The best summer dessert recipes
The secret of the best summer desserts is the use of organic fruit and minimal sweetener.
How To Make Blueberry Crumble With Cherries
In this recipe for blueberry crumble with cherries, we make the fruit shine by using lemon juice and just a touch of sweetener.
First I put the frozen fruits in the baking dish. It doesn’t need to be thawed. The baking process will do it for you.
Arrowroot Gluten Free Thickener
After adding the organic lemon juice to the frozen fruits, I toss in the arrowroot which is a great thickener.
The arrowroot prevents the juice of the blueberries and cherries from becoming too watery.
What is Arrowroot a replacement for?
Traditional recipes typically use cornstarch as a thickener.
I’m on a corn-free diet and haven’t eaten it in over two decades, so I’m not sure if and how it would work in my recipe for blueberry crumble with cherries.
Corn starch substitute
If you don’t want to use my beloved arrowroot, feel free to experiment and change the recipe to suit all your wants and needs.
Recipes with a food processor
My food processor is one of my favorite tools in the kitchen.
It’s absolutely essential and saves me a ton of time in that blueberry crumble with cherries and my other recipes.
Low carb almond flour crumble
I use my food processor to make the low-carb almond flour topping.
Cut the butter into several pieces when making this gluten-free streusel.
Butter + almond flour = heaven
If the butter mixes with the almond flour, you won’t be disappointed!
The taste of almond flour and butter is out of this world.
Vegan fruit chip
If you’re looking for a vegan blueberry crumble, instead of using butter, use the palm shortening option in this recipe.
Is honey vegan?
And don’t forget the honey, it’s not vegan! So use the maple syrup option.
