So, summer times are all about eating fresh, light, and everything sweet. Here are five  summer desserts that are easy to make, hydrating, and tasty to eat. So, let’s binge on!

  • Cake Pops: Mostly, when we order cake online for any celebration like birthday, anniversary, we are always left with some for the next day. In case; you do not wish to eat the leftover cake, you have the option to devour cake pops.
  • Crumbled the left over cake
  • Now make balls from the cake crumbs
  • Insert a toothpick or skewer into the balls and set them in the freezer
  • Take the balls out after 10-15 minutes
  • Dip them in molten chocolate, vanilla or any dip of your flavour
  • Coat it with colourful sprinkles
  • Frozen Popsicles: When the temperature soars high and you need to cool down, have a frozen popsicle. A bite of the frozen popsicle teleports you to Iceland–where everything is Thanda Thanda, Cool Cool.
  • Take any summer fruit–orange, lemon, jamun, watermelon, grapes
  • Squeeze out the juice.
  • You can also add chunks of the fruit into the juice
  • Take a popsicle mould, pour juice into it, insert the stick and freeze
  • After a few hours, your frozen popsicle will be ready

  • Cakes: When it’s about desserts, cakes are a must. And for the sweaty summers, ice-cream cakes and fruit cakes are known to give the relisher the much-needed cool and sweet vibes. If you are a resident of Noida (like me), then you can also order these cake flavours online and can avail at your doorstep via cake delivery in Noida. But, for the ones who love baking, here is the recipe.
  • In a bowl, whisk flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda.

  • Pour the batter into a cake tin and bake for 30-45 minutes.
  • Now top the cake with fresh fruits of your choice

  • Mango Mousse: Summers are all about tasting the tangy-sweet produce of the season–mangoes. When you have mangoes and crave for something sweet, you make mango mousse–sweet, creamy, and seasonal.
  • Chop mangoes and blend them in a blender
  • In a bowl, add sugar, mango puree, and whipped cream
  • Beat them until soft and fluffy
  • In a glass put some whipped cream, and then the mango smoothie
  • Garnish with mint leaves.
  • Milk Ice-cream: An ice-cream a day, keeps sadness away! Summers tend to be incomplete without creamy and icy ice-creams. They make for a refreshing and tasty snack that can be eaten all day because once is not enough when it’s about ice-creams.
  • In a bowl, add milk powder, vanilla essence, and sugar mix them
