After the long winter the midwest has had, just having weather above fifty seems like a dessert. But now, as the temps keep rising, I’ve had cool desserts on the brain. And Coastal Living seems to have read my mind. They compiled a list of some of the best summer treats to cool off with. And they sound simply decadent.
Most of the year, I’m a chocolate-only kind of girl. But when summer arrives, I can’t get enough fruit, particularly desserts made chock-full of fruit– especially anything with mango or key limes, or my new favorite: blackberries. I’ve been adding blackberry jam to plain yogurt, and it is delicious.
The tantalizing desserts on Coastal Living’s menu are: Peach-and-Blueberry Crispy Crumble, Blackberry Ice Cream, White Chocolate-Key Lime Pie, Nectarine-Blueberry Cake, Summer Melon with Sherbert and Fresh Mint Syrup, Frozen Key Lime Pie, Waialua Chocolate Tart with Sable Crust, Blueberries and Chilled Cream, Mango Cheesecake, Lemon Buttermilk Tart, and Peach-Raspberry Cobbler. You can find the recipes for all the treats here. Just click on the dessert you want to make.
I plan to start with the Peach-and Blueberry Crispy Crumble, the Blackberry Ice Cream, the Frozen Key Lime Pie, and the Mango Cheesecake. I hope I can make them as well as they look in the pictures. I’ll report back on how my baking endeavors go!
