Warm Blackberry Compote + Greek Yogurt and Granola – the perfect breakfast recipe for a crowd or just for two. Never buy yogurt “with fruit on the bottom” again!
Oh my gosh you guys – put this on your list of things to do this weekend. Like, right now. Here, I will even make your list for you: blackberries, sugar, 1 lemon, your favorite Greek yogurt and the best granola you can find (or make some homemade granola). That’s it. Just a few ingredients will get you a little bowl of heaven. Blackberries not your thing – the recipe can be used for blueberries or raspberries too. If you have a crowd of people coming over for brunch, make this ahead of time and re-heat for the part-ay. Or, keep it all for yourself. Hey – I’m not here to judge.
So you have your bowl of Greek yogurt (which in and of itself is pretty awesome – I used vanilla-flavored in the picture and it was perfection), now picture those blackberries (which have been simmering in their own juices, a bit of lemon juice, water and sugar), picture them being drizzled over your yogurt and you get to swirl it in with your spoon…. sprinkle a little granola on top or even go crazy and some honey too. Your days of buying yogurt with fruit on the bottom will be over. Why would you eat that when you can have warm blackberry compote on top of your yogurt?
Kid-friendly? I don’t even think you need to ask. Look at it. You know it is.
By the way, the raspberry version literally tastes like you are eating a raspberry pie. Just sayin.
I have officially found my new favorite breakfast. I refrigerated the raspberry version (the blackberry was devoured within minutes of my photo shoot by both myself and the rest of my family) and it was perfect to use throughout the week either for a snack or a bring-to-work breakfast. Next Christmas, I am bringing this to the table for sure – yogurt bar anyone?
Alright, on to the pictures. A feast for the eyes.
Was that excessive? I don’t even care if it was.
By the way, I want to thank you guys for all the support that you have shown me following my last post! I kind of went out on a limb and you guys only made me feel more motivated – so thank you!!!!
