My daughter and I love to bake however the summer can be scorching at times! So when we can’t handle the oven heat we think outside the box when creating recipes. We also love to incorporate fresh fruit in our desserts. With fruit in mind, this recipe was inspired by the flavors of Tampico Tropical Punch. Did you know that a serving of Tampico is just 30 calories? It’s perfect for an afternoon tropical refresher!

We’ve been having lots of fun participating in the Summer Scrapbook Challenge with Tampico! Continue to follow us on our Summer activities as we go on adventures and create delicious recipes with our family!

 

Since the summer began my family and I have been changing a few ways we eat to keep healthier. So with that being said we were aiming for a more healthy dessert. Pizza is one of my favorite dishes so my daughter and I came up with an easy fruit pizza recipe. Together we created a guilty free dessert option that we know you will love to recreate with your family. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pineapple
  • Cherries
  • Oranges
  • Greek Yogurt (your choice of flavor)
     

 

Directions:

1) Begin by slicing the bottom from the pineapple. Starting with the cut side down, carefully slice the outer layers of the pineapples away from the fruit. Slice pineapple into coins.

Round slices of fresh pineapple make an easy and delicious no-bake crust for a healthier fruit pizza that cuts down on carbs. 

2) Top each pineapple ring with greek yogurt.

Greek yogurt is an excellent source of calcium. We chose cherry flavored which paired well with the fresh cherries however you can choose any flavor you like.

3) Peel oranges and cut into slices. Pit cherries and slice in half.

Oranges are a good source of several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin C and Cherries are a good source of fiber.

4) Add fruit on top of the mini pineapple pizza. Enjoy!
 

 

This recipe is also super easy to make with tons of variations by just changing up the fruit topping and yogurt flavors. If you have smaller kids this is a great recipe to get them involved and also making it a learning experience by talking about all the vitamins and nutrients in all the ingredients. 

What is your family's favorite summer dessert?
