      Hi Jennifer, you can sub a non-dairy butter substitute (like Earth Balance buttery sticks) for the butter, and use a dairy-free ice cream. Enjoy!

    I made the blueberry peach crisp three times this month.But I wonder if peeling the peaches, which I did, made a difference. I liked it and the people I made it for LOVED it.

    I love the idea of peach crisp, but blueberries are getting kind of pricey on the east coast… If I were to substitute nectarines, about how many would I need?

      Hi Jonathan, I’m not a big fan of margarine, but you can certainly make the substitution. I’d recommend Earth Balance natural buttery sticks, they’re the closest thing I’ve found to butter and I think it’s the healthiest margarine out there. If you can find it organic, even better. Enjoy!

    Loved the recipe. My family enjoyed the heck out of it. Loved the thickening of the tapioca. Do you think this would freeze well?

    I made this for my family and they absolutely loved it!!!! It was so delicious and the vanilla ice cream was the perfect balance with the dessert!

    I made this recipe yesterday. So easy! So delicious! It was gone before the night was up. I substituted blackberries from our garden for the blueberries, and it was a hit! Yum!

      Hi Martha, Minute Tapioca can usually be found in the pudding section of the supermarket in a small box. It’s a type of tapioca (think tapioca pudding), and it is quick-cooking. It can also be used as a thickener. I prefer it for thickening pies, crisps and puddings rather than corn starch or flour– it gels better and doesn’t change the color of the fresh fruit filling (flour and cornstarch can give the filling a milky appearance).

    SF is one my favorite places as well. I visited ten years ago and I think I am due for another one. I don’t remember visiting this location but it will sure be on the list next time.
    That is why I gain weight on trips, since I can not pack and bring stuff back, I just eat like there is no tomorrow 🙂
