8 Fruit Desserts That Are Delicious and Just a Little Healthy

Winter Citrus Pavlova: This vibrant pavlova uses navel oranges, tangerines, and grapefruit, so stock up on citrus fruits. The fruit is layered on a meringue foundation with handmade lime curd, whipped cream, and finely chopped pistachios for crunch.

Strawberry Cheesecake Bars: A pound of strawberries and freeze-dried strawberry powder make these colorful cheesecake bars pink. The cream cheese swirl and salty pretzel crust complement the roasted fresh berries and freeze-dried strawberries' sharpness.

Tropical Fruit Salad: Instead of a tropical trip, try this tropical fruit-forward salad. Fresh pineapple, papaya, mango, and kiwi shine in a lime juice dressing over creamy coconut yogurt. Sprinkle coconut flakes for extra delicious kick.

Cherry-Vanilla Bundt Cake: A cascade of cherries buried within the delicious, moist crumb makes this bundt cake stand out. This showpiece involves adding yogurt-enhanced cake batter to the pan in two batches with store-bought cherry pie filling.

Sheet-Pan Apple Crisp: This apple-filled treat is crunchy, sweet, and wonderful. Instead of a glass baking dish, bake this delicacy on a sheet pan for perfectly golden edges. This recipe asks for Gala apples, but Braeburns, Honeycrisps, and Pink Ladies work well.

White Chocolate Pomegranate Cheesecake: We love this photo-worthy gingersnap cookie foundation with white chocolate and pistachio topping cheesecake. This dish has lime zest, pomegranate arils, and a sauce, so you don't have to hunt far for the fruit.

Lemon-Blueberry Cake: Layer vanilla sandwich cookies, lemon sorbet, and blueberry jam for a delectable 25-minute no-bake cake. After layering, top the cake with homemade whipped cream and freeze for a few hours.

Pumpkin Bread Trifle With Pepita Streusel: Pumpkin is a fruit, so it's excellent for a fruit dessert roundup. First, bake a basic pumpkin bread. Next, make a sweet, crumbly streusel using flour, sugar, butter, pumpkin pie spice, and pepitas for crunch. Finally, sweetened cream cheese binds this delectable treat.
