It looks great, and you can vary it all sorts of different ways, depending on what fruit you like and what’s in season. Strawberries are an excellent all-around choice, but when fresh raspberries are in season, I like to use those. For a creamier base, try using mascarpone cheese instead of cream cheese. This soft, spreadable Italian cheese is rich and has a much more complex flavor than cream cheese.
Check out these fruit dessert recipes, too:
- Grilled Peaches – A simple, elegant dessert that’s perfect this time of year!
- Strawberry Cupcakes – Unlike many strawberry cupcake recipes, this one is not made with flavorings or Jello. It uses real strawberries both in the cupcakes and the frosting, and you can taste the difference.
- Chocolate Bananas – Who doesn’t like eating food on a stick? These frozen chocolate bananas are as fun to make as they are to eat.
