60 Fruit Dessert Recipes

60 Fruit Dessert Recipes

There is still a LOT of snow on the ground here in Colorado, but I’m dreaming of peaches.  Plums. Strawberries picked from the field. Tart red cherries and rhubarb. Basically, summer.

In service o60Ff my everlasting goal to make eating healthier a little easier, I thought I’d round up a list of recipes that make fruit the star for dessert.  You won’t find any crisps or crumbles, buckles or brown bettys here. These recipes rely on the fruit and some strategic application of heat, herbs and spices, and creamy things to make them a little more amazing than they already were.

Many of these recipes have syrups and sauces that go with them, but you don’t necessarily need them. Use these as a jumping off place for creating your own recipes. Add the ice cream or don’t. Serve with a cookie on the side or don’t. Whatever your healthy eating goals, these recipes can be a great starting place to help you get there — without giving up dessert.
