This Easy and Healthy Fruit Dessert Pizza is quick to prepare and a huge crowd pleaser!Who doesn’t love a good dessert pizza? Easy to throw together and always a crowd pleaser, you can’t really go wrong. It’s always one of my favorite treats to nosh on at a summer party.
Those dessert pizzas can be deceiving though. All that lovely fruit piled on top is trying to trick you. Normally fresh fruit dessert pizzas are made with a sugar cookie crust, some sort of cream cheese or whipped cream frosting-like layer, and then topped with the fruit. I wanted to make a healthier fruit dessert pizza without taking away the easy factor or the delicious factor. Mission accomplished.Instead of a cookie crust, I created a coconut chocolate crust with almonds and dates. Full of nutrients, I love it even more than the traditional sugar cookie crust! And it’s a no-bake crust that is ready in minutes. I used my food processor to mix the ingredients together easily. I know I always tell you this, but I don’t know what I’d do without my food processor. I use it on the daily!
Instead of cream cheese with powdered sugar or whipped cream, I used vanilla Greek yogurt for the filling. I usually just buy plain yogurt, but I figured I’d get the sweetened kind for a special treat. It tastes fabulous! I wouldn’t call this a super low-sugar dessert, but it is a healthier version of the standard dessert pizza. Believe me, though, you won’t feel deprived when you eat this!
I used fruit that happens to be perfect for the 4th of July, so if you are looking for a patriotic dessert for your 4th of July dessert table, this one should be added to your list! If you’re not using this for a 4th of July dessert, feel free to use whatever fruit you have on hand or are your family favorites. It’d be great with a lot of different kinds of fruits! Aren’t summer desserts the best?
