Fruits dessert is a very easy delicious dessert with a sweet taste and crunch of the fruits in between. This makes a great healthy dessert for kids and very easy to make too. My mom makes this dessert for special occasions when we were kids and we used to finished this off in no time! My little princess adopted the same habit of her mother now:)
