I love summertime because it means the grocery stores get tropical fruit in stock. Growing up, my Lola (grandma in Filipino) would cut mangos up for me and I’d eat them off the peel, with that pulpy, sticky juice running down the side of my face.
With a few almost-too-ripe mangos and some white nectarines in my fridge, I decided to give one of my absolute favorite desserts, the peach crisp, a summery upgrade.
This sweet, juicy crisp combines the tropical fruitiness of the mango with the warm flavor of cinnamon. I served mine up á la mode. Try yours with regular or dairy-free vanilla ice cream (I like Trader Joe’s soy vanilla) or some CocoWhip!
If you don’t have that many mangos or nectarines, just try to come up with about four cups of fruit. Enjoy!
