Sweet and Juicy Blackberry Crumble

This is the first Blackberry Crumble I’ve made. I’m a big fan of blackberries, but had never made a crumble with them, so I looked at some different recipes and came up with my own version.

The blackberries have just the right amount of sweetness, with a little punch of flavor from the lemon juice, and the buttery, brown-sugar crumble topping is a great finishing touch. I like using oats in the topping, too—anything with oats always seems a little healthier to me! 🙂

It’s a treat that will help cool you off, and you can feel good about drinking it too—win, win, win! 🙂 I was inspired by a recipe at Food.com, but changed it up a little, using honey instead of sugar and a little more strawberries—I think it’s a great soda!
