I have 9 of the best ever Paleo Summer Dessert Recipes. Now you can have a great outdoor party and have the best desserts ever. I love spring and summer and I love a good outdoor BBQ. I love the hamburgers and the BBQ ribs and steak and the salads but I also love all of the good desserts. These Paleo Summer Dessert Recipes are good because they are actually healthy.
When I think about Paleo Summer Dessert Recipes I think about desserts that are easy to make. That don’t necessarily need to be made in the oven because the oven heats up the house. I also think of desserts that are light and made with ingredients that are in season and fresh. Fruit is a great ingredient for a light fresh in season dessert.
I have a lot of parties with my parents and brothers and sisters and their children. We love to have a good BBQ in the backyard and play games or go to the park after we eat. Even though my family doesn’t eat Paleo like I do they do try to eat healthily. We always have a lot of fruits and vegetables including all kinds of salads. One thing our family loves (that is except my Dad) is watermelon. We can devour a big watermelon in minutes. I just have to try some of these recipes out on my family. I’m gonna fool them, they’ll be eating Paleo and won’t even know it. 🙂
These Paleo Summer Dessert Recipes that would be good for an outdoor BBQ or not. It doesn’t matter you could make these anytime you want to.

Paleo Summer Dessert Recipes
1. Paleo Lemon Bars – My Natural Family
I spent a lot of time developing these lemon bars. I wanted them to have a thick lemon filling without absorbing into the crust. I also wanted a crust that won’t crumble and will actually hold together. Another thing I wanted was for them to not have any added sugar. What I ended up with is a shortbread-like crust with a nutty flavor that doesn’t crumble. The topping is a super tangy lemon curd that is creamy with a little bit of coconut milk to add some extra lusciousness. I think they turned out quite nicely.
2. Watermelon Cake with Whipped Coconut Cream – That Clean Life
Yes, that’s right. The inside or cake part of this cake is a whole watermelon. It’s so easy to make. Just cut the rind off the watermelon and shape it, frost it with coconut milk whipped cream. You can decorate it any way you want. Isn’t that the healthiest cake you’ve ever eaten? I’ve actually made one of these for an extended family birthday party. It was so much fun to see the faces on everyone when I cut into it. They loved it since it was a really hot afternoon.
3. Chocolate-Covered Toasted Coconut Pops – An Edible Mosaic
These are so simple to make. There are few secrets to making this pops taste awesome. The first one is to toast the coconut like the recipe states. Don’t skip that step, it really makes them taste a whole lot better. Another is to use this Pop Maker, it isn’t really expensive and is worth the money. You can use it over and over. The last is if you want a nice thick chocolate coating, you have to dip them in the chocolate more than once. After the last dip, you could dip them in anything you like such as nuts.
4. Strawberry Shortcake – Fit Mitten Kitchen
Some people are afraid of baking with coconut flour. My advice is to measure it precisely. It soaks up a lot of liquid, if you use too much, even a tablespoon too much it will change the texture of the whole cake. That’s why you use maple syrup in the cake instead of a dry sweetener. When coconut flour is involved, follow the recipe always, don’t try to sub ingredients. This will turn out wonderful as long as you follow the recipe and read the instructions carefully.
5. Mixed Berry & Whipped Coconut Cream Pie – A Saucy Kitchen
This is a super easy no bake dessert that is naturally sweetened. It only has 3 ingredients plus the fruit you choose. It takes 20 minutes to prepare and that’s it. No baking so your house will stay cool. If you like things sweet you can add maple syrup or honey but personally, I don’t think it’s necessary.
6. Watermelon Fruit Pizza with Coconut Yogurt – Paleo Hacks
This is about as easy as you can get. Slice up a watermelon, spread some coconut yogurt over it like sauce. Then place fruits of your choice on top. They used blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and cherries. It makes for a nice dazzling, healthy, cool dessert.
7. Summer Berry Trifle with Coconut Flour French Pound Cake – The Urban Poser
I always thought trifle was hard to make. I was wrong again! It’s just a moist sweet cake with rich whipped cream and seasonal berries. This coconut flour cake is perfect for the trifle. It’s a bit like a French pound cake. It’s a perfect match for creamy coconut cream and tart fresh berries. I think that the best flavors come together with simple ingredients.
8. Peach Shortcake – Running To The Kitchen
And here we have a slightly sweet biscuit topped with ripe peaches and coconut whipped cream. Sorry strawberries but I think peaches when ripe off the tree and in season make the perfect shortcake. I must be weird but I’ve never liked strawberries that much. Oh, they’re okay but I’ve never gone gaga over them like a lot of people do. I think that’s because strawberries from the store are picked before they are ripe and they just don’t taste the same as strawberries fresh from the garden. Actually, that could apply to peaches or any other fruit for that matter. I love to go to the local fruit stands and farmers market in the summer and pick up fresh local fruit.
9. Watermelon Mint Slushies – The Natural Nurturer
Watermelon – Coconut Water – Mint Leaves – Strawberries
Well, it looks like watermelon is the official fruit of the summer. At least for these recipes. I think there is a reason people naturally love watermelon so much. It’s because when it gets hot outside it’s just natural to want to eat something that hydrates you. Did you know that watermelon is 92% water? That’s true, google it. That’s why this watermelon slushy is perfect for a hot day. You don’t need a fancy blender to make this. I think this is a really good blender for the money. Sure a Vitamix might be a LITTLE better but they are also a LOT more money. Of course, it’s up to you wish blender you buy, I’m just giving you opinions and options.
