Stay cool this summer with 15 sweet treats–no baking required! Filled with wholesome ingredients, these desserts and snacks are totally vegan and gluten-free so everyone can enjoy. 

We’ve reached peak summer and I am not mad about it! July is a perfect month for lying by the pool, soaking up the sun, and exploring all mother nature has to offer.

One thing I NEVER am in the mood for is turning on a hot oven whenever I crave a sweet treat. That’s where these desserts come in! Many of them are made with ingredients you likely already have on hand and come together in a flash. These are also ideal for bringing to a cookout since they’re so simple to share! Which will you try first?
