Frozen Fruit Dessert Recipes

Homemade Whipped Cream: Three-Ingredient Perfection
Chill out -- it's summertime! And we know the best way to celebrate: icy cool treats! These frozen fruit desserts, including strawberry granita and peach ice cream, are beaming with the naturally sweet flavors of deliciously fresh fruits.

Black Raspberry Cream Pie

Lip-puckering raspberries and a jar of jam give this fluffy cream pie its lovely orchid hue. Have it ready to chill in 10 minutes by using a purchased graham cracker pie shell. Top with lemon twists and extra blackberries before serving.

Strawberry Granita

Turn a fresh carton of strawberries and a little bit of lemon into a sweet glacial treat. Using only five ingredients, this blushing granita will have you dreaming of hot summer days in Italy.

Almond-Lemon Gelato

Every happy spoonful of this silky-smooth gelato is bursting with tart lemon goodness. The secret? Frozen lemonade concentrate! Who knew the freezer staple could make such a classy treat?

Fruity White Sangria Pops

Instead of sipping on sangria, try it frozen as an adorable fruit pop. Just add strawberries, mango, kiwi, and lime. This summer-perfect wine blend never tasted so good!

Frozen Coconut-Coffee Bites

These itty-bitty coconut bites pack a punch of espresso and perk up any hot summer day. Every golden bite crumbles with cool graham cracker crunch.

Cherry Gelato

Frozen dark cherries, coconut milk, and a pinch of orange peel make a mouthwatering trio in this oh-so-creamy gelato. For thicker texture, ripen in the freezer about 4 hours before scooping.

 

Editor's Tip: Ripening homemade gelato improves the texture and keeps it from melting too quickly while eating. To ripen, simply transfer your gelato from the churner to an insulated freezer bowl, then freeze until hardened.

Banana-Crunch Pops

Dip, dunk, and freeze whole bananas in cinnamon-laden yogurt and fruity granola for a summer snack pop that's perfect for kids and grown-ups alike. 

Ginger-and-Mint Lime Floats

You'll love every energizing slurp of this frothy lime sherbet float. Fresh ginger and mint sprigs make the invigorating refresher extra snappy. Add colorful straws for soda shop appeal.

Berry-Mint Granita

Vibrant raspberries and blueberries shine in this fluffy frozen granita. The ruby-red treat is made with a tantalizing squeeze of lemon and fresh sprigs of mint.

Blackberry-Lemon Ice Cream Sandwiches with Pistachio Shortbread

Soft lemon sorbet bedazzled with blackberries makes a lip-smacking filling for these shortbread cookie sandwiches. Make them extra fancy by rolling the sides in chopped pistachio nuts.

Fresh Peach Ice Cream

Nothing's sweeter than sleek spoonfuls of perfect peach ice cream. Treat yourself to a bowl draped in homemade chocolate-peach sauce, blended with a swig of peach liqueur for three times the peach goodness.

Peppered Pineapple Pops

Bring Hawaii to your backyard with a batch of frosty pineapple pops. The fruit desserts feature a frozen blend of pineapple, bananas, and berry vodka. For contrast, add a bit of spice by tossing ground white pepper into the cool island mix.

Blueberry Ice Cream Pie

Homemade blueberry sauce takes this classic ice cream cake from sweet to scrumptious. Watch the lemon-and-nutmeg-infused blueberries bubble and pop in the pan, then pour atop a crumbly brown sugar crust. Cool ice cream and a slew of fresh berries top it all off.
