Summer is here for a few more weeks and I’ve got a lot of socializing to do. I am also still in the mode where the less of my oven I see, the better. I am just not in the mood to dive into a complicated baking recipe when the sun is shining and I am ready to go jump in the lake. Instead, I tend to concentrate on no-bake desserts, especially the ones made with fruit. I love the naturally sweet taste of fruit especially while it is in season. It really doesn’t take much to whip together an easy fruity treat—the longest part is usually the washing and chopping! Here a few of my favorite no-bake fruit desserts for summer that I hope you and your family can enjoy!
Keep it simple and serve up some delicious fruit tapas to your friends and family!
