In the middle of the summer, the last thing we want to do is turn on the oven to make a cake—our AC is already working overtime, after all. That’s why we love having an array of awesome (and simple!) no-bake desserts in our arsenal. Check out the slideshow below for some of our favorite kid-friendly picks, none of which will leave you a sweaty mess. Sounds like a win-win situation to us!

Frozen Banana Split Pie

What kid doesn't love banana splits? This pie from The Kitchen Is My Playground is sure to be a smash hit with the whole family, with its layers upon layers of ice cream, pineapple, bananas, pecans, and, most importantly, homemade chocolate sauce.
