What is a no-bake dessert

A no-bake dessert is a dessert that requires no baking. The moisture from the cream and the natural sweetness of the fruit come together to create a dessert without the use of chemicals, sugar, or eggs. The result is a gluten-free, dairy-free, and easy dessert that is perfect for last minute entertaining or when you want to treat yourself or a loved one. There are many no-bake desserts on the market that you can purchase at specialty stores or online. Some of the more popular no-bake desserts include no-bake brownies, no-bake cheesecakes, no-bake meringue, no-bake Key Lime pies and no-bake key lime smoothies.

There are also many recipes that can be made at home that call for cornstarch, egg whites, sugar, and baking soda. These recipes usually involve a stovetop cookery process that requires a good deal of clean up after the fact.
