This speedy berry compote is full of wonderful flavors and equally delicious served with yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream, french toast, and pancakes.

All you need is fresh or frozen berries and sugar.

This Berry Compote is so easy to make. Just take fresh some berries and sugar, and cook them until the berries soften and their juices become wonderfully thick and syrupy (about 10 -15 minutes). You can also add a splash of orange juice for a fresh citrus touch. I like to mash the berries with the back of my spoon while they’re cooking.

The compote is more of a method than a recipe, and the sky is the limit in terms of what fruit combinations you can come up with.

It can be stored in the refrigerator and warmed up as needed.

I love this compote with my plain whole milk yogurt. It’s my go-to snack and I pack it in my lunch.  So much better and cheaper than store-bought fruit-on-the-bottom yogurts, which are usually full of sugar. Some have as much as 20 grams of sugar and lots of artificial this and that.  With the homemade version, you can control the sweetness and save some money.

How about some creamy steel-cut oats topped with this berry compote? It’s all I’ve been eating for breakfast lately. Helps me start the day on a great note. This breakfast is the perfect combination of warm, fruity, sweet, simple, nutritious and good for me.

Give this berry compote a try. It barely takes any effort and you’re going to feel so good about knowing exactly what’s in it and save some money in the process.
