12 Frozen Fruit Desserts

August 20, 2014

Let’s set aside the soul-revealing debate of chocolate versus vanilla ice cream for a moment and turn to fruit instead. And what better way to enjoy summer fruit than by creating a delicious frozen treat out of it? Sure, pies, crumbles, and everything in between are great for showcasing sweet seasonal produce, but they can start to feel old as the summer winds down.

Instead, keep things fresh (and cool) with some new ways to use your fruit. Check out all the frozen fruit desserts below for inspiration.

I put chocolate chips in 95% of the things I make and am a strong proponent for lunch dessert.
