Mocha Cappuccino Ice Cream Pie is a winning, no bake summer dessert! This decadent pie is comprised of coffee ice cream, chocolate chips, sweetened whipped cream, drizzles of caramel and hot fudge, nestled in an Oreo cookie crust.
If it weren’t for the temperature outside, I’d have a hard time believing that it’s already August. I can’t remember a summer that seemed to fly by faster than this one. Thankfully, we’ve had both a warm and wet summer, so the local farmers markets are brimming with local produce. I’ve managed to put up several batches of strawberry freezer jam, a dozen pints of no sugar added strawberry basil jam, as well as a few dozen pints of strawberry-rhubarb jam. Basically, my boys will be snacking on All the Strawberry Jams for the next few months.
They’re totally fine with that idea.
All of the home canning, combined with temperatures in the mid to upper 80’s means that my house has been h-o-t! I realize that temps in the 80’s would be a welcome reprieve to some, but here on the 45th parallel? Well, we Northerners tend to wilt when it gets this hot.
The hot temperatures outside, and my self-inflicted hot temperatures inside means that the last thing that I want to do is to turn on the oven to cook an actual meal, let alone bake any desserts. My family suffers so. Ha! Not really. They’re perfectly happy eating grilled chicken or steak fajitas every night of the week, so I can pass the proper meal prep on to Bacon Slayer.
Dessert is something that my family is far less likely to compromise on. In fact, if their mama doesn’t bake on a regular basis, the Sons think nothing of telling tales of woe to anyone who will listen. They are definitely spoiled by my baking habit.
Although I consider myself a Pie Gal through and through, I have no problem buying a ready-make pie crust at times such as these. To be honest, I prefer to buy an Oreo pie crust so that I don’t eat the remainder of the cookies in the package after making the crust myself. Portion control is not my strong suit when it comes to cookies. Besides, buying a ready-made crust makes it all that much easier to whip up a no bake pie!
Because priorities, Friends. I have them.
Mocha Cappuccino Ice Cream Pie is swiftly becoming a family favorite dessert. This decadent pie is a blend of coffee ice cream and miniature dark chocolate chips, topped with lightly sweetened whipped cream, and decorative drizzles of salted caramel sauce and chocolate sauce–all of which is nestled in an Oreo cookie crust.
Let’s face it. What’s the point of coffee of chocolate isn’t involved? The flavors of coffee and chocolate compliment each other so well. The only thing better than coffee with chocolate is coffee with chocolate, whipped cream, caramel, and more chocolate! Each bite of Mocha Cappuccino Ice Cream Pie tastes like a fancy coffee house beverage, without heating up the house or your body.
If you’re looking for an easy, no bake summer dessert recipe that looks like you spent all day making it, then Mocha Cappuccino Ice Cream Pie is for you!
