Nothing beats nature’s candy when it comes to sweets and desserts. If you don’t want to be weighed down by heavy cakes, doughnuts and pies during the summer heat, fruity desserts are a great alternative. We’ve chosen 3 of our favorite recipes that are undeniably tasty and totally fruit inspired.
1. Fruity Nutella Toast

The world is in love with Nutella for good reason. This hazlenutty, chocolate spread is hard to dislike. This recipe is one of our favorite because it’s simple enough for children to make and it only requires 3 ingredients max. All you’ll need is a few slices of bread, nutella and fruits of your choice. For this recipe we highly recommend strawberry and banana. This is the heaviest treat on on our list.
- Toast your bread
- Dice up some fruits
- Spread a thick layer of Nutella on your toast
- Top your choco-toast with your diced fruit
- Enjoy euphoria!
2. Grilled Peaches and Cream

This flavorful dessert is simplicity at its finest. It uses cream cheese spread or a honey nut flavored ice cream if you’re feeling naughty. It’s difficult to find people who don’t like the taste of warm peaches so this quick dessert is a home run with most!
- Slice peaches in halves
- Set grill to medium-high heat
- Brush your peaches with a light coat of oil
- Set peaches pit side down onto your warm grill and grill for up to 5 minutes
- Turn the peaches over and glaze with honey
- Scoop a spoon-full of cream cheese where the pit was
- Grill up to 3 minutes until the filling is warm
- Serve it up!

This is one of the simplest dishes you can put together for a special occasion. What we love about this one is that there’s no baking involved and if you prepare your fruit and tart in advance this whole dish can be thrown together in less than 20 minutes. First follow the directions on Sally’s Baking Addiction to create your crust/tart. You can also purchase a tart of your choice in the supermarket.
- Coat a 9 inch cake pan with nonstick spray
- Soak your dates in warm water for 10 minutes
- Pulse the dates and nuts until they reach a thick dough-like consistency.
- Spread the yogurt onto your crust
- Decorate with your colorful fruits. We chose kiwi, strawberry, pineapples, blueberries and tangerines.
- Store in refrigerator and serve!
