50 Summery Fresh Fruit Desserts That Make the Most of the Season's Best Produce

When it comes to summer dessert, nothing is better than fresh fruit. Berries, melons, peaches, and more are at their ripest, and most fruit can be eaten straight or doused in a little honey or cream. But sometimes you want something a little more complex, that still highlights the best summer flavors&mdashor you're looking to use up a pint of berries before they go bad. That's why we come bearing the best fruit dessert recipes that you simply must try out this summer.

Naturally sweet and full of flavor, fruit makes the perfect addition to cake recipes, pie recipes, and other treats. This season, we invite you to make a blackberry-filled dessert the freshest finale to all your summer dinners. You can also stick to classics like cherry pie and berry cobbler, but we encourage you to think outside the box, too. Try semifreddo&mdasha creamy cousin to ice cream cake that easy to make and easier to finish. Or you can add grown-up twists to your after-dinner treat, like cucumber key lime pie or blueberry-basil frozen yogurt.

A handful of cool concoctions, like a berry icebox cake and blueberry yogurt ice pops, will not only satisfy your sweet tooth, they'll also help you beat the heat. And remember, fruity fares don&rsquot need to be classified as strictly after-dinner indulgences &mdash some of these are perfectly at home at the breakfast table as they are capping off dinner. (Either way, they pair well with a cup of coffee!) No excuse is needed to try your hand at a new fruit dessert recipe (although the lemon curd mousse will be a certified party pleaser). For even more ideas, check out these healthy dessert recipes.

Basic Fruit Puree Recipes

Simple Basic Berry and Fruit Puree Recipes capture the sweet/tart balance of the summer fruit to use in jams and jellies, fruit drinks, ice cream, sorbets, granitas, fruit tarts, and whatever else you might want to use them in.

The basic fruit puree recipes use lemon juice to avoid browning in the stone fruit and to brighten the red pigments in the berries. The sugar balances the tart lemon juice and is necessary unless the fruit is super sweet. Your finished puree should have the delicious sweet/tart balance of perfectly ripe fruit, so you may need to adjust the amounts of lemon and sugar according to the sweetness of your fruit and also your taste. Fruit purees can also be used in making your own baby food.

The following fruit puree recipes appeared the The Oregonian FOODday, August 12, 2008, by Maya Klein.

Basic Fruit Puree Recipe:

Use this recipe for red or black raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries, or marionberries (but not for strawberries or blueberries).

Ingredients:

12 ounces (approximately 1 1/2 cups) fresh or frozen berries, (defrosted if frozen)*
1/4 cup granulated sugar, or more to taste
2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice

* When making puree from frozen fruit, let the berries thaw in a colander over a bowl. Once the berries have thawed, pat them dry before blending. By draining the berries first, you get a thicker puree.

Preparation:

Sort and wash berries. Drain, cap, and stem (or thaw if frozen) unsweetened berries.

In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, combine berries, sugar, and lemon juice process to a smooth puree, about 30 seconds. NOTE: Pureeing may be done in a blender or a food processor, but if using a blender, make sure that any seeds are not ground so finely that they will pass through the sieve.

Pour into a fine sieve set over a bowl. Use a rubber spatula to stir and press the puree through the sieve discard solids.

Taste and add more sugar if necessary.

Refrigerate in a non-reactive container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.

Yield approximately 1 cup of finished puree.

Basic Stone Fruit Puree Recipe:

Use this recipe with peaches, apricots, or nectarines, as well as cherries, mangos, strawberries, and blueberries.

Ingredients:

1 pound fresh or frozen fruit, pitted and (defrosted if frozen)*
2 tablespoons granulated sugar, or more to taste
2 tablespoons freshly-squeezed lemon juice

* Sort, stem, and wash ripe fruit (or thaw if frozen), unsweetened fruit.

Preparation:

In a food processor or blender fitted with the metal blade, combine fruit sugar, and lemon juice process to a smooth puree, about 30 seconds.

Pour into a fine sieve set over a bowl. Use a rubber spatula to stir and press the puree through the sieve discard solids.

Taste and add more sugar if necessary.

Refrigerate in a non-reactive container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 months.


  • Strawberries, halved
  • Blueberries
  • Blackberries
  • Pineapple chunks
  • Cantaloupe chunks
  • Kiwis, peeled and sliced
  • Confectioners’ sugar (powdered sugar)
  • Vanilla extract

Use raspberry or lemon extract in place of the vanilla.

Also, optional to serve a salad board, or any kind of food board. This salad would be delicious in the middle of this Epic Hot Dog Board or Epic Sandwich Charcuterie Board.

Easy Fruit Tart Recipe

Mrs. Beeton's Every-Day Cookery (1912)

Old English Jam Tart

Recipe for a large Open Tart of Strawberry, or Other Preserve.

Ingredients: Trimmings of puff paste, any kind of jam.

For this easy fruit tart recipe, butter a tart-pan of the usual shape, roll out the puff paste to the thickness of 1/8 of an inch, and line the pan with it, prick a few holes in the bottom with a fork to prevent the paste rising and blistering, and bake the tart shell in a brisk oven (410°F) from 10 to 15 minutes.

Let the paste cool a little then fill it with preserve, place on it a few decorative stars or leaves, which have been previously cut out of paste and baked, and the tart is ready for table.

By making the tart in this manner, both the flavor and color of the jam are preserved, which would be spoiled were it baked in the oven on the paste, and less jam is required.
