I’m all for traditional fruit salads. Just give me a bowlful of my mom's classic combo of strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, watermelon, grapes, and cantaloupe and I'm satisfied--especially when she spreads her famously delicious creamy whip across the top (with a smidgen of brown sugar).


No question about it, tartness and sweetness are a match made in heaven. So here we’ve collected just a few of the finest fruity desserts the World Wide Web has to offer. Enjoy!

Ricotta cheese takes the lead in this fun little recipe by Foxes Love Lemons. But don’t forget to top them off with chopped pistachio nuts or chocolate chips.

Layers of Happiness
claims that this is the Best Fruit Dip Ever, and who are we to argue? Best part of all is that the recipe is only three ingredients long: low-fat vanilla yogurt, vanilla pudding mix, and lite Cool Whip.
