Happy Summer! I just love love summer, there is something so amazing about this time of the year. As a foodie and a dietitian, I love the bounty of fresh summer berries. I love the taste of a juicy, fresh, and seasonal berry. I love the taste juicy berries in a crisp. I often will make a crisp for dessert if we are having guests over, trust me if you want to “wow” your guests make this triple berry summer crisp.
Crisps are incredibly easy to make and you will find most of your ingredients in your pantry. Not only are crisps easy to make but they are nutritious and taste amazing, especially when we have an abundance of fresh berries at our finger tips.During the summer months, I add fresh, local seasonal berries that the girls and I have picked, but you can easily substitute the berries for any fruit that you have on hand.
