LOOKING for: cold No-Bake creamy desserts

Why do I always get a sweet tooth when it's too hot to bake?? I'm looking for cold and creamy things. I don't like Cool Whip so would have to substitute something else if a recipe calls for it. I'd love something I could spoon over fresh fruit.

I saw a recipe recently that called for sweetened condensed milk, some other form of milk or cream (sour?), powdered gelatin and crushed pineapple, but misplaced it as soon as I had the ingredients. Thanks!

I've made this a few times using the ready-made sponge flan

Fruit Flan

1 baked (9-inch) pie or flan shell, OR ready-made sponge flan
2 cups pastry cream filling
4 cups strawberries, washed,hulled and sliced (you can use raspberries, blueberries, kiwi, or combination of these fruits)

Pastry cream filling:

cup granulated sugar
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1/8 tsp salt
1 cups milk
2 egg yolks, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla or lemon extract

Glaze:

1 pouch Knox Unflavoured Gelatin
cup cold water
cup boiling water
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp honey

Prepare pastry cream: In a medium saucepan, combine sugar, cornstarch and salt. Add milk and egg yolks. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat; add vanilla, and cool.

Fill flan shell with pastry cream filling. Arrange strawberries over custard layer and chill.

Prepare glaze: In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatin over cold water; allow to stand until gelatin is softened. Add boiling water; stir constantly until completely dissolved. Stir in juice and honey. Chill, stirring occasionally, until mixture is the consistency of unbeaten egg white. Using a pastry brush, brush the warm glaze over strawberries. Chill until set.

Lemonade Pie
Graham cracker pie crust

Chocolate Mousse Pie
Crust
21 chocolate sandwich cookies (such as Oreos)
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, cut into pieces, room temperature
Mousse
12 ounces semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
3 3/4 cups chilled whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
Chocolate shavings (optional)
For Crust:
Preheat oven to 350F. Butter 9-inch-diameter springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides. Finely grind cookies in processor. Add butter and process until mixture is evenly moistened. Press crumb mixture onto bottom and up sides of prepared pan to form thin crust. Bake crust 5 minutes. Transfer crust to rack and cool completely.
For Mousse:
Combine chocolate, vanilla and salt in processor. Bring 1 cup cream to boil in heavy small saucepan. With processor running, gradually pour hot cream through feed tube and process until chocolate is melted and smooth. Transfer mixture to large bowl. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
Beat 2 cups cream and sugar in large bowl to stiff peaks. Fold into chocolate mixture. Pour mousse into prepared crust. Chill until set, about 6 hours. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead.)
Beat remaining 3/4 cup cream in medium bowl to firm peaks. Transfer to pastry bag fitted with medium star tip. Pipe rosettes of cream around edge of cake. Garnish with chocolate shavings.

NOTE: If you didn't want to make the crust, Oreo Ready Made Crust is a tasty alternative.

Heres a no-bake cheesecake that should come in handy right now with the heat this summer. However, its so delicious, that its good anytime; thats why I have to leave a fork in the pan to always "straighten" the row.

Cheesecake

1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large can evaporated milk (cold to whip; refrigerate the night before)
1 pkg. (3 oz.) lemon gelatin (dissolve in hot water; let cool, getting thick, but not set, stirring occasionally)
32 squares crumbled graham crackers
cup margarine, melted
1 tblsp. powdered sugar

TO PREPARE CRUST: Use blender, rolling pin or food processor to crumb crackers. Add melted margarine and mix in powdered sugar. Line 2 pie dishes or 9 x 13 pan. Save about 1/3 cup for topping.

TO PREPARE FILLING: Mix sugar and cream cheese. Whip evaporated milk and mix with sugar/cheese mixture a little at a time. Add cooled gelatin in a little stream while folding in.

Fill shell with cream cheese mixture and chill in refrigerator for several hours.

Lemon gelatin always tastes the best, but one can use lime, orange, raspberry, strawberry. I wonder how the pineapple would taste? Anyway, enjoy! Kass in sw MI

Here's a recipe for a fruit dip.

You can probably play around with the proportions until you find your favorite blend and/or even add some whipped cream, a little vanilla extract, or a splash of brandy, amaretto, etc

Here is a link that might be useful: Fruit Dip

This is a relatively oldie recipe but very good & fits your description.

RUSSIAN CREAM
2 cups heavy cream or half-and-half
1 cup sugar
2 tsp unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups sour cream

In a small saucepan over medium high heat combine cream & sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved, about 3-4 minutes.
In a glass measuring cup stir together gelatin & water until gelatin has softened. Pour into cream mixture & stir over medium heat until gelatin is fully dissolved (if you rub a bit between your fingers, you shouldn't feel the gelatin grains.) Mix in sour cream. Pour into a serving bowl or mold & refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.~~
I served it with fresh strawberries but fresh peach slices would be excellent. I think it was also called by some other nationalities, too.
