Fruit Dessert Recipes

I have a confession: when I was younger, I didn’t like fruit in my desserts. There were “rules” around fruit being a healthy snack . . . chocolate was more of a dessert to me. I wouldn’t eat pie, and I would’ve laughed at a cobbler.

I will admit, I was so wrong.

I remember being in college when I discovered how amazing a piece of pie was with vanilla ice cream. This is funny, but I won’t ever forget the type of pie: razzleberry pie. I don’t even know what a razzleberry pie is, but I was dogsitting for a friend and hungry and there was a piece available. So I ate it. Warm with the vanilla ice cream in the freezer.

My opinion on fruit desserts changed at that moment, for better or worse (my hips don’t always agree with that choice). I now can find joy in fruit dessert recipes, instead of being judgy. I guess we all grow up at some point?

Fruit Desserts

I’ve put together a list of fruit dessert recipes at the bottom of this post because I wanted to share some of my favorites with you from over the years. I love trying new recipes (my neighbors thank me), and I think you should try these too.

Having said that, you can scroll down and get them . . . or you can check out when fruit is in season below. I added this cheat section if you need it. Otherwise, grab yourself some dessert and let’s celebrate fresh fruit!
