The weather is warming up, and you know what that means—berries, stone fruit, and the best melons of the year! Load up on bursting blueberries and strawberries, sweet peaches, tart cherries, mouthwatering watermelon, and more. If you can resist popping them directly into your mouth, try folding summer fruit into quick crisps and crumbles, dump-and-bake bars, and easy breezy ice pops. Yes, there’s some sugar involved, but if you’re craving something sweet anyway, dessert is a great way to sneak in one of your daily servings of fruit, along with some fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.
These sweet and simple recipes from food bloggers from around the web make summer fruit feel like a treat. Get inspired with this gorgeous roundup.
