Sugar Free Crumble

Berry Crumble

Sugar Free Berry Crumble

I love making this lush berry crumble; it takes minutes to prepare and can be served warm or cold with custard, thick natural yoghurt, a light drizzle of coconut cream, el naturale or with ice-cream if the whole sugar-free thing isn’t your cup of tea.

The use of frozen berries means it’s super quick to prepare and the crumble topping can be personalised to suit your preferences or what’s in your pantry. Hazelnuts, macadamia’s and pistachios are personal favourites of mine, although this combination with the coconut and almonds is delicious!
