These may sound a little difficult and more time consuming than usual, but they are totally worth the effort! Here are a few recipes you can try: 

    1. Mango Float Freezer Cake



    This classic no-bake dessert is a sure crowd-pleaser. Plus since it's no-bake, you don't need an oven! If you haven't tried making this yet, this dessert needs at least three hours in the freezer so best take that into consideration if you're serving it at a party.
