During the last few weeks, we have been smacked with a huge heat wave, with humidity levels at an all-time high. This is simply a reality in the summertime, but it means that when those temperatures start to spike we need to adjust our activities. Some evenings have been too warm to sit by a fire and roast marshmallows and the days have been too warm for firing up the oven to bake. Summer is no-bake season around here and I have just the dessert to help beat the heat during this sweltering part of summer: Easy Ice Cream Pies!

These pies are just that: easy! I’ve made three different flavor combinations using some of my favorite ALDI ingredients. ALDI knows that we are all trying to deal with this crazy heat and has their Belmont Ice Cream on sale all summer (can I get a high-five for that?!).

The kids and I went and picked up several flavors (because I can never buy just one container of ice cream) as well as some other layering ingredients such as Benton’s Speculoos cookies, Clancy’s Pretzel Sticks, and some fresh strawberries. We were letting the ingredients inspire our combinations and we couldn’t wait to get back home and start “no-baking” our pies.

The first of our easy ice cream pies was a simple strawberry pie, using Real Strawberry Belmont Premium Ice Cream layered with fresh strawberry slices.

Next up was a Salted Caramel Pretzel Ice Cream Pie using the Belmont Sea Salt Caramel Light Ice Cream. This ice cream is so creamy, I wanted to jump right into the container and eat my way out. But I resisted and we layered with pretzel sticks and Berryhill Caramel Topping, instead. I’m glad I waited because this combination is incredible!

Last, but certainly not least, is the Cookie Lovers Ice Cream Pie. This pie is made with Belmont ® Premium Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, Benton’s Speculoos cookies, and Berryhill ® Hot Fudge Sauce. Woah, were these flavors made for each other.

After layering each pie, we just covered them with plastic wrap and popped them in the freezer to let them set up a bit. We have been slowly eating our way through these pies and they’ve been fun to have in the freezer for a little “fancy” dessert without any of the fuss.

We stopped at three combinations, but honestly there are endless possibilities with all of the flavors available at ALDI. Be sure to check out ALDI.us for more cool Summer recipes to help beat the heat!
