17 Vibrant Easter Desserts With Frozen Fruit
Frozen fruit is the secret ingredient in these gorgeous spring-ready desserts. From pretty pies (like this Peach Blueberry Pie and this Strawberry-Rhubarb Pretzel Pie) to colorful crumbles (this single-serving Fruit Crumble For One is incredibly simple), we have the frozen fruit desserts to please everyone at your Easter table.
Peach Blueberry Pie
Two of summer’s best crops unite to form a classic dessert you’ll want to bring to every cookout. Our Peach Blueberry Pie is sweet and fruity with a flaky crust. Using parchment paper in the oven will help catch any drippage. Fruit pies are something that should be made a day ahead, and the longer this cools, the lower your chances of an overly juicy pie.
Grilled Peach Cobbler
Serve hot off the grill or at room temperature. Crown it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra sweet touch.
When we set out to create the best basic blueberry scone recipe, we knew it needed to be buttery and tender, but not cakey or overtly sweet—dense for sure, but not dry. These deliver on every front. While these blueberry scones are divine as-is, you can customize the recipe with whatever flavor add-ins you like.
Fruit Crumble For One
Comforting and easy to make for one (or one dozen).
Mixed Berry Scones With Lemon Ginger Glaze
Summer berry season is the ideal time to make a sweet scone that is packed with the freshest crop of juicy fruits. These scones are tender, buttery and offer a delicate lemony flavor; plus, they are filled with the perfect berry trio of strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries.
Red, White, and Blue Cheesecake Bars
Want to be the star of the summer potluck? Make a batch of these crowd-pleasing cookie bars up to two days in advance.
Raspberry Crumble Bars
Gooey and crumbly bars are the perfect snack. To give these dessert bars an extra-thick layer of fruit, we added berries to the mixture. Fresh or frozen berries will work equally fine in this recipe. For the neatest squares, cool the bars completely before cutting—or refrigerate up to two hours.
Pear-Cranberry Pie with Ginger-Almond Streusel
If you’re looking for a fresh alternative to your usual apple pie, this dessert delivers. Every component of this pie is extra special, from the buttery vanilla bean piecrust, to the juicy fruit filling, to the chunky ginger-almond streusel on top. Serve the slices warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy a sweet taste of fall.
Surprise your guests with these cute and delicious tartlets. Fresh or frozen cranberries can be used to make the tangy filling. If using frozen berries, don’t defrost them. Frozen cranberries act more like fresh cranberries than thawed ones do; the skins burst at a similar rate and they are less juicy.
Cranberry Cookies With Orange Glaze
Oh, so festive! These cakey cranberry cookies are a perfect Christmastime snack, dessert, or even breakfast.
Berry Coconut Fro-Yo
This super fruity and tasty frozen yogurt is the perfect way to usher in spring. With only four ingredients, it doesn't get much easier than this.
Our Rhubarb Cake is one sweet (but not too sweet) way to celebrate spring’s seasonal bounty. Even though it’s a cake, the texture is more reminiscent of a quick bread, such as banana bread, meaning it would be a great side dish for breakfast or fantastic if transformed into muffins.
Strawberry-Rhubarb Pretzel Pie
Remember that strawberry-pretzel salad that showed up at every church supper? We’ve turned it into your new favorite pie with a salty-sweet pretzel crust and added zip from rhubarb. We all love our classic desserts, but sometimes it is fun to change them up a bit and create something new.
Cherry Cream Paletas
Frozen cherries add a pop of color to this Creamsicle-like concoction.
Honeycrisp and Golden Delicious apples hold their shape well and won't get too mushy after baking. Brown sugar lends deep molasses flavor to the topping.
Banana Ice Cream with Berries, Chocolate, or Cinnamon
Freezing bananas transforms them into a sorbetlike treat in this easy, healthy dessert. Make sure to use very ripe bananas with lots of brown spots.
Caliente Mango Sorbet
Caliente Mango Sorbet gets its kick from red Fresno chili peppers. The fire and ice element to this cool scoop, makes it a favorite midsummer treat. Remove the seeds for a milder taste.
