermometer says, we think you’ll love this! A serving has 256 calories, four grams of carbs and one gram of fiber. Get the recipe.
We love this recipe for its simplicity. The crust is just three ingredients. But, it does need to be baked for a little while. You can easily swap it for another crust on this list and get rid of the baking step! After that, it’s a simple job of whipping cream cheese, whipping cream, combining the two, chilling the pie and then topping with fruit! It’s so easy and delicious! A serving has 351 calories and five grams of carbs. Get the recipe.
We know there’s a debate around if cheesecake is a cake or a pie. We think it’s simple: if it has a crust, it’s a pie; if it doesn’t, it’s a cake. This one has a crust, so it’s a pie. Argument over. If you need something to really cool off, this frozen pie is just the thing! It’s a cross between ice cream and cheesecake that you’re sure to love. And it’s so easy to make! The hardest thing about making this pie is resisting it for the four hours it takes to freeze it! A serving has 316 calories, seven grams of carbs and two grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
This is another cheesecake with a crust. It also comes in a jar or ramakin! We love desserts that are individually portioned. It makes sticking to “just one slice” so easy: there are no slices. There’s no room for “temptation.” This is another recipe that requires some heat — you make the raspberry topping on the stove. We love the nutty crust and tart raspberry topping with the creamy cheesecake filling! A serving has 514 calories, 9.6 grams of carbs and 3.9 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We hope you enjoy one of these sweet, cool treats today!
