Strawberry Crumble

Hey there friends! Summer has so many benefits and one of my favorites is spending time with my family picking fresh veggies and fruits. I know we can all agree that fresh is better when it comes to creating flavorful desserts. My family and I just went to a local strawberry field and picked about 25 lbs of fresh strawberries. If you have ever gone to pick your own food, then you know you always leave with way more than you anticipated once you finally make it to the checkout line.

So once we got home, I got right to work on new recipe ideas that I can include these fresh berries in. With it being summer, my mind first went right to a fresh homemade strawberry pie which is a staple for most seasonal cookouts and get-togethers. But if you are planning on hosting a large event, one pie just isn’t going to cut it. That’s where I got the idea of making a crumble. 

A crumble is basically an upside-down pie with the filling underneath your crunchy topping. Allow me to introduce the Strawberry Crumble recipe.

This isn’t any old crumble because the topping is flavored with sweet coconut that giving this recipe a tropical flavor that does not overpower the fresh strawberries which we definitely want to keep as the highlighted flavor. 

Strawberry Crumble is perfect for sharing because it is easy to serve and you get a larger amount to share than with a traditional pie. 

The filling has a citrusy tang added to the berries to enhance their flavor and keep them fresh and bright.

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
