Summer is that time of year when you let loose and enjoy the sunshine. Bonfires with friends, games with the kids, and BBQ. Thankfully, this time of year calories don’t count! Here are five incredible summer desserts that you can serve at your next get together.

Strawberry Peach Tart

Similar in texture to a pie, yet easier to make, this delicious treat calls for ripe strawberries and peaches to fill a buttery, flaky crust.  Top it with a sweet glaze and enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

S’mores Bars

Nothing quite says summer like s’mores. These decadent bars offer the perfect combination of fluffy marshmallows, smooth chocolate and crunchy graham crackers. They’re as chewy as a chocolate chip cookie, yet taste like a s’more.

Old Fashioned Donuts

Fried dough tossed in sugar. That’s pretty much what a donut is and you know what, they’re delicious. This recipe is quick and easy to mix up and sure to taste just like those treats you used to make with grandma back in the day.

Frozen Oreo Pudding Cake

Who doesn’t love oreos?! This cake is super easy to make and calls for only six ingredients, including creamy cheese, cool whip and instant pudding. Pop in the freezer and enjoy this on a hot summer evening.

Lemon Zucchini Bread

This sweet and tart cake is incredibly refreshing and not too heavy. It’s topped with a sweet glaze and is the perfect breakfast treat or served after dinner with vanilla ice cream.
