Queen Ina is at it again, blessing us with the recipes that we didn’t know we needed in our lives (but now that she’s let us in on her secret, of course that’s all we can think about). The most recent download happened over on Instagram, where she posted five different summer desserts to make before summer ends. Which one (below) will you be tackling first?

Mocha Chocolate Icebox Cake

Pick up a bag of store-bought cookies tonight (Tate’s is preferred!) and make this mocha chocolate icebox cake. You’ll also need some Kahlúa, espresso powder, mascarpone, and heavy cream while you’re at it.

Peach & Blueberry Crumbles

I don’t know about you, but I’m panicking thinking about all the ways I didn’t take advantage of fruit this summer. These easy crumbles from Ina seem like an easy way to rectify this situation.

Mixed Berry Pavlova

Pavlovas are such a great summer dessert because they’re light, airy, and the perfect pair for a mound of fresh fruit. They’re also great for sharing with friends!

Sparkling Grapefruit Granita

Granita is the perfect dessert to cool down with this month, and all you need are four ingredients: sugar, salt, grapefruit juice, Champagne. Easy!

Raspberry Baked Alaska

There’s no dessert that’s quite as dramatic as a baked Alaska. This version from Ina is vanilla ice cream and raspberry sorbet covered in meringue that gets the torch treatment.
