SUMMMMER IS HERRRRRE!!!!!!!! Who else is excited? BBQ’s, the beach, FRUIT PIZZA! Ok so every year around this time I feel pretty solid about wishing summer was year-round. Until we have an epic meltdown at the beach or pool, and I am reminded that being active in the summer with little ones has some major challenges.
I’m not trying to be a negative Nancy over here, but for realz – by the time we pack up to go to the beach (snacks, sunscreen, towels, umbrella, hats, toys, wagon, sunglasses, sand shoes, diapers, swim diapers, etc etc etc), I’m exhausted before we even head out the door. Not to mention I still have a baby that takes a morning and afternoon nap, sooooo it’s like, “haul booty to get to the sand asap, then start packing up before we miss the nap window!!!!” kind of experience.
Look, I wish the baby could sleep anywhere, I do. But my awesome sleep training skills also means I’ve trained that little one to sleep in his crib, on the dot – no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Super awesome if you’re a work from home mom, not super awesome if you actually want to have a life on the weekends. So although you may think our summers in Southern California are spent on the shores of the Pacific Ocean or hanging around the community pool all day, I want to take this opportunity to tell you…True Life: We Are Lame.
Ok ok, back up, we’re not totally hermits. I mean, we try to venture out. The beach is just hard sometimes. So then you’d think, “hey, they must go to the pool like EVERY day!” Yeah no. We’ll make it happen now and then, but the community pool is sans a baby pool. Which SUCKS for a mom with a toddler and an infant.
So what the heck do we actually do all summer? I guess we just sorta hang out and eat…?
I admit, I’m a bit of a homebody. I like chillin’ on the weekends at my favorite place, my house. That means sidewalk chalk all over our driveway, the bubble machine on all afternoon, walks to the park just across the street, neighborhood gatherings with cocktails in hand, and eating on our patio every single night. And nothing gets better for dessert than this no bake paleo fruit pizza. It’s soooo quintessential summer.
Bing able to get all the affordable, organic ingredients in one spot by visiting my my local Kroger Family grocer is clutch. ‘Cause when dessert calls, no one wants to make 4 stops to get all the ingredients, am I right?! This healthy version, made with a nut-free flax cocoa crust using Arrowhead Mills flaxseeds makes my heart swoon. It could be my favorite summer dessert, ever. Plus who wants to turn on their stove when it’s like 98 bajillion degrees out? No bake is where it’s AT. And honestly, the hardest part of this entire recipe is cutting the fruit to look pretty. So my vote is don’t even make it look pretty, just throw it on. I mean, especially if you’re like me and havin’ this beauty at home anyway…
Here’s the dealio – the crust of this no bake paleo fruit pizza is so insanely easy to make, naturally sweetened, and packed with healthy stuff like omega-3’s and fiber, you may not want the traditional version ever again. Topped with a beautifully whipped coconut cream and MAGIC. This no bake paleo fruit pizza is a fantastic dessert for anyone with nut allergies too – all flax, all the way.

Time Saver Tip
You can make this no bake paleo fruit pizza in two parts. Make the crust first, then refrigerate until you are ready to assemble to coconut cream top and fruit!Print
No Bake Paleo Fruit Pizza
- Yield: one 10" pizza
- 1/2 cup Arrowhead Mills Flaxseed
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- 2 tablespoons coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 10 medjool dates
- 2/3 cup full fat coconut milk
- 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice
- fruit – strawberries, kiwi, blueberries
- Pour the flaxseed, coconut flakes, coconut oil, cocoa powder, coconut flour into a food processor and add 10 pitted medjool dates. Pulse until well combined
- Flatten the mixture on a parchment-lined baking sheet or plate to create the crust for the pizza
- In a bowl, combine the coconut milk (making sure to include most of the thick cream at the top of the can), maple syrup, and lemon juice. Beat for 5-8 minutes, until the mixture is light and fluffy
- Spread the coconut cream mixture over the top of the flaxseed crust, then add the sliced fruit to top
- When ready to serve, let the fruit pizza sit at room temperature for roughly 10-15 minutes. The coconut cream will harden as it’s cooled, so warming is slightly will bring it back to it’s originally creamy state
