This summer is no joke.  No.  JOKE.

It’s hooooot in Atlanta right now!  It upsets me greatly when I look at my weather app and see that Atlanta is hotter than Miami!  I used to live in Miami and don’t think that’s normal.

Why?  Just, why?!  😩

Anyways, I’ve never been a huge fruit eater.  I usually consume my fruit by blending it in my green smoothie, but these days I’ve been munching on mangoes, lychee, pomegranate, and just regular bowls of cold, refreshing, fruit.

This is a super easy dessert.  You can use any fruit you’d like.  The lemon cream is not super sweet.  It’s citrusy with just a hint of sweetness.  The creamy texture goes great with the fruit.  You could also add some pistachios, almonds, pepitas, or any other nut/seed on top for a little crunch.

You’ll love this cold dessert during these hot summer days!  Give it a try.

    I haven’t thought about putting a lemon cream sauce on anything before. I bet it’s going to be delicious 😃 I love pomegranates and mangoes. I can’t wait to try this out.

    Mmm, that seriously looks delicious! I’d probably try this with strawberries, bananas, and pineapple topped with cashews over the lemon cream. Pinning for later!

    That looks so good and healthy. I normally don’t really like cashews or dates, but if I don’t taste it a lot, I would probably able to eat it haha. Gotta love fruits! http://www.clairebearblogs.com
