by Jennifer MomSpotted at Foodie.com

I love how in the summer a lot of our produce comes locally. Here in New England many of the regular fruits we eat are just coming into season and I stop buying produce from our local grocery store and start stopping at the local farm stands. I buy pounds and pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables this time of year and I love finding new ways to use them! Going into August kicks off the popular summer picnic parties and I’m always looking for fun desserts I can bring! Here’s 15 Summer Desserts that use Fresh Fruit in them that are sure to be a huge hit!

15 Fresh Fruit Summer Desserts

I don’t know what it is about a dessert covered in fresh fruit but it’s always the first one I reach for and I know my kids are the same way. Of course the fresh fruit dessert doesn’t always mean it’s good for you but at least I can tell myself that for the moment I’m trying them all!
