1.Let’s start with CAKES!

16 Light & Tasty Spring Recipes

  • Nothing beats light and airy, tall and elegant, simple Angel Food Cake smothered with honey glazed strawberry sauce. If this doesn’t scream spring, I don’t know what does!
  • Ok, I had to include these cute Mini Carrot Cakes with Candied Pecans. They’re not only perfectly popable, they’re just so darn adorable to look at! Add this to your Easter menu!!
  • This’s super unusual, I know! But hear me out… This creamy delicious Carrot Cheesecake doesn’t taste like carrots at all. Just smooth and creamy tinted cheesecake with rich and nutty crust! Ah, and the tangy sour cream topping is to die for too!
  • And let’s not forget to have this rustic Layered Carrot Cake this season. Super moist and dense cake layers filled with classic cream cheese filling! So-so-goooood!!

  • I don’t usually make carefully layered smoothies, like this Rainbow Smoothie, on daily basis. Not even on weekly, or monthly basis, to be honest! It’s reserved for special occasions only, and I think welcoming spring is totally considered that special occasions. Wouldn’t you agree?
  • Strawberry Mojito!!! A big pitcher-full!! Yes, yes, please!! So refreshing and delicious!
  • Another delicious batch drink you could make for Easter brunch is this fancy-looking Moscato Sangria! Takes minutes to make it, impressive and oh-so-delicious! Just imagine having a bowl full of boozy fruits at the end. I die!
  • If you’re in the mood for some tropical flavors, this Pineapple Coconut Spritzer is for you! It’s amazingly refreshing, obviously!
