Sure, strawberries are sugary and juicy; blueberries have a certain summery charm. But our sights are set on raspberries, which are sweet-tart, succulent and worthy of eating an entire pint in one sitting. The berry also makes an excellent addition to some of our favorite treats, from lemon-raspberry whoopie pies to PB&J blondies with a scarlet swirl of fruity jam. Here, 26 raspberry desserts to savor all year long.
26 Raspberry Desserts That Are Perfectly Tart-Sweet, from No-Bake Cheesecake to Whoopie Pies
3. Raspberry Prosecco Ice Pops
Anyone who says ice pops are for kids has obviously never tried these, which are basically fruity frozen cocktails on a stick. Serve a batch at brunch and you’ll never go back to bottomless mimosas.
7. Raspberry Crepe Cake
This stunner may look like an intense baking project, but it couldn’t be simpler to assemble. You know how to make pancakes, right? Good.
10. Blackberry-raspberry Skillet Cobbler
The thing about raspberry desserts is that they’re always welcome to guest appearances from other berries. Here, earthy blackberries balance the intensity of the raspberries and add a gorgeous plummy hue.
11. Raspberry Ice Cream
Newsflash: You don’t need a fancy ice cream maker to create fluffy, creamy ice cream at home. The shortcut? Whipped cream, of course.
13. Berry Galette
Those farmers market raspberries deserve better than to be tossed in your next smoothie. This free-form pie is honestly just as easy to make, but so much more impressive (not to mention delish).
16. No-bake Berry Tiramisu
We know, we know. Tiramisu is typically a coffee dessert. But when the berries are in abundance, why not flip the script? It doesn’t even require turning on your oven.
21. Eggnog Custard With Raspberry Jam
We see that half-empty carton of eggnog lingering in the fridge. Instead of letting it go to waste, put it to good use in this silky-smooth and festive custard.
22. Ombré Ice Cream Cake
Technically, you can use any flavor of ice cream or sorbet you like. Our favorites? Vanilla, strawberry and not one, but two kinds of raspberry.
23. Lemon-raspberry Pavlova
Lighter than a traditional cake but just as impressive to look at, this meringue-based dessert gets its flavor from lemon curd and raspberry jam. Bonus, it’s naturally gluten free.
