Ahh, summer! I love you. Hanging by the pool. Longer days with a relaxed pace. Family vacations to warm sunny beaches. And lots of BBQs and parties!
If you’re going to a cookout this summer or gathering for the 4th of July, this No-Bake Fruit Pizza a perfect dessert to bring. It looks so festive with the red, white, and blue.
Have you tried a fruit pizza? Maybe you’ve had the typical kind made with packaged cookie dough, marshmallow fluff and/or cool whip, and lots of refined sugar. Well, you won’t find ANY of those ingredients here. This healthier fruit pizza is made with a few simple whole food ingredients like almonds, dates, coconut, lemons and a touch of maple syrup or honey. And fruit, of course!
This dessert is raw, gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free, grain-free, refined sugar-free, vegan and Paleo. (That’s a mouthful) But even those who eat a standard American diet will enjoy this! 🙂
The crust is like a big chewy cookie. And it’s filled with a thick frosting made with easy homemade coconut butter and decadent coconut cream! YUM. Plus, it’s super simple to make. All you need is a food processor to to the work. No need to turn on your oven on a hot summer day.
Summer also means lots of fruits in season! Beautiful fresh decorations for yummy treats. You can use whatever fruit you like on your fruit pizza. And get your creative juices flowing to make your own design! It’s so fun! Peaches, raspberries, blackberries, kiwi, and sliced grapes would all be good choices to use. But I especially like how the lemon complements strawberries and blueberries.
Look at the thick layer of frosting you can really sink your teeth into. Yaaas. But it’s not like the sicky-sweet kind you’d get from frosting in a can. It’s bright, lemony, and so much healthier! Get in my belly.
So fresh and summery! Fruit pizza made from real food makes me happy. 🙂
