Hey y'all! I have to be honest, I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I'd rather munch on some carbs or a batch of Nana's No Bake Ranch Flavored Oyster Crackers than sit down with a bowl of ice cream or a massive slab of cake. But when fresh fruit is thrown into the mix, all bets are off. I will tear up a fruity dessert like it's nobody's business!
One of my favorite things about the spring and summer months is the abundance of fruits. I'm a fruit maniac when the weather warms up so it's no surprise that my favorite summer time desserts feature lemons, limes, strawberries and other fresh fruits!
There's nothing better than relaxing on the patio with a fresh bowl of fruit. One of my favorite things to do is cut up some strawberries, fresh pineapple, grapes, and other seasonal fruit and dip them in The Best Damn Fruit Dip. I swear it elavates the fruit and takes it to a whole new level!
We all know that fruit and yogurt go incredibly well together, but have you tried them together in pie form? This 3 Ingredient Yogurt Pie is not only refreshing but it's super easy to make. What I love most about this pie is that you can have so much fun playing with different flavor combinations. You can make this dessert using any flavor of yogurt you'd like. Feel free to go wild!
Ever since I was a little kid I have loved the idea of an ice cream cake. Cake and ice cream are the ultimate combination! You won't believe how easy it is to make this Simple Baked Alaska! If you whip one of these bad boys up, I guarantee you'll be everyone's hero!
What is your favorite fruit? To me, there's nothing better than a sweet, plump, juicy, red strawberry. When it is paired with my favorite dessert, a cheesecake, it's heaven! I created this super fun, Strawberry Cheesecake Dip, for my sister-in-law's baby shower and it was a hit! It's incredibly creamy and deliciously sweet making it the perfect dessert dip for summer!
Dessert dips are becoming all the rage. If your a Pinterest fanatic like I am, you'll see all kinds of crazy concoctions! One of my favorites takes a Florida tradition, key lime pie, in dip form! My Easy As (Key Lime) Pie Dip tastes incredible on cinnamon pita chips or graham crackers. It is guaranteed to have you coming back for more!
There's something about lemons that just scream warm weather to me. This light, decadent dessert is perfect for brunch, picnics and dinner on the patio. Lemon Cheesecake Crescent Rolls are covered with a sweet glaze and filled with a delicious cheesecake filling. I guarantee you'll love this one!
