Get ready to make the most of these last lazy days of summer with not just one but two delicious no-bake dessert recipes! If you like a bit of spice with your sweet flavors, you’re going to love these! This is of the best summers in Montreal! The weather was (and still is) gorgeous with few showers and lots of sunshine! To soak up that sun, I try to go out into our community pool whenever I can. I am hooked on my weather app and plan my days accordingly. On those gorgeous days, I wake up early and work from 5 am to 1 pm. Then I enjoy the pool with the kids. Our winters are so cold that I need those days to keep me going through those frigid months. The downside is that I don’t get much cooking done, let it alone baking! I fired up my oven maybe twice since the beginning of the summer. What do I do? I use my BBQ to the fullest and try to come up with no-bake recipes and desserts!
Even, if I had time to bake a rich dessert, it is so hot that I don’t feel like doing it or eating a heavy cake anyway! I need something refreshing! There’s nothing like fresh fruits from my farmer’s market to help me achieve that. Today, I am sharing 2 delicious no-bake desserts that even your pickiest eater will ask for more. They can even make them for you (don’ we love to get spoiled by our kids?). Curious? Read on and see how you can make delicious fruit spring rolls and yogurt bowl with Blue Dragon and Patak’s Canada products!
No-Bake Dessert Recipes with a Kick: Fruit Spring Rolls & Yogurt Bowl
Some ingredients are a staple in our home. Aside from the eggs, milk, and flour, we always keep things like fruits, nuts, and Greek Yogurt on hand! I can think of endless ways to eat these but one of my favourite is a bowl of yogurt topped with nuts and fruits! It’s my favorite no-bake dessert. It is also a great snack, breakfast! I can eat it anytime of the day! When I was challenged to make a spicy dessert as part of my ambassador program with Blue Dragon and Patak’s Canada, I decided to add a spin on my favorite and easy desserts!
Ingredients for both desserts:
- Your favourite fresh fruits of the season. I used peaches, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
- Your favourite nuts. I used walnuts.
- Plain Greek Yogurt
- One package of Blue Dragon Canada Spring Roll Wrappers
- One Jar of Patak’s Canada Hot Mango Chutney
Note: I did not add quantities on purpose because it depends on the number of people, your taste and whether you want more fruits than nuts.
No-bake fruit desserts directions:
Fruit bowl with nuts and Hot Mango Chutney
- Transfer 1 cup of Greek Yogurt to a serving bowl
- Add fruits and nuts to taste.
- Top with 1 tsp of Hot Mango Chutney.
And oh my! The Mango Chutney added a wonderful kick to my fruit bowl. Plain Greek Yogurt is really PLAIN and the fruits of the season can be a little sour. But adding Hot Mango Chutney compensated for that and big time! It was a wonderful taste for the palate and crunchy too! Bonus, it is ready in just a few minutes and everyone can mix and match whatever they like. My daughter loves blueberries but is not a fan of raspberries, so she made a bowl with raspberries, nuts and a touch of Hot Mango Chutney. I, on the other hand, love all the fruits so I added them all with a delicious spoonful of Mango Chutney. Don’t you love mixing a Little India in your desserts?
Fruit spring rolls
This is another wonderful no bake dessert and fun to make too.
- Prepare the spring roll wrappers per directions.
- Put each individual wrapper on a serving plate
- Fill them with fruits and nuts. I filled one wrapper with blueberries and strawberries. I filled another one with peaches and blueberries.
- Then dip them in honey
The mix of fruits and nuts will add a delicious crunch to your wrappers! You can even dip them in a coconut cream like I did last year for these mango kiwi spring rolls. East is made easy with this recipe.
