Cherry and strawberry crisp that’s naturally grain free, sweetened without refined sugar, with a perfect crisp upper crust and a bubbling cherries and berries underneath? Yes my friends, we are talking paleo cherry and strawberry crisp today and this sweet treat is about to win over your summer loving heart.
There’s something about a fresh fruit crisp that is the very epitome of summer dessert charm. It’s a simple + humble treat that, when paired with a scoop of creamy (in this case, dairy free) vanilla ice cream is like the cherry on top of a perfect summer day.
We’ve been doing a lot of that simple cooking these days as the light ebbs long into the evening hours (although we are on the other side of that trend now, it will still be awhile before we’re eating dinner in the dark).
Dinners on our deck with the cool evening breeze are embraced as often as possible, usually with a glass of rosé (for me) and a cold beer (for him) in hand. And when you top off some sublime al fresco dining with a bowl of fresh paleo cherry strawberry crisp, we’re talking pretty near perfection as far as simple home feasting is concerned.
Wooohoo Tuesday! While not normally the most exciting day of the week, we’re gonna embrace the hell out of it today with some roasted strawberries with mint and airy yogurt cream that’s gluten free and refined sugar free bc WE CAN AND IT”S DELICIOUS!
IMHO every weekday deserves a healthy indulgence like this.
Have you guys every played around with roasting strawberries? Like all fruits (and veggies), when roasted, the sugars in them start to caramelize, creating a more intensified flavor without adding any extra ingredients. The magic of cooking techniques is REAL, YO!
Which ended up being the perfect cooking techinique for this recipe because I bought some strawberries from the store that LOOKED amazing but really just tasted like winter strawberries in the PNW. I should have known better. I guess the Spring (and really summer) produce idealist in me took over my thought process! But that didn’t stop my determination to make something truly delicious out of them anyways, and satisfy that craving that I had for that ripe juicy strawberry flavor.
