Happy Monday! For those of you in the States, hope you’re enjoying a wonderful Memorial Day, however you’re spending it. In the spirit of relaxing long weekends (I’m actually off for a change!), I’m sharing a simple, healthy dessert that will help any day feel like a vacation.

I’ve been really into fruit crisps this spring. Though these usually take some time to bake in the oven, you can totally make a shortcut version. I’ve been enjoying this as a quick & easy lunch dessert on some of my work-from-home days. You can use whatever fruit you have on hand. My current favorite involves a combo of peach and blueberry, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand.shortcut fruit crisp
