Carter & Cavero suggests cooking with the seasons, which involves selecting fruits and vegetables that are at the height of freshness and flavor. Some fresh fruits that are available in April include oranges, strawberries, papaya and rhubarb. Try whipping up some of these tasty dessert recipes for your family’s Easter gathering!

Dessert Cups with Fruity Twist
This dessert cup can be customized to you or your family members’ taste. Break graham crackers into crumbs or use phyllo dessert cup as the bottom layer. You can put strawberries, oranges or raspberries in your dessert cups. Drizzle the glaze on top and enjoy!

Berries with Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar
The best part about this sweet treat is that it makes you feel like you’re eating dark chocolate, without the guilt of the extra calories! While this dessert recipe calls for blackberries and raspberries, it is okay to omit them if you cannot find them fresh at your local farm or market.

Olive Oil Gelato
Everyone loves gelato, but this one made with Blood Orange Olive Oil will be a game changer for your tastebuds! Gelato is a custard similar to ice cream but it has much less fat than ice cream!

Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookies
Cookies and Easter go great with each other. The smell of fresh baked cookies floating through the house can really draw in a crowd! Plus, little hands love helping bake chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen. While most of the ingredients go with tradition, this recipe calls for Colline Salernitane Extra-Virgin Olive Oil that has a slightly fruity taste.

Carter & Cavero hope you and your family enjoy the Easter holiday! Check out some of our other dessert and main dish recipes here.
