I absolutely love baking with fruit, which is why you’ll find many fruit desserts here on the blog.

So here are fifteen of my favorite, easy fruit desserts that will have you begging for summer to stick around just a tiny bit longer.

15 Easy Fruit Desserts

1. Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake

This could quite possibly be one of my all-time faves! It’s tart from the lemon, but sweet from the raspberries. Oh, and that cookie crust on the bottom just makes it to-die-for!

2. Strawberry Oat Bars

These may feel more like something you’d like to eat for breakfast, but top one of these healthy strawberry bars with ice cream, and you’ve definitely fallen into dessert territory. Although, I will never turn down ice cream for breakfast.

3. Blackberry Crumble Bars

Okay, another easy fave of mine. I actually made these as a birthday treat for myself last year because they were just so dang good! Bonus that they’re also gluten free, and super easy to toss together last minute.

4. Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble

If we’re sticking to the crumble theme, then this strawberry rhubarb crumble is going to be a must-make for you. Rhubarb becomes soft and sweet when baked with a hefty amount of strawberries. Top this crumble with vanilla ice cream {see the trend?} and you’ve got yourself the perfect easy fruit dessert.

5. Gluten Free Rhubarb Cheesecake Bars

Speaking of rhubarb…these bars will have your mouth watering in no time. I’m not even kidding when I say that I ate the entire pan of these bars. The crust is made from a combo of walnuts and dates, giving a crunchy texture to compliment smooth cheesecake filling.

6. Blueberry Peach Cupcakes

Is it a muffin, or is it a cupcake? With a hefty swirl of cream cheese frosting on top of these blueberry and peach studded babies, I’m calling them cupcakes. Call them whatever you’d like, but they’re a must make…especially with how delicious peaches are right now.

7. Very Berry Bread Pudding

This very berry bread pudding is a simple yet extremely delicious dessert to serve for Valentine's day or any day of the year. It's made with brioche or Hawaiian sweet bread. No refined sugar and dairy free. Make this easy bread pudding for your next dessert. #healthy #breadpudding #easydessert

Bread pudding may seem more like a fall, or even winter dessert, but when you top it with fresh mixed berries, you’re transported directly into summer-time.

8. Lemon Raspberry No-Bake Cheesecake

Lemon Raspberry No-Bake Cheesecake - Cool, creamy, sweet and tangy, these no-bake cheesecakes are perfect for 4th of July or a summer-time cookout.

Looking for a super simple, fast and healthy dessert? Try these no-bake mini cheesecakes. They’re super adorable and come together in no time. Plus there’s an exciting surprise in the cookie crust you might not think of.

9. Vegan Raspberry Jam Bars

These thick and chewy vegan bars are an absolute dream. A chewy bar that’s topped with an easy homemade chia jam will have your friends asking you for the recipe.

10. Fresh Fruit Salsa

This was one of the first few recipes I posted on the blog, and for good reason. It’s super easy to make, and is perfect for parties. It can be made with all different kinds of fruit as well.

Trifles may be one of the easiest desserts ever known to man. This one is a combination of your favorite summer fruits {I chose strawberries and blueberries for this one}. Plus cool whip and angel food cake. Can’t get much easier than that, huh?

12. Strawberry Cake

I’ll be totally honest, this recipe was not meant to be what it turned out to be, but I was so happy with it I couldn’t go back. Thick slices of dense, chewy, gluten free cake studded with fresh strawberries and white chocolate. Yea, I think you’re ready to make this one too.

13. Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

This recipe may scream 4th of July to you, but to me? It screams summertime fun and freshness. The cheesecake filling is one that will knock your socks off. Dip these fresh filled strawberries in different colored sprinkles to make them work all summer.

14. Healthy Apple Crisp

While apple crisp may seem much more like a fall recipe, I couldn’t help but include it in this summertime round-up. Mainly because apples are just as fantastic in the summer as they are in the fall. So this healthy version is a must-make!

15. Dairy Free Mango Coconut Popsicles

We couldn’t end this summer fruit dessert roundup without popsicles. When I was a kid, we always loved those freezy pops. Now? I much prefer these healthy, dairy free, fresh mango popsicles to cool down on a summer night.

Even though it may feel like summer is coming to a close, these fruit desserts can be made all year round. Use them to brighten up a winter evening and bring a little sun back into your life.
