When I think of spring time, I imagine light fluffy desserts made with berries and citrus. This Lemon Raspberry Fluff fits both of those categories.

I know a lot of you are still buried in snow and cold weather, but here in Florida everything is blooming and it’s been in the 80’s for the past two weeks. It’s officially Spring time here.

Actually, I am currently battling an awful sinus infection from all that blooming. Every morning our cars are covered in so much pollen they are solidly yellow/green on top.

So to soothe my sore throat and non-stop pounding head, I am going to eat ALL of these Lemon Raspberry Fluffs. I’m pretty sure the vitamins in the lemons and raspberries can cure me.

Or at the very least, I will be happy with a full stomach while I sit here feeling awful in a pile of tissues and nyquil. Either way, I”m good.

You only need a few easy ingredients to make these Lemon Raspberry Fluffs and you probably already have most of them on hand!

I like to make my own Lemon Curd, but if you don’t have the time, this brand is a great alternative. You can find it at Publix or Walmart.

And yes, before anyone asks, of course you can use any other type of fruit you would like! I personally think strawberries or blueberries would both be awesome alternatives!

Not only is it gorgeous, but it also travels very easily. It’s the perfect dessert to bring to a party or bbq! Just remember to keep it chilled. Bonus: It’s gluten free — just in case someone like my husband is there. 😉

I hope you enjoy this Lemon Raspberry Fluff as much as my family does!
