Four summer desserts to make you ditch the summer diet

Does anyone else fancy more sweet treats in summer compared to any other season? We don’t know if it’s the warmer weather or social occasions, but we love enjoying a fantastic summer pudding when the sun is out.

But before you pop out to grab a tub of ice cream, check out our favourite summer desserts below. Be it to wow your guests at your next BBQ, or simply to enjoy after a day at the beach, it’s time to say goodbye to that summer diet with our top picks below…

Key Lime Pie | Jamie Oliver

We must admit…key lime pie may be one of our favourite ever desserts. Don’t worry about not having any Graham crackers to hand. Simply head to your nearest Central store and stock up on digestive biscuits – they work just as well!

Jelly & custard trifle squares | BBC Good Food

A sure-fire hit with adults and kids alike, these cute retro puddings using “cheat” ingredients means less time baking, more time enjoying the sunshine.

Pina Colada Cheesecake Bars | Delish

If you like Pina Colada’s you’re going to love these scrummy miniature cheesecakes. The pineapple curd is tangy yet sweet and compliments the whipped cream and maraschino cherries to perfection.

Prosecco Grapes | Delish

We love this simple yet oh-so-fabulous dessert that combines our favourite tipple – prosecco! Simply soak grapes in prosecco in the fridge for an hour, drain in a colander and coat in sugar. Yum!
