Mix up your breakfast with these fruity, delicious and totally healthy yoghurt & fruit compotes.
If you're like me and you often like to pair your yoghurt bowls with some fresh fruit, then you'll love this simple breakfast/snack idea.
These fruit compotes come in three different flavours: strawberry, blueberry and peach and nectarine. And despite their juicy and sweet flavour, they're all free from refined sugar.
You can make these fruit compotes ahead of time or on the dot within 10 minutes, and believe me, it couldn't be any easier to make your own freshly made compote.
What is fruit compote?
If you've never really heard of compote before, then it's best described as a simple fruit sauce made with fresh or frozen fruit and sweetened with sugar. But don't worry, you'll use stevia (if you wish) and a little lemon and lime to sweeten your homemade compotes.
Compote isn't quite as thick as jam or jelly, and it's meant to be consumed quite soon after it's been made (roughly a week). After all, it is fresh fruit! I like to store my fruit compote in an airtight jar in the fridge.
How to make fruit compote
To make your fruit compote, all you need to do is throw your ingredients into a saucepan, bring to the simmer and leave to cook for 10 minutes. Once your compote is soft and relatively juicy, grab a potato masher and press down on the fruit to squish. I then pour my compote into my jars and leave on the side to cool down completely before popping them in the fridge.
And just in case you're wondering, yes you can use frozen fruit! Just follow the same steps and happy fruit compote making!
