There’s always room for dessert. Especially when they’re the kind of desserts that will cool you down during this ridiculous heatwave. Seriously, we’ve spent the whole of summer complaining that it’s not hot and now it is, we just want it to go away. Plz.
We’ve picked out some easy peasy summery desserts for you to make sure you get through this hot weather.
On another note: remember to stay hydrated, folks.

BANANA SPLIT STRAWBERRIES
This is the most adorable looking dessert we could possibly find. These strawberries are stuffed with banana splits, seriously. We’re salivating just looking at these babies. We especially love the crunchy chocolate at the bottom sprinkled with nuts to add a little bit of bite to these treats.

If you like booze and coffee, you’re gonna love this sweet thang. This traditional English dessert is really easy to throw together and once again looks like you’ve put in waaaay more effort, so extra points from us. It’s kind of just stacking a load of cake and fruit on top of each other. Yum.

There’s nothing better than a strawberry cheesecake. In the summer, it’s best to go with a lighter dessert though because sometimes this heat can stop a good old dessert sesh. These mini cheesecake bites are super easy to throw together and give you that cheesecakey goodness without weighing you down.
