This triple berry crisp recipe calls for frozen raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, but we think swapping for fresh fruit makes this dessert even better! The crunchy topping and sweet berries are the perfect combinations, and for an even more decadent treat try serving this crisp warm with a scoop of ice cream or vanilla yogurt.
