8 Refreshing Fruit Desserts to Try for a Healthier Dessert Option

Sometimes all you need is something sweet to crave your sweet tooth. Unfortunately most things that taste sweet have a lot of sugar. The good news is that there are still some options to choose from that’ll be a healthier alternative to sugary sweets. Fruit desserts are sweet and have essential vitamins too. Here are 8 refreshing fruit desserts to try for a healthier dessert option.

Baked Apples 

You get all the deliciousness of an apple pie without the extra carbs! Bake an apple in the oven or wrap it in tin foil and stick it over the fire pit. Wait until the apple is soft then sprinkle cinnamon and brown sugar over it. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to top it off.

Tin Foil Peaches

This is basically the same as the baked apples but instead of apple pie, it’s peach cobbler! Put the peach over the fire pit or put the peach on the grill. Grilling a peach makes it even tastier. Adding ice cream never hurt either. If you want to leave out some of the fat, simply add cinnamon to the peach. 

Watermelon Cake

This is simple! Cut big circle slices of a watermelon, cut off the rind, stack the pieces on top of each other like a layered cake, cover the entire thing with whipped cream, then top with your favorite fruits. There’s no baking, no mixing, and no guilt.

Watermelon Pizza

Cut a thin circle piece of watermelon with the rind on. The rind will act as the pizza crust. Lather the piece of watermelon with whipped cream, then top with more fruit! Mandarin oranges, kiwis, raspberries, and blueberries all make delicious toppings. Slice the watermelon like a pizza and let everyone get a slice.

Fruit Popsicles

Make your favorite healthy smoothie but instead of just drinking it, pour it into molds and put a stick in it. Freeze it and pull it out of the mold using the stick. You’ll have ​delicious and healthy popsicles.

Fruit Salad

Mix all your favorite fruits together for a smorgasbord of flavors. You can make a simple syrup to top the fruit with, or just enjoy them as they are. Adding sugar will also bring out the flavors of the fruit and increase the sweetness.

Fruit Kebabs

Let everyone build their own kebabs. Get skewers and a variety of different fruits. Some people might choose to make a tropical kebab with bananas, mangos, and pineapples while others might make a berry kebab with strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. After everyone has created their kebab put sugar, whipped cream, white or milk chocolate on it.
