Family Favourite Cherry Desserts ~ #LoveFreshCherries

July 30, 2018

Cherry season is currently in full swing here in the UK and we feel this delicious fruit needs celebrating! Whether you find your cherries at your local supermarket or farm shop one thing is certain….these plump little beauties will certainly taste juicy and sweet. Packed with vitamin C cherries can help improve sleep patterns and are packed with antioxidants. We have taken it upon ourselves to explore some family friendly cherry based treats to serve this Summer. Which would you serve?

Straight up

Keep it simple by eating your cherries straight from the bag or punnet. Delicious on picnics or as a snack. Just make sure you take care of the seeds for little ones!

Cherry based fruit salad with yoghurt

Pair your cherries with a combination of other seasonal Summer fruits such as strawberries and raspberries before drizzling plain yoghurt on top. Add mint for a zesty garnish.

Cherry pie

The ultimate cherry dish. Stew your cherries and add a little sugar before pouring them into a pastry case and baking. Serve warm with fresh cream or ice cream.

Cherries aren’t a fruit I typically go for in the supermarket but after this little taste challenge in conjunction with BritMums I’ve discovered a range of sweet dishes that are simple to prepare and the whole family can enjoy and will certainly try again!
