If your idea of a fruit dessert is a sad-looking loaf of fruit cake, back away from the canned fruit ~ very ~ slowly ~ and prepare to take some notes.

Fruits are perfection in a pie; they're the fresh and juicy crunch tucked away in a creamy layer cake, and the tangy, tasty topping of a graham cracker crumb tart. And with their rich, bright colors, they're oh-so-pretty to look at.

But the best part about fruit desserts is that, when prepared with all the right ingredients, they are the guiltless treat that'll satisfy any sugar fiend.

Up next for our Eat Well, Feel Great Challenge, we're sweetening up your day with a healthy serving of the finest fruits of the season.
