No-Bake Orange Berry Crumble

Serves 6.


    No-Bake Orange Berry Crumble

    Who thinks fruit crisps need to be baked? This rich red dessert certainly doesn’t. And by not baking, there’s less risk of nutrient loss. This crumble is easy to assemble and guaranteed to impress. More importantly, it’s chock full of antioxidants—the darling essential for heart-healthy goodness.


    Wine pairing

    Avoid after-dinner wines that are overly sweet, as they’ll overpower the berry crumble, causing fruit to be too tart. Choose a sparkling wine that is light and not too cloying, such as a Canadian Muscat produced from grapes grown selectively in areas such as BC, Ontario, and Nova Scotia.


    Pack a little twist of additional flavour into your berry crumble with a little drizzle of blackberry ginger-flavoured balsamic. And if you have a penchant for vanilla, replace plain yogurt with vanilla yogurt or ice cream.
