Sweet Tooth: Mango Berry Crumble

It's the weekend! Any cool plans? I'm off to a friend's wedding shower tomorrow, with a raw pie in hand (will post that soon).

Here's one of my favorite summer treats. It's light, easy, and works well with any fruit. It's also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on the side - too bad that I didn't have any this time around. I have a fridge and freezer full of freshly picked blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries... I'm so grateful for all this abundance!

Mango Berry Crumble

You'll want to make the crumble before processing the 1/2 cup of berries in the food processor because you want a dry processor container.

Crumble:

1 cup walnuts
1/2 cup pitted, packed medjool dates
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup ground oat groats or oats - OR 1/2 cup cashews
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch of salt

In a food processor, grind all but the vanilla into a crumbly texture. Add the vanilla and pulse to combine. If you want the mixture to press together a bit better, add 1 teaspoon of water. Transfer to a bowl while working on the fruit and then evenly spread the crumble over the berries. Serve immediately, chill for a few hours, or dehydrate for a few hours until warm.

Fruit:

2 cups diced mango
2 cups diced strawberries
2 cups blueberries
About 1/2 heaping cup berries

Blend the 1/2 cup of berries in a food processor (it's fine to keep some texture). Toss all ingredients together and spread them into the bottom of an 8x8" pan (feel free to add more berries).

Go eat some berry crumble! Here's another dessert I've recently whipped up - a simple blueberry pie. No recipe, just a "throw together". A walnut date crust, a layer of diced mango, and a blueberry filling which consisted of blueberries, young coconut pulp, lemon juice, maple syrup, and chia seed.

 

Happy weekend!

    HI Heather! I have a random question for you: I got a great deal on cocoa butter and bought a bunch- does it keep well if frozen? I have looked every where and can't find the answer!<br />Thanks!

    Thanks guys!<br /><br />woos - you don't need to freeze or even refrigerate cacao butter. It will keep a really long time at room temperature. :)

    That's great you got to see your best friend! And enjoy the outdoors with her. :)<br /><br />The crumble looks so good. Weird too, because I JUST finished eating a nectarine crumble of sorts when I read this. Love it! <br /><br />Hope you're enjoying your weekend!
