WELCOME TO YOUR FAV SUMMER TREAT

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 Memorial Day or the 4th of July, this No-Bake Fruit Pizza a perfect dessert to bring. Total crowd pleaser!

My whole family LOVES this recipe. It’s something I’ve made over and over, and I bet you’ll want to, too! Bonus- you can make it look super festive using red & blue berries 🙂  No-Bake Fruit Pizza (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

This is not 1985

Have you tried a fruit pizza? It was popular many years ago.. but it was 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! :)No-Bake Fruit Pizza (Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free)

Giant Cookie + Healthy Frosting

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.

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.

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.

FRUITY-LICIOUS

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.

ENJOY your pizza, friends!! 🙂

Instructions
To make the crust:
  1. Pulse all ingredients together in a food processor until sticky crumbles form. Press firmly into the bottom and sides of a parchment-lined 9" cake pan or tart pan. (I place parchment on top and press with a flat measuring cup)
To make the frosting:
  1. Add the shredded coconut to a food processor to make coconut butter by blending for about 15 minutes until liquified (stop to scrape down the sides a couple times, as needed.)
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blend thoroughly. (Frosting will be thin, but thickens when chilled)
  3. Pour over crust and set in the fridge for 20-30 minutes (uncovered) to lightly set the filling.
  4. Garnish with fruit of choice and return to the fridge for a couple of hours to firm up. When set, grab the parchment to lift pizza out of the pan. Use a pizza cutter to slice. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links. If you click through and make a purchase, I may earn a small percentage at no additional cost to you.

I recommend Thai Kitchen Organic Coconut Milk.

Make sure to always buy full fat coconut milk (in a can, never a carton). Save the leftover coconut water! It's very healthy and full of electrolytes. I put mine in smoothies and homemade frappuccinos. 🙂

To Store: Keep refrigerated, loosely wrapped. Should last about 5 days, depending on which fruit you choose.

I don't recommend banana, pears or apples as toppings, since they brown quickly. Freezing not recommended.

    So beautiful, Emily! Thank you for sharing it with us at Allergy Free Thursdays!

    Would you mind if I included it in a roundup of healthy, no bake recipes I’m doing?

  2. Amisha says:

    Can this be made with any other nuts besides almonds? Also, I have coconut flakes. Could that be used instead of shredded coconut?

    • Emily says:

      Yes! Use any nuts you like. I recommend cashews or walnuts.
      And coconut flakes will work too, but I would process them in the food processor first so they aren’t as large 🙂
