After April showers come May flowers, right? Well May is just around the corner and soon spring will be in full bloom. Take advantage of longer days, warmer temperatures and fresh springtime produce with these fair-weather dessert recipes.

Grilled Banana Splits from foodnetwork.com are almost too cute to eat and extremely easy to put together. Simply wrap a split, unpeeled banana in aluminum foil, grill for a few minutes and top with your favorite sweet condiments. This creative dessert will please all the kids (and kids at heart) at your table.

For a unique twist on a classic favorite, try Chocolate Chip Strawberry Shortcakes from food2.com. Layers of fresh strawberries and whipped cream are nestled between two soft chocolate chip biscuits in this satisfyingly sweet sandwich.

Soft, fresh peaches are the stars of food.com’s recipe for Upside-Down Fresh Peach Cobbler. A flaky crust lines the base of this decadent dish and is topped with a mixture of ripe fruit, butter and sugar. After less than an hour in the oven, this mixture will be bubbling before your eyes.

Giada De Laurentiis’ recipe for Mixed Berries with Limoncello from cookingchanneltv.com is the ideal way to end any spring dinner on a light and refreshing note. Fresh raspberries, blueberries and strawberries are tossed in a cool mixture of limoncello (an Italian dessert liqueur) and mint. Scoop atop William Granger’s Lemon Pound Cake for a completely zesty plate.
