While frozen blueberries are perfectly fine for this light blueberry crisp, I enjoy using fresh plump blueberries, which turn from a dusky blue to a deep purple as they're cooked. Enjoy this light blueberry crisp with a warm low-fat custard sauce, or with some frozen vanilla yogurt.

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups blueberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
