Chef and Author Devin Alexander shows you how to make a delicious guilt-free dessert.


  • 6 cups fresh mixed berries
  • 1 ½ tablespoons plus ½ tablespoon zero calorie natural sweetener, divided
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 tablespoons whole grain oat flour, divided
  • 30 grams (about 1/3 cup) stevia sweetened natural vanilla protein powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegan butter (from a stick, not a tub)
  • 1 ½ cups high protein, low calorie, stevia sweetened vanilla ice cream (preferably natural)

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

2. In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the berries, 1 ½ tablespoons of the sweetener, and 2 tablespoons of flour until well combined. Spoon the mixed berries evenly (about ¾ cup in each) among 6 ramekins (4 ½ inches in diameter; 1–1 ½ cups capacity). Place the ramekins on a baking sheet large enough to hold them in a single layer so they sit flat.

3. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour, the protein powder, the remaining ½ tablespoon of sweetener, the cinnamon, and the vegan butter to a small mixing bowl. Using a fork or pastry blender, stir the flour mixture together to create a crumble. Divide the crumble evenly over the top of the fruit in the ramekins (about 1 ½ tablespoons per ramekin).

4. Bake until the crumble is golden on top and the berries are hot throughout, about 14–20 minutes. Let the crumbles cool for 3 minutes. Top each with ¼ cup of ice cream to enjoy immediately. Cover any remaining crumbles with plastic wrap and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat them in the oven then top them with ice cream just before enjoying.
