Cherry Almond Ice Cream
If you can manage not to eat the entire bowl of fresh summer cherries in one sitting (which we find difficult), fold them into this almond-flavored ice cream for a super creamy, decadent treat.
Recipe: A Sweet Spoonful
Fudgy and decadent are the best words to describe this wonderful, simple dessert recipe. They take a mere 20 minutes to pull together and appear far more indulgent than their rather healthy ingredient list lets on.

Blueberries and Cream Pie
Reminiscent of a light cheesecake with a crust made of ground pecans and dates, this dreamy confection relies on avocado and cashews to get its super creamy texture. If you can find wild blueberries, they tend to be more flavorful and will make for a really special slice of (no-bake) pie.
Recipe: Fork and Beans
Cool, colorful and sweetened with just a bit of honey, this refreshing treat is a great non-dairy alternative to traditional ice cream.

With a crust made of Nilla wafers and a filling made of pudding, cream cheese, condensed milk and whipped cream, this is one extra dreamy, cool confection that's perfect for the summertime days when it's just too hot to bake.
