Summer is here! Which means travel adventures, lots of outdoor time as a family, and an abundance of fresh produce. We love taking advantage of our local farmer’s markets and coming home with a great load of fresh fruit. While we love eating berries, bananas, peaches, and other fruits by themselves, we enjoy finding recipes for yummy and healthy fruity desserts to use up our batch of fresh sweet treats 🙂
