This Fruit with Sweet Lemon Cream is a great beginners dessert recipe. It is vegan, gluten free, and the perfect remedy for this hot weather!
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.
Fruit with Sweet Lemon Cream
This is a super easy dessert. The lemon cream is not very sweet. It’s citrusy with just a hint of sweetness and 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.
What Fruit Can I Use?
Whatever your heart desires! The options really are endless! I have made this recipe with pomegranates, black berries, peaches, chopped mango, and a ton of other fruit.
You’ll love this cold dessert during these hot summer days! Give it a try.
