    Oh my gosh, you guys. The amount of mint I had last month was insane. I felt like I couldn’t keep up with all the mint plant was producing. In case you couldn’t tell that I was up to my eyeballs in mint…I have yet another recipe that I incorporated mint into.

    I wanted to make mint simple syrup as a way to get rid of it all easily but I also wouldn’t use it often because I don’t typically put sugar in my lattes. So this strawberry mint crisp was born! I swear mint goes so well with any summer fruit. Makes sense, I guess. Mint reminds me of summertime so a summer herb of course would go well with summer fruit. It’s like summer on summer!

    My favorite part of anything is usually the top or topping. I love muffin tops, crumbles, crisp toppings — all the tops! So naturally, my favorite part of this strawberry mint crisp was the crisp topping. It has a slight coconut flavor to it from the coconut oil but it paired so perfectly with the coconut chocolate chip gelato that we put on top of the strawberry mint crisp!

    Oh, and I know someone is going to mention the pool of liquid in the photos. I didn’t let this set up very much prior to shooting this. I literally pulled it out of the oven and plated them. Don’t make the same mistake!

    I was running out of light for the day (shocking because it’s summer) so I had to hurry and get this shot! So excuse the entire strawberry puddle. It won’t be like that for yours — I promise!

    Making this tonight! Can’t wait to try it. Is there any way to make it ahead of time so you can bake it while you eat dinner maybe?

      Hi, sorry I missed this. yes, you can totally make this ahead of time. Just mix the filling and let it sit and then the topping you can make ahead of time, too.
