Saturdays for my family, means we go hang out on our boat in the marina paddle boarding, riding in the dingy, and soaking up some sun. Normally, we’ll come home in the early evening, grill a simple healthy dinner, and I’ll make dessert. Avoiding guilt, I prefer to make desserts that contain mostly fruit. This mixed berry crisp is one of my favorites.
Sometimes, I buy a varieties of berries such as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries. However, I do keep large bags of frozen mixed berries in my freezer too which I use when I haven’t had the chance to stock up on fresh berries. Any mixture of berries works well in this crisp. What sets this berries crisp apart from the others is the almond paste in the topping.
Thank goodness for Trader Joes, because of that store I have discovered the absolute best replacement for real dairy butter. Its vegan and absolutely just as delicious as real butter. Miyoko’s Vegan Butter is made from coconut oil and cashews and has the texture and taste of European butter. Using vegan butter made me love this mixed berry crisp even more!
