5-Ingredient Fruit Desserts
Written by Bryn Mooth, SparkPeople Contributor, and Melinda Hershey, Staff Writer
Angel Food Layer Cake
This fluffy angel food cake gets its moist texture from crushed pineapple. For extra flavor and nutrients, add a layer of fresh berries. Perfect for a light dessert at your next barbecue!
Top this pleasantly sweet and tangy berry mixture with ice cream or yogurt.
Simple Apple Crisp
This fruit crisp is a healthy solution when you're craving something sweet and comforting.
An easy fondue recipe that's equally perfect for a date night in or an outdoor get-together. The recipe can be easily doubled, or even quadrupled!
Banana Soft Serve
You won't believe that this banana soft serve only has one ingredient: bananas! Feel free to get creative and add your own mix-ins, like chocolate chips, nuts or berries.
Lower-Sugar Fruit and Yogurt Parfait
This fruit and yogurt parfait tastes just like the version from McDonald's, but uses unsweetened fruit and omits the sugary granola. You'll end up with the same taste and texture for a bigger (and healthier) parfait. Use plain yogurt and your favorite low-sugar cereal to slash the sugar content even more.
Grilled Strawberry Sandwich
This grilled strawberry sandwich makes a filling snack or dessert. Fill two halves of a whole-wheat pita with a mixture of strawberries and low-fat cream cheese, then grill like you would a grilled cheese.
Easy Frozen Fruit Bars
These frozen fruit bars are a cinch to make, and are a hit with kids and adults alike—especially on hot summer days! Make a batch in the morning and they'll be ready by the time the kids get home from school.
These strawberries are as delicious as they are versatile. Spoon them over shortcake or ice cream, or serve them warm with a dollop of fresh whipped cream on top. They also taste great stirred into your morning oatmeal!
You can use any seasonal fruit combination in this recipe, including nectarines, plums, blackberries, or pitted sweet cherries. The grilling really brings out the flavor of the fruit and adds a smoky-sweet dimension.
