Easy to make No Cooking Recipes and Treats for the traveller

Updated on October 12, 2010

This could make life easier for you

We all need to find those simple easy to make dishes especially when camping and caught out without an oven.

So give one of these a try and let me know what you think.



1 small cup sugar

2 egg whites

Flavour with Vanilla essence

1 cup Hot water

3 teaspoons Gelatine

A pinch of salt


Dissolve the gelatine in the hot water then cool. Place all ingredients in a bowl and beat until fluffy and thick. Grease a tin with butter and tip in the ingredients. It will set within a few minutes. Use a 30 cm flat tin. Decorate with fresh whipped cream, and decorate with strawberries or any fresh fruit of your choice. You could even sprinkle with crushed nuts if desired.

Fruit Salad Tart


1 tblsp Gelatine dissolved in ¾ cup Hot Water

1 tin condensed Milk

Juice of two lemons

1 small tin Fruit salad

2 bought flans (or precooked ones)


Mix all ingredients together, and place in 2 flan cases.

OR: Use any fruit of your choice and top with fresh whipped cream.

Orange Jelly


1 pkt Orange Jelly

1 can Carnation milk

1 Orange


Make up the packet Jelly as directed on packet and leave to cool. Beat chilled can of carnation milk until thick, then beat in the cooled jelly. Place this in a bowl to set in fridge. Decorate with orange rings. Top with fresh cream if preferred.

Banana Icy Poles


1 cup Yoghurt

2 Bananas

2 tblsp Honey

2 tblsp Milk


Peel the bananas and blend in blender (or food processor/ or mash with fork) Add the other ingredients and blend till smooth. Pour into icy pole moulds and place into the freezer. Leave for approximately 4 hours or until solid.

Please note: I have been given these to try, but so far as I am travelling around Australia I have not tried or made these as yet. But it will make it easier for me by not having to waste time cooking them.

So give it a burl and let me know what you think of these ideas.

      sweetie pie The chocolate ones sound really yummy. I failed with the pavlova, although i am wondering if it was because I didnt have a proper beater only used one of those things like a barmax. It just would not thicken properly. Please let me know if anyone has any luck with it if no good I will take it off. Can't have failures up there. Sorry they said it was great. I eat a bit of it once cold but like marshmallow. Not what I was expecting at all although it just didnt thicken to peaks so maybe......

      Last night we had an unexpected gathering of 10 people. Made up of relatives and friends from London UK. What did we have for Sweet?

      Yes one of Val's top of the range Pavlovas, topped with cream, strawberries, bananas, and mulberries. with a little Passion fruit.

      all this preceded by beef strogonoff. all very impromptu Tasted like a King.s dinner

      look forward to your comment when you arrive home on making banana Ice poles.

      I am getting worried, you may decide to stay away permanetly

      My family used to make a healthy version of chocolate bananas by creating a choclate sauce to dip the bananas in and then freezing these. It makes a healther and more yummy alternative to ice cream. i like your idea for banana icy poles.
